No, it is not part of Sisolak's plan. The Resiliency Center predates the push for a state sponsored memorial. The 40 million dollars did not go towards this, it relies heavily on donations from the community.

"Resiliency" center..... the most liberal malarkey in years....Is that what Sisolak spent the 40 million on? A room full of con artists that sit around going on about a lie that some guy did all of that alone in a hotel room. WHAT A CON! Sisolak is the MOST CORRUPT gangster ever to steal an ekection in Nevada. Hes a sociopath that is responsible for thousands of deaths of CHILDREN in Nevada. Liberalism is a SCAM designed to steal money and FREEDOM.
