Legislators too focused on growing government, regulating business

Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);1/5/2009, Vol. 26 Issue 1, pP25
The author reflects on the legislators in Nevada and their response to the economic problems of the state. He argues that the entrepreneurs are the ones who create jobs, not the government because all they create are anti-business bureaucracies, regulations, commissions and red tape. The author suggests that the government lets entrepreneurs create real jobs instead of regulating businesses and requesting bills for things like the creation of the State Renewable Energy Transmission Authority.
