Southern Nevada and northern Nevada have absolutely nothing in common. They are incompatible and there are no universal rules that can be adopted to govern both ends of the state. They cannot go their separate ways because the north and south cannot be legally divided.
But they can start to adopt rules and regulations that put more power into the areas where the power should be. The northern colleges should have one board of policy makers and the south should have its own.
Because money controls all human activities, the right to tax and spend should be given to the County Commissioners in their respective areas.
The inequitable funding between northern Nevada and southern Nevada is the result of giving one group the power to raise and distribute money rather than two groups, one for the north and one for the south, which would allow each government body to represent their constituents, and only their constituents. Each must have the power to tax and distribute those taxes.
