Sandoval's Budget Pits Lawmakers Against Each Other

Sandoval's Budget Pits Lawmakers Against Each Other

Though governor Brian Sandoval urged unity among lawmakers, the budget he unveiled last night during his last State of the State speech didn’t bridge a huge gap between Republicans and Democrats.The linchpin of his budget is some $60 million for private school vouchers – that is, taxpayer dollars to help parents pay for their child’s private school.Opponents say this money helps mostly wealthy parents, while doing little for the poor. Republicans say public schools are failing and this gives kids in bad schools a chance to get out.
