One year ago, the Las Vegas City Council spent long hours wrestling with a new ordinance to make the FSE experience better. It had been drug down by street performers spending more time fighting and competing among themselves than they spent performing. They chased tourists down and extorted tips from them, nastily. The regulations we passed, and enforced, have definitely improved the visitor experience. And now, look! Downtown leads the state in recession recovery. Kudos to city staff and my colleagues on the Council!
