CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval will make a
prime-time televised speech to pitch his budget proposal as a showdown simmers with Democrats in the Legislature.
Sandoval will address the state at 6 p.m. Tuesday. It comes a day after the Economic Forum added more than $200 million in anticipated tax revenues for the coming two years. Sandoval said he
will add $274 million to education budgets.
But Democratic leaders in the Senate and Assembly say the additional money falls $800 million short of what is needed for education.
Sandoval has said he will veto any bill that contains and tax or fee increase. While Democrats control the Senate and Assembly, they lack the two-thirds majority needed to raise taxes or override a governor's veto.
