Governor Brian Sandoval’s proposed pay cuts and salary freezes for state
workers could save money, but may hurt Nevada in the long run. That’s what state workers told the Assembly Ways and Means Committee yesterday. They claim the governor’s plan would hurt education and lead valuable state workers to leave Nevada. Sandoval’s top budget official, Andrew Clinger, says the proposed five-percent pay cut and salary freezes would save nearly 600-million dollars over the next two years.
