In a piece about what The Sandoval Sweep has wrought for the governor, National Journal's Scott Bland distills it quite nicely: SPOTLIGHT: The Downside of Coattails Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) achieved every governor's dream this year: Not only did he win reelection by a smashing margin, his ample coattails ushered in other statewide Republicans who wiped out the Democratic bench down-ballot, and the GOP took over the state legislature, too. But unified control of government doesn't mean...
Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske has sent a letter to GOP operative Tony Dane, who has been doing robocalls as a precursor to legislative recalls, asking him why he did not disclose donors and why his company is in default with the SOS. The letter, attached here, is in response to a complaint from the Clark County GOP after the revelation that Dane contributed $245,000 to a PAC late last year, including $200,000 on an amended report, after he got clients he would not name to fund the recalls...
You have heard the meme by now: Gov. Brian Sandoval’s tax proposal IS EXACTLY THE SAME as what the teachers union proposed at the ballot in 2014. This is what opponents of the Business License Tax, most of whom know little about it or don’t care, already are telling people, including, in some cases, their constituents. Of course it’s not true. Yes, the new proposal is based on a businesses’ gross receipts, as others have been, including Question 3. But that’s where the similarities end. Let me...
Treasurer Dan Schwartz, who threatened during the campaign to present an alternative to the governor's budget even though he is simply charged with making state investments, has done just that. And the treasurer's alternative $6.8 billion plan, which removes the new business tax and mining tax components and is $500 million less then Brian Sandoval's budget, is online here. My favorite parts: ►Nevadans soundly rejected a tax very similar to the Business License Fee—the Margins tax— in this past...
UPDATED WITH GUBERNATORIAL DODGE, 3:45 PM: Spokeswoman Mari St. Martin: "The Governor made it clear in his State of the State address that he supports a school bond rollover in order to help provide Nevada's students with the best environment for students to learn. This legislation will be thoroughly vetted and possibly changed by the Legislature so he will not comment on its language until the final version, as approved by the Legislature, arrives on his desk for signature." ---- Or maybe it...
GOP leaders inserted redistricting language into the rules governing the 78th legislative session, a maneuver designed to keep an important bargaining chip in play while limiting mischief from within the Ass. GOP Caucus. The language, which is here in Rule 13, enables redistricting only if the chairmen of key committees introduce it or if leadership desires to do so. But why start the session off on such a presumably partisan note, although Assembly Democrats supported the language while Senate...
State Sen. Debbie Smith will not be in Carson City as the session begins because of what she told friends is a "serious health issue." Here's what she sent to friends last night -- it does not sound good: Friends, I wanted you to know I have a serious health situation unfolding. There will be a press release Monday morning but I wanted to tell you first. I am leaving town for more tests and will let you know when I know more. I'm not going to be at the swearing in and will most likely be...
