ELKO, Nev. (AP) - Republican Assembly Minority Leader Pete
Goicoechea says he doubts all sunsetting taxes that were extended
by the 2011 Legislature will make it through the 2013 session.
His comments came after GOP Gov. Brian Sandoval last week
announced he will extend sunset taxes to avoid further cuts to
education and other vital state services in his upcoming budget
Goicoechea, who is running for the state Senate, says he doesn't
believe all legislators will give blanket approval to extending
taxes that originally were set to expire June 30, 2011.
But he told the Elko Daily Free Press (http://bit.ly/FPxgP5 )
that he sees the need for some of the sunset taxes to continue to
balance the budget.
The 2009 Legislature voted for the sunset taxes because of the
state's budget crunch.
