County could snatch $1M in wedding license money from agency

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority soon could lose a big chunk of its funding used to promote wedding tourism.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Clark County Commissioners on Tuesday will weigh ending an agreement between the authority and Clark County that gives the authority $14 each year for every marriage license sold by the county. The authority received nearly $1.1 million last year from the deal after about 78,000 licenses were issued.

County Clerk Lynn Goya says she wants that money instead to be spent on promotions that attract international media attention.

Authority spokesman Jeremy Handel says his agency worked with Goya's office to create its marketing program. He did not say whether the agency would ask the commission to continue the funding.
