Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval will make a televised prime time address to talk about the state budget and the legislative session that enters its 13th week Monday.

Sandoval’s speech, scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, will come a day after updated revenue projections are released.

The Economic Forum, an independent panel of financial experts, meets Monday in Carson City to review current trends in tax revenues. At the end of the day, they will forecast how much money each revenue source will bring in during the next two years.

Under state law, those projections must be used to set the budget. Any programs or services that exceed the forecast must include a new funding source — though Sandoval has promised to veto any bill that raises taxes or fees.
