LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Nevada lawmakers will resume work Thursday on balancing the state’s budget amid plummeting revenue projects.
Lawmakers began discussing budget cuts on Wednesday. Currently, there is a $1.2 billion revenue shortfall.
Gov. Steve Sisolak’s proposal would cut $233 million from the Department of Health and Human Services. In the Assembly, lawmakers deliberated over proposals to cut about $160 million from K-12 education, and $190 million from higher education from the state budget.
The special session will continue until an agreement is reached.
