CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A legislative subcommittee that will
monitor how stimulus money the state gets is spent has set a date
for its first meeting.
The 12-member subcommittee plans to meet Aug. 3 in Carson City. The panel is a subcommittee of the Interim Finance Committee.
Subcommittee chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Smith, D-Sparks, says the goal is to make sure Nevada's funding from the recovery package is spent to help the state's economy recover and create jobs.
On the agenda for the first meeting is an examination of stimulus funds received by the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation and the Department of Education.
The Aug. 3 meeting also will be transmitted by videoconference to the Grant Sawyer State Office Building in Las Vegas.
