Nevada Proposal Would Limit Number of Limos

Posted on April 3, 2003 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

LAS VEGAS — A bill has been proposed in the Nevada Legislature that would restrict the number of certified limousines in the state. Assembly Bill 518 would cap the number of limousines in Nevada to the number in operation when, and if, the bill passes.

The proposal is currently before the Nevada Legislature.

AB 518 also would direct a two-year study into the allocation of limousine permits in the state.

The new measure asserted that an “excessive” number of limousines has adversely affected the “integrity and viability” of the state’s limousine industry.

“A great majority of the limousine and taxi operators in Southern Nevada are in agreement that significant damage to the tourism industry and the visibility of both the taxi and limousine industry could occur absent legislative action and study,” the measure claimed.

At least one operator expressed concern with the bill, calling it “another attempt for the big guys to squeeze out the little guys.”

The measure would make it more difficult for smaller operators to stay afloat, said lobbyist A.R. “Bob” Fairman, who also runs Carson City, Nev.-based No Stress Express. Limiting the number of operators allowed to enter the Nevada limousine market and prohibiting the growth of those that are already in it means that Nevada will no longer have a fair market, he said.
