Students Speak Out Against Cuts

Gov. Brian Sandoval’s budget is getting failing grades from parents, students and government workers at the first public meeting on the new leader’s policies. Sandoval did not attend Saturday’s town hall in Las Vegas held by the Democratic leaders who run the Nevada Legislature. Dozens of state employees, case workers and teachers slammed Sandoval’s plan to close a $1.2 billion budget gap by slashing government services. Northern Nevada lawmakers also held a public budget hearing in Reno at the Washoe County commission chambers on Saturday. Protesters held signs with messages such as “What About the Children?” ”We Need Jobs,” and “Cuts Hurt — Stop the Bleeding.”
