Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Clark County Commission is scheduled to discuss an anti-litter law at its meeting scheduled for today.
The new law would require so-called "smut peddlers" on the Las Vegas Strip to clean up items that they distribute from sidewalks and storm drains.
The law would require that people distributing handbills and pamphlets clean up every 15 minutes within a 50-foot radius of where they are standing.
The American Civil Liberties Union says that the anti-litter law may not be fair though because it would penalize one person for somebody else's litter.
