Nevada Special Session Ends with Steep State Budget Cuts
The Nevada Legislature’s 31st special session came to an end Sunday after 12 legislative days of grinding progress on a focused agenda to close a $1.2 billion state budget gap.
During the budget focused special session, lawmakers passed four bills implementing a vast majority of budget changes.
Still ahead are a possible second session and further fiscal tightening.
These will come amid uncertainty over another possible round of federal assistance, a resurgent virus spread, and stagnant or worsening economic trends.
Gov. Steve Sisolak stated he would postpone calling a second legislative session due to concerns over a spike in COVID-19 cases.
