@VegasMaggieEsq @LauraKMM They would just get more expensive meals here in Vegas. Only difference.

@VegasMaggieEsq @LauraKMM It would have a substantial impact.
Anyhow, I don't care THAT much. But I don't think it's so simple, either.

In an effort targeting Las Vegas' largest developer, a major labor group says it will file a ballot initiative preventing Clark County from subsidizing a proposed Summerlin minor-league baseball stadium. The Southern Nevada Building and Construction Trades Council sent a letter this week to commissioners, calling the stadium "destined to be owned by a wealthy private corporation," a reference to Howard Hughes.

The state GOP, where truth goes to die and incompetence is rewarded, has been bragging since last week's primary about a "56 percent" success rate. Forget for a moment that for a party naming favorites in its own primaries, one for two isn't a great batting average. But that number is totally disingenuous, and I have said so.

State med board to docs: We won't stop you from getting into med pot business, but enter at your own risk
The state Board of Medical Examiners has issued an advisory opinion to licensed doctors who get into the medical marijuana business that says they enter "at their own legal peril." No prohibition from entering the business from the board, but plenty of trap doors outlined in the opinion: Violations of federal law, and possible discipline for failing to disclose salient information to patients.

Yes, it was The Snooze Primary, with near-record low turnout. Yes, it was The Sandoval Primary, with gubernatorial dominance. But beyond the tiresome victory news releases – ON TO NOVEMBER! – and the “lessons learned” instapunditry about an electorate that was one third the size of what we will see in November, some...
Jake Holder, who ran for Congress and got crushed last cycle, and won a contested three-way Democratic primary for Assemblyman Joe Hogan's seat this week, sent an email to a gaggle of Carson City advocates Wednesday that was quite simple: "Hello important lobbyists, "If any of you would like to meet or talk on phone please let me know. And, if you would like to contribute to my campaign, it would be appreciated:" Indeed. Now where do you suspect Holder obtained the list of who these "...
