LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The Nevada State Education Association arrived at the Clark County Registrar today with a petition and a plan to get more money for public schools.

The group had more than 100,000 signatures backing its proposal. The petition deadline was today.

The plan would raise about $800 million through a tax on businesses earning more than $1 million in revenue.

The group has received resistance from a pro-business PAC called the Committee to Protect Nevada Jobs.

Last month the Nevada Supreme Court ruled the petition's language was misleading and incomplete, necessitating the re-submission.

If lawmakers don't approve the measure, it goes in front of the voters in 2014.
