(Carson City, NV)  —  Governor Brian Sandoval has threatened to veto a bill that would allow Nevada school districts to use money from a reserve account to build and renovate campuses.  The state Senate approved the measure along party lines yesterday. 

Sandoval says it would leave a 300-million-dollar hole in his proposed budget and “harm education by taking money out of the classroom.” 

Democrats don’t have enough votes to override a veto.

    Good for Sandoval, about time we have someone in office that has the interest of the people and children in mind. Keep up the good work.

  2. Sarah Shepherd says:

    Interest of children? Really? He expects Clark County to cut $400 million from the schools in Clark County right now. Now your child will be in a classroom with a 40 to 1 ratio, with teachers who don’t get paid enough, and no money to use for books, computers, or supplies. Yes, great job Sandoval. While the casinos aren’t being taxed enough and getting away with everything. But, yes…he is putting our children first.
