ABSTRACT
The article reports on the accusations raised by the Nevada Policy Research Institute, a conservative Nevada think tank, against the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority of Nevada. The think tank accuses the authority of playing fast and loose with the taxpayers' money, claiming that the authority has overly cozy relationships with contractors and spends tax dollars on luxuries like fine food and wine for officials. The think tank has compiled public documents that provide evidence for its allegations against the authority.
