Legislative Session Means Business Boost for Carson City

Posted: Updated:
The Nevada Legislature is back in town. And while lawmakers are in Carson City, they fill up local businesses...like Comma Coffee.

“They're not my bread and butter...Carson City is my bread and butter...but they are like the frosting on the cake I suppose,” says June Joplin.
If you think business here is sweet, think about this: it's not just the lawmakers coming to town that pump money into businesses here....

"They impact our restaurants most of all but they stay in our apartment and in our hotels. And it's not just legislators they bring an entourage, the lobbyists come in droves,” says Ronnie Hannaman, Carson City Chamber of Commerce.

And everyone's happy to help them out.

"The last  few years they wanted houses but this year they wanted apartments and most of all they want to be close to downtown area" says   Angie Smith, Nevada Premiere Properties.

And the change of pace is a welcome change too.

"We enjoy the different energy....the suits and the high heels it's fun...something different,” says Joplin.
And something profitable too.

While they know they can count on the business for the next three months they also know it may go longer if the session goes over.
