Economic Advancement: Laws should Encourage, not Stifle

Tom Clark: 'Our laws should encourage, not stifle, development'

There's a general conversation about "green" jobs and a "green" economy, but what does that really mean? What does that look like? And how do we get there?

Those were the questions raised in November when a panel of 13 industry leaders from large renewal energy companies, the utility, small developers and environmental experts gathered at Bishop Manogue High School to discuss these issues and start a dialogue with the community.

The result was a recognition that there is already some green activity in our community and the infrastructure is in place for a lot of future opportunities. However, a lack of financing, education and a "green culture" in Nevada are the primary barriers to making them a reality.
