A Victory for Nevada Tourism

May 6, 2009

In March, NTA sent a letter to the Nevada legislature in support of the Nevada Commission on Tourism. The letter was prominently featured on the "Save Nevada Tourism" Web site and placed in special packets prepared for every state legislator.

The letter addressed issues surrounding Gov. Jim Gibbons’ initiative to merge the Tourism and Economic Development Commissions, eliminate the state tourism director’s position and cut the state’s tourism budget by 50 percent.

The Nevada state legislature met on these issues last week and the outcome was very positive. The proposed merger of the two commissions was dropped, the state tourism director’s position was not eliminated and the proposed 50 percent budget cut was reduced to 33 percent.

NTA salutes the Nevada state legislature for preserving the Tourism Commission and for preserving most of the Commission’s funding in this time of economic distress.
