SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE
“While the Economic Forum projection is an improvement over what some have predicted, it plainly indicates that many difficult choices are still ahead.
“Based on the agency submissions I have begun to review, state government will need to make approximately $1.2 billion in reductions.
“While the decisions which lie ahead will be trying, we must commit ourselves to them. Nevada families and businesses are suffering and our budget cannot worsen the problem. State spending cannot get in the way of economic growth by imposing new taxes.
“I recognize there will be challenging decisions ahead and I pledge to continue to work hard every day.”
