The Southern Nevada Legislative Scorecard
The Southern Nevada Legislative Scorecard

AIR DATE: August 1, 2011

For two or three decades some Southern Nevadans have complained about the trickery of legislators from the North who have managed to get more than their fair share from the state's coffers. And according to UNLV Political Scientist David Damore, the shift of Clark County money to the north continued in 2011. It continued even though 70 percent of the state's population lives in Southern Nevada and the master negotiator and protector of northern interests, Sen. Bill Raggio, retired. Damore tells us why this long-standing imbalance continues.
