On Friday, Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a bill that increases the pay raises of state workers from the 2 percent a year he had proposed to 3 percent.
Previous stories indicated the 2 percent raises would cost $100 million over the next two years, so the increase should add more than $50 million to the budget when compounding is included.
Now, how much the governor seek for those education savings accounts before throwing in the towel? Oh yes, $60 million, half of what was really needed to fund those who had already signed up. Couldn’t find the scratch for that.
