ABSTRACT
the article focuses on the Nevada multibillion-dollar biennial budget's funding. The business sector and the casino industry in Nevada has long been at odds regarding the means of funding the state's biennial budget. The casinos are advocating a modification in business tax based on gross income receipts while the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce headed by Kara Kelley believes that cutting down costs on several state supported projects would be the best course of action.
