State Legislature moving money around to cope with a $1.2 Billion budget short-fall

Nevada State Capitol
Lots going on in there including next door at the Legislature.

State lawmakers today started going through a badly “Covid-19-wounded” state budget trying to figure out where cuts must be made while putting recent federal grants to work to reduce the budgetary bleeding.  Preliminary information coming out of the legislature shows lawmakers are likely to keep state education spending untouched (teachers and administrators are happy about that) but at the expense of some important capital projects around the state. 

Teachers opposed to any cuts to K-12 education. 

Governor Sisolak says he’s leaving it up to the legislature to pump-and-trim the budget based on the greatest need.  Funds from emergency federal sources are helping but a major part of the state’s $1.2 billion dollar shortfall will likely remain, according to preliminary estimates.

The governor and the legislature will continue to analyze shortfalls versus available funds, which could include tax increases depending on how the 20 day budget review works out.
