As of New Year’s Day, 24 states and Washington, D.C., were running 51 school choice programs. Within the next four months, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee and Nevada have all enacted new school choice programs.
As it is currently written, we oppose SB193. We do strongly support the removal of the daily overtime requirement, but not when combined with an increase in the minimum wage. This increase in the minimum wage would be harmful for entry-level and low-skill workers.
To pitch his plan for a modified version of the margin tax before the Nevada Legislature, Gov. Brian Sandoval invited former governors Robert List, Richard Bryan and Bob Miller to sit before the Senate and Assembly Taxation Committees, meeting jointly.
We strongly support AB182. This an excellent bill full of common-sense reforms that will create a better balance of power between taxpayers and elected officials and unionized local government employees.
CARSON CITY – Today, the Nevada Policy Research Institute released an alternative line-by-line budget for Nevada, entitled the Freedom Budget 2016-2017.
CARSON CITY – In response to today’s hearing by the Senate and Assembly Taxation Committees on Gov. Brian Sandoval’s Gross Receipt Business License Tax, NPRI Executive Vice President Victor Joecks released the following comments:
Gov. Brian Sandoval can put on a political circus, but his dog-and-pony show can’t mask the problems with SB252, his Gross Receipt Business License Tax. In November, voters rejected a similar proposal by a 4-to-1 ratio, because they understood that raising taxes on businesses that are losing money will kill jobs and force struggling businesses to close their doors.
At 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, Gov. Brian Sandoval is going to make a presentation before the Senate Taxation Committee on SB252. That’s his bill to implement a Gross-Receipts Business License Tax, which is a modified version of the margin tax.
In campaign materials sent during the 2014 election, Gov. Brian Sandoval told voters that he wanted to “keep taxes low.” After getting elected, he's pushing for the largest tax hike in state history.
Assemblyman Randy Kirner’s excellent collective bargaining reform bill, AB182, is scheduled for a hearing in Assembly Commerce and Labor next Monday, March 16 at 1:30 p.m.
