Sandoval Erases Pay Cuts, Keeps Furloughs

(Las Vegas, NV)  Nevada state government and public employee salaries for the next two years are now officially funded.

Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval signed the four remaining main budget bills into law Monday.

The state employee pay bill erases the 2.5 percent pay cuts imposed two years ago, and it maintains six days of furloughs per year.

An appropriations bill allocates about $4 billion for general fund spending in the 2014-2015 fiscal years, and another $100 million was designated for capital improvement projects. A fourth bill authorizes the others.

The largest budget bill, funding education, was one of the first bills signed after the 2013 Legislature adjourned.

Sandoval also signed off on a two-year study of the costs of Nevada’s death penalty and a bill paving the way for hydraulic fracturing in Nevada.
