LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The Clark County Commission could decide today to eliminate newsstands along the Las Vegas Strip.

There are several items on the docket today, but the removal of all newsstands along the strip is probably the one most will be watching, with many asking if the removal would be a violation of freedom of speech.

Later this morning, the commission will vote after a public hearing to discuss the ordinance which would ban all news racks on the strip effective January 1. The ban is billed by the county as a necessary step to rid the sidewalks of obstacles that block pedestrian traffic.

The ban would apply to all news racks on Las Vegas Boulevard from Sahara to Russell road. Commissioners say the ban is needed to help pedestrian flow - but news rack owners call it an attack on their livelihood.

Another item being discussed today is the financial position of the Clark County Shooting Complex. County Commissioners will be looking into the possibility of hiring a private company to run the complex, because for the past three years it has not been self -sufficient.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
