A bill circulated Thursday in the Nevada Legislature would change existing law to allow for taxes generated in a "medical tourism" district in Clark County to be diverted to private projects.
Senate Bill 502 would change laws covering "tourism improvement districts" in Clark County to include, "any building or complex of buildings to accommodate or house activities as part of a multi-faceted center for medical tourism" to be eligible for a portion of state and local sales tax.
The bill also calls for the imposition of surcharges on items and services related to a minor league baseball stadium in Reno.
The bill requires a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to gain approval. Here’s a copy of the bill. No sponsor is listed.
