The Nevada State business license, which is now up to $500 per year, entitles companies to conduct business in the State of Nevada for an entire year. But when the Governor ordered all non-essential business to shut down (mostly small businesses) they were denied the chance to operate for 3 or 4 months at least. And many are still only allowed to operate at only 50%. Shouldn’t businesses get a credit for the time the Governor ordered them to shut down and a partial credit for the time they operated at 50% capacity? Greed isn’t limited to businesses. According to Transparent, Nevada Barbara Cegasvke collected all of her $142,446.76 annual pay and benefits.
