Or words to that effect. In an opinion i have obtained, the Legislative Cousnel Bureau rebuts a long-running mining lobbying corps' argument that passing SJR15 would lower the industry's tax burden. Not so, says the LCB. And it only takes a majority vote to put it on the ballot. Read all about it, posted here.
UPDATE2 -- GOVERNOR OPPOSES -- Here is his statement, via his spox: In his balanced budget, the Governor's commitment to K-12 education has increased spending for our schools, including an additional $135 million general fund investment. What's more, because the economy is growing and local revenues are up, overall spending on K-12 education is up over $400 million from last biennium. The Governor's budget included increased spending for education without increased taxes. The Governor...
This was inevitable, I suppose. Embattled Assemblyman Steven Brooks has filed a brief, though his attorney Mitchell Posin, with the state Supreme Court, arguing he cannot be banned from doing his job. This was always a danger when lawmakers moved so swiftly to create a select committee, give ChairmanWilliam Horne absolute power and then immediately banish an elected official from the place where he is supposed to do his elected business. Posin's argument distilled: Lawmakers imposed an "extra-...
Back in 1999, the undersecretary of energy swatted away concerns about geologic disposal at Yucca Mountain. ''There is certainly science left to do and being done,'' Dr. Ernest Moniz told The New York Times in a piece headlined: "New questions plague nuclear waste storage plan." But, Moniz added, ''One way or another we've got to advance toward geological disposal. We're pushing it hard. The science case is building up nicely. If we have to delay in the end we'll delay. But I see no reason not...
UPDATE: Legal eagles now providing unsolicited but potentially sound...legal opinions. Could lawmakers have an out with Article 15, Sec. 3? Sec. 3. Eligibility for public office. 1. No person shall be eligible to any office who is not a qualified elector under this Constitution. If Brooks were convicted of a felony, he is no longer a "qualified elector," so doesn't that mean he can't serve? Of course none of this would matter if Brooks were to resign or were to be expelled before...
Lawmakers will hear the teachers' union's margins tax proposal on Tuesday in a hearing that is sure to be full of sound and fury and signify punting. To the ballot, that is. But if it's not enough that Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick has poured cold water on the idea, during an appearance on "Ralston Reports", the Republicans are primed to rip the idea apart at the joint hearing. For the first time, the Assembly GOP has hired a policy adviser, Omar de la Rosa, who has helped the GOP form some...
UNLV student body president to Legislature, regents: I don't support what the rest of the student leaders want
UNLV student body President Mark Ciavola boycotted Nevada Education Day in Carson City last week and sent a scathing missive to regents and lawmakers about his colleagues' priorities. The memo, pasted below, indicates that Ciavola, a well-known Republican, former college GOP boss and ex-Rep. Joe Heck operative, is against many of the increased funding agendas of other student leaders. Ciavola clearly is causing controversy on campus, too, as this piece on a liberal website indicates. It's...
In a tart letter to Henderson City Attorney Josh Reid, attorney Todd Bice has essentially admonished the city not to use his client, Juliet Corp., to make its case against would-be stadium developer Chris Milam. The letter, attached here, is also not good for Milam because it says, contrary to news reports, that Juliet never made a deal with him because of what it discovered after doing its due diligence. (Bice was involved in Milam's dealings with the Hard Rock, which did not end well for the...
