Phil's story: Nevada government forcing businesses to wait 'years' for building permits

Five years and over $500,000 later, the Pioneer Saloon
is still waiting for permits to be approved

Phil Regeski owns P.R. Engineering, a civil engineering and construction services company in Las Vegas. One of Regeski's clients, the Pioneer Saloon, located in the small town of Goodsprings, Nevada, has waited 5 years and spent over $500,000 trying to get construction permits approved by Clark County.

Recently, the Nevada Policy Research Institute, which publishes Nevada Journal, released a study on economic development, The Path to Sustainable Prosperity, which details steps Nevada needs to take to encourage entrepreneurs like Phil Regeski. The study is available at http://www.npri.org/issues/publication/the-path-to-sustainable-prosperity.
