School Budget Cuts Approved

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Clark County school board members voted yesterday to slash more than 300-million dollars from the upcoming budget.  The one-point-eight-billion-dollar budget that begins this July cuts spending for textbooks and supplies, and eliminates more than 18-hundred jobs. 

Employees will have to pay more for health insurance.  Class sizes will be increased by three students.  The proposed budget is still nearly 70-million dollars in the red, but officials hope to find additional funding from the Legislature.
