Yes, I get that all of Nevada's business leaders want to kill The Education Initiative (I bet they love how that sounds). And I get that the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance, the southern chapter of the margin tax killing machine, would love to change the subject to the archaic statewide education funding formula known as The Nevada Plan. But this is not just apples and oranges; it is millions and billions. And on Tuesday, after Clark County School Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky spoke to the...
UPDATE: Want to know how easy it was for me to find one of these groups that hates gambling in general, not just web gaming, and believes it causes addictions and social ills? This easy. "The Louisiana Family Forum has a long history of opposing gambling..." The religious right does not like gambling, unless, of course, it's Ralph Reed and Jack Abramoff pitting one interest against the other. Trust me, folks: This Louisiana group is just the tip of the iceberg. The religious right hates...
Aguero: Margin tax will bring in as much as $750 million year, result in massive tax increase for retailers
The proposed margin tax will bring in between $650 million and $750 million a year, bringing business revenue in the state to more than $1 billion annually. Those are the findings of numbers maven Jeremy Aguero, who is preparing a report for the coalition opposing "The Education Initiative." The actual gross revenue from the margin tax is about $1 billion, according to Aguero's calculations, with the net estimate arrived at from credits to businesses paying the payroll tax. But they still pay...
Former Vice-President Dick Cheney will be the lead speaker at a March meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas, with embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also expected to attend, I've learned. The event will be chock full of potential 2016 hopefuls, including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Former UN Ambassador John Bolton and Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer also are scheduled at the March 28-30 conference. The meeting will take...
Coalition files federal complaint against parent company of St. Rose, alleging patient records used in negotiations
The Health Services Coalition, which represents a consortium of groups in hospital contract negotiations, has filed a federal complaint against the parent of St. Rose, making the startling allegation that Dignity Health used records to contact patients to leverage a better deal. The complaint, filed with the civil rights division of the federal health and human services department, is something else, alleging after bargaining broke down, the company took extreme measures: This complaint is...
UPDATED wit h statement from Gov. Sandoval: "Based upon the advice of the Attorney General’s office and their interpretation of relevant case law, it has become clear that this case is no longer defensible in court." ---- After much political blowback and a convenient legal decision on which to hang her hat, Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto today withdrew her brief to the Ninth Circuit that argued for upholding Nevada's gay marriage ban. You could see this coming after the SmithKline...
Adelson-backed coalition sends anti-online gaming missive to AGA members, attacks organization's claims
The Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling on Monday sent a letter to all American Gaming Association members, invoking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and calling for Congress to call a "time-out" and restore the Wire Act of 1961 that effectively would ban the practice. Forget how delicious it is that a Sheldon Adelson-backed group -- the letter is signed by the three ex-elected officials he hired as mouthpieces -- uses Reid to help make the case. The letter is followed by a sustained attack on...
