Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada's statement on State of the State address

Posted: Updated:

PLAN released the following statement in response to Governor Brian Sandoval's state of the state address.

"It was refreshing to hear Governor Sandoval propose in his budget some of the same items Progressives have called for, including increased funding education. 18 days from now we will begin to see if Governor Sandoval can work with the new legislative body.

"We strongly oppose attempts to dismantle earned benefits of Nevada's working families. While we applaud Governor Sandoval's proposal to end furloughs, dismantling PERS and collective bargaining rights should not be an option in any budget negotiation. Our economy will never fully recover if we continue to look for ways to make our over-worked public employees poorer.

"We look forward to being an active part of the legislative session and ensuring the voices of Progressives across Nevada are heard loud and clear."
