Governor Sisolak makes good on his promises to Nevada teachers and students

Governor Steve Sisolak
Supports marijuana taxes going toward state education….

Governor Steve Sisolak pushed ahead today with a plan to tap marijuana taxes as a partial solution to underfunded Nevada public education.  Sisolak told reporters that he and others made a promise to Nevada teachers and students that Nevada will no longer have some of the biggest class sizes in the country.

Sisolak said his plan is to divert the 10% tax on retail marijuana away from a rainy day fund and directly in to Nevada’s public schools.  Officials say that about $120 million dollars over the next two years will help shore up Nevada’s over-crowded classrooms. Sisolak said he is keeping his promise to teachers that they’ll get sizable pay raises as part of the deal.
