Las Vegas Casinos are opening up slowly in a phased approach. This, according to local blogger Las Vegas Locally, is because there is not enough demand to support all the restaurants and casinos in Vegas after the shutdown.
Therefore, the logical question would be why did Governor Sisolak deem "construction" of new casinos essential? There is not enough demand to support to casinos we already have built. More casinos will keep our economy from recovering further.
