2017 Nevada - Summer Magazine

Summer 2017

The Big Dogs came out to play in Las Vegas at the Mob Museum and TCP Las Vegas May 4th and 5th. The annual Nevada Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association event featured a gourmet dinner, an entertaining speaker, and golf. This year's venue was a museum dedicated to the mob bosses who ruled Kansas City, Chicago, Boston and yes, Las Vegas. Our speaker was Frank Cullotta, a former mob enforcer. Frank pulled no punches in telling marketers and guests how business was done in the "firm," including Las Vegas, where Frank was based. It was not a pretty story, but a reflection on how the mob did business in the 1960s and 70s. Read More...

2017 Nevada State Report - Spring 2017

Spring 2017

In November, a blue tsunami washed away the 2014 red tide that took Republican control of both houses of the legislature, constitutional officer and a sitting governor. Unlike the majority of states, Nevada went big time blue in the state Senate and Assembly. The new Democratic majority has pledged to undo much of what the Republicans passed in 2015, except, of course, the commerce tax that has caused our members nothing but time, money and frustration.

NPM&CSA Opposes Carbon Tax

Fall 2015

In English this means a tax on transportation fuel like gasoline and most forms of electricity generation i.e. a national energy tax. Read More...

Last month's election in Nevada was not just a red wave but a red tsunami. Not only did the Republicans achieve majorities in both the Senate and the Assembly, they swept all six constitutional offices, which has not occurred since 1929. A surprise turn of events was turning Congressional District 4 red with the election of Cresent Hardy to the US House of Representatives, and holding both Congressional District 1 and 2 for the Republicans.

Nevada State Report - June 2013

Jun 2013

Last week saw the end of the 77th Session of the Nevada Legislature. More than 1000 bills were introduced in the 120 day session; 26 of them impacted petroleum marketers.

NPM&CSA did not sponsor any specific legislation but rather was on defense this session. Among the most egregious bills was a trial lawyers' effort to require any business that had video surveillance to produce a tape of an alleged slip or fall or other accident when requested by an attorney. This is the second session the trial bar has attempted to pass such legislation in Nevada. A broad-based coalition of small businesses was able to defeat their effort again this session.
