Each year, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition (SNRPC), the Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a group of community demographers and analysts work together to provide a long-term forecast of economic and demographic variables influencing Clark County's population growth. The primary goal is to develop a long-term forecast of the Clark County population that is consistent with the structural economic characteristics of the county. Toward this end, we employ a general-equilibrium demographic and economic model developed by Regional Economic Models, Inc. (REMI), specifically for Clark County.

In 2012, the Nevada State Highway Fund ran a deficit of $136.3 million. We project the deficit increasing to $377 million dollars in 2030. Closing the funding gap with motor fuel taxes will require about a 2.8-fold increase of the Nevada tax rate on motor vehicle fuels by 2030. Such an increase can be accomplished by adjusting the per gallon tax for inflation and fuel efficiency. Alternatively, the state may want to consider adopting a mileage tax on vehicles registered in the state or increasing fees for motor vehicle registration.
