PA46 requested a GPS runway 19L approach to las. I pulled up the approach plate on the system and cleared aircraft to requested fix hamig. My approach plate showed hamig on the staav 111 degree radial 7 mi fix; his showed over nellis AFB. I turned the PA46 left immediately heading 190 degrees; and descended aircraft to 8000 ft and called nellis with a pointout. We determined I did not have the current approach at my disposal. This appears to be turning into a common occurrence at las; and is very disturbing. Who is responsible for keeping the information in our system up to date? They certainly are not doing their job! Thank goodness lsv took the pointout or I would have had an airspace violation! Unacceptable!

Title: L30 CTLR DESCRIBED NEAR OPDEV WHEN CURRENT APCH CHARTS WERE NOT AVAILABLE AT THE CTL POSITION.
Narrative: PA46 REQUESTED A GPS RWY 19L APCH TO LAS. I PULLED UP THE APCH PLATE ON THE SYS AND CLRED ACFT TO REQUESTED FIX HAMIG. MY APCH PLATE SHOWED HAMIG ON THE STAAV 111 DEG RADIAL 7 MI FIX; HIS SHOWED OVER NELLIS AFB. I TURNED THE PA46 L IMMEDIATELY HDG 190 DEGS; AND DSNDED ACFT TO 8000 FT AND CALLED NELLIS WITH A POINTOUT. WE DETERMINED I DID NOT HAVE THE CURRENT APCH AT MY DISPOSAL. THIS APPEARS TO BE TURNING INTO A COMMON OCCURRENCE AT LAS; AND IS VERY DISTURBING. WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING THE INFO IN OUR SYS UP TO DATE? THEY CERTAINLY ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB! THANK GOODNESS LSV TOOK THE POINTOUT OR I WOULD HAVE HAD AN AIRSPACE VIOLATION! UNACCEPTABLE!
