Nevada Policy Supports Call for COVID-19 Spending Audit 

Federal Pandemic Money Misused in Nevada; Transparency Needed

Las Vegas  Nevada Policy Research Institute applauds and supports Sen. Scott Hammond’s call for “an audit of every state dollar spent from March 12, 2020 to May 20, 2022,” or the duration of Governor Sisolak’s Declaration of Emergency. Nevada Policy President John Tsarpalas issued the following statement: 

“The recent revelations by ProPublica into a fraudulent COVID testing company that operated in Nevada brings into question the process in which federal funds were distributed and to whom. Across the country, there has been large amounts of fraudmisuse and impropriety related to COVID funds.In the interest of transparency and accountability, a full audit is needed into how the billions of federal dollars Nevada received was spent, the process of awarding money and the connection of recipients to the grantors.”
