A blueprint for getting the Silver State working again!

Daniel Honchariw

The most current fiscal projections indicate Nevada’s financial health is in serious jeopardy. With projections indicating Fiscal Year 2021 is roughly $1.2 billion shy of what the legislatively-approved budget requires, it is clear that government finances are in desperate need of cuts, innovation and clear policy guidance moving forward.

And it’s not just government finances at stake.

Roughly 30 percent of Nevadans are officially unemployed, with many more underemployed, in danger of being laid off or struggling financially thanks to months of economic shutdown.

As such, Nevada Policy has compiled policy solutions that, if implemented swiftly, will directly address challenges facing government agencies, private sector businesses and individual workers throughout the Silver State.

In conjunction with unavoidable—and necessarily dramatic—cuts to the FY2021 budget, reforms aimed at these three branches of public policy should be vigorously pursued to allow Nevada taxpayers, businesses, and individual workers the freedom to flourish in the wake of the COVID-19 economic crisis.
