The Interim Finance Committee met today to discuss Governor Sisolak’s plan to cover the $812 million deficit in the state’s budget. It includes about $88 million in cuts to state agencies and one- time appropriations. More details will be heard about the plan at the next IFC meeting that is scheduled for June 25th. The initial plan was approved along party lines with all Republicans voting nay. There was a long period of public comment with most people concerned about state agency cuts and anticipated furloughs.
