State Budgets and Planning for the Future
State Budgets and Planning for the Future

Listen
AIR DATE: January 6, 2011

States in the Intermountain West like Nevada are likely to face budget challenges over the next decade. The reason? Poor planning and a lack of foresight in budget planning. That's according to a new report from Brookings Mountain West at UNLV. So do Nevadans and the state's elected leaders have the will to make things change? We discuss how Nevada can prepare for future state deficits and if the political process is in place to make it happen.

    Please speak to a gross or net receipts tax on big box stores such as Albertsons, Costco, Etc. I just looked at the weekly ad for zip code 89141 (here in LV) and the ad for 90027 (LA area). They are identical, yet the tax rates in CA are substancially higher than in Nevada. Seems to me they should be paying into our tax base.
