The author reflects on the budget shortfall and a tax increase coming before legislators in Nevada. He thinks that a moratorium on all room taxes should be declared until things turn back around instead of raising taxes on tourists. He states that Governor Jim Gibbons still needs to find approximately $1 billion in spending cuts or new revenue without increasing taxes in order to close the projected budget gap.
