See Avery v. Midland County, 390 U.S. 474 (1968); Board of Estimate of City of New York v. Morris, 489 U.S. 688 (1989). The latter case involved the issue of whether the New York City Board of Estimate was constitutional. It consisted of elected officials from around the City. To make a long story short, the U.S. Supreme Court found too much deviation from equal population representation in the Board and struck it down. There are considerable similarities between the Board of Esimate and the NVTA. If the NVTA consisted only of local government officials elected at large and used a weighted vote, it would be constitutional, IMO. But it doesn't.
