News

Southern Nevada's two air force bases brought in billions of dollars in 2008.

According to the air force's annual Economic Impact Analysis, Nellis and Creech Air Force Bases brought in more than $5 billion in the 2008 fiscal year. That's a 4-percent increase from the previous year.

The report says the two bases together are larger than any other employer in Clark County. There are 13,000 military and civilian jobs on the bases and nearly 6,000 jobs off the bases that are indirectly related.
