  13. Our Views: After one surprise disclosure, lawmakers should tread carefully on Harrah's leaseRead the original story w/Photo

    May 2, 2018 | The Advocate

    While it seems an army of lobbyists was deployed to push through a long-term renewal of the Harrah's casino lease, there appeared to have been little - if any - effort to inform lawmakers and the governor's office at the State Capitol that another Las Vegas company has an option to acquire the property. That may or may not be a deal-killer for the bill that breezed through the state House and appeared to be ready to pass the Senate as well.
