RENO. Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) - Dr. Heath Morrison provided a statement regarding Gov. Brian Sandoval’s announcement that he will not seek further reductions from the education budget.
“I appreciate Gov. Sandoval’s continuing commitment to education and improving results for all Nevada students. We are exceptionally grateful for his recommendation to extend the sunsetting taxes and to stabilize education funding without imposing further reductions. In a time of great fiscal challenge, I applaud his courageous decision to hold the line on budget cuts for education.
Thousands of students across the state -- and right here in Washoe County -- are relying on lawmakers and on school district leadership to make the right decisions for their futures and for the future of our state. We consider it a privilege to be charged with this responsibility.
I look forward to working with the governor and all of our legislators to find solutions to our challenges, and to achieving our goal of “Every Child, by Name and Face, to Graduation.”
