Op-ed on Nevada's second bite at the free market apple

By Anastasia P. Boden Attorney

The Las Vegas Review-Journal has published my op-ed on AB 240, Nevada’s renewed attempt to get rid of its Competitor’s Veto law.

As I write in the article:

Nevada also passed a repeal bill last term, but Gov. Sandoval vetoed it on the basis of purported safety concerns.

Of course, competitor’s veto laws have nothing to do with safety. Even the safest, most hard-working and honest entrepreneurs must be denied a license under competitor’s veto laws — simply because they will compete. If anything, getting rid of the competitor’s veto frees resources for government authorities to enforce laws that actually protect public safety.
