CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval's chief of staff says the governor will release agency funding "wish lists" sometime next week.

The development comes after some critics suggested the governor may be breaking the law by withholding the information.

At issue are so-called "items of special consideration," or agency wish lists that have historically been included by past administrations with the bulk of agency budget requests, set by law to be released by Oct. 15.

Sandoval maintains those special items aren't part of official agency requests, and on Wednesday he said wouldn't release them until he's considered the budget consequences.

But Gerald Gardner, Sandoval's chief of staff, said Thursday afternoon that the information will be released next week.

On Wednesday, the state Democratic Party called out the popular, first-term Republican governor for "potentially violating state law."
