Krolicki opposes merger of tourism, development agencies

CARSON CITY ” Lieutenant Governor Brian Krolicki has told state lawmakers that he’s against a proposal by Gov. Jim Gibbons to merge the Nevada Commission on Economic Development and the state Commission on Tourism.

Krolicki says, “This merger makes little sense, in fact makes harmful sense,” adding that the two commissions have “different missions” and the proposal would diminish the missions of both. He says economic development and tourism are Nevada’s “bread and butter.”

Lawmakers said they were concerned that the merger would dilute both agencies’ ability to help recruit business and create jobs in the state. Assemblywoman Kathy McClain summed it up: “This proposed merger … sounds kind of dumb to me.”
