(AP) - Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons and Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki say the state Commission on Tourism will restart the Governor's Conference on Tourism after a two-year hiatus.
Krolicki, who is chair of the Nevada Commission on Tourism, says the conference was put on hold because of the economy and strained budgets.
Gibbons says in a statement that Nevada's tourism industry is a staple of the state's economic base and needs support. He says the costs of the conference have been scaled back but it will still offer a wide range of content.
The conference will be held at the Peppermill Resort Casino in Reno on Dec. 7 and 8.
