On Budget & Economy: COVID: Additional $50 million to help small businesses

So far, we've provided $50 million to small businesses across Nevada. But we need to do more.

That's why tonight, I am announcing an additional $50 million in my budget for this program which is vital for small businesses. I'm asking the legislature, as one of their first items of business, to get this done.

On Budget & Economy: Launch State Infrastructure Bank to leverage outside capital

The budget includes $75 million for future capital improvement projects that will be used to launch the State Infrastructure Bank, so we can leverage outside capital to fund projects like rural broadband, renewable energy, and road improvements. I am calling on state agencies and local governments to fast-track billions of dollars of infrastructure projects that haven't started. The faster we move these projects the more Nevadans we put to work.

On Education: Dollars follow students, not districts nor schools

Two years ago, in the 2019 Legislative Session we began the process of modernizing Nevada's 53-year-old education funding formula. We took a significant step in the right direction with the creation of the Pupil-Centered Funding Plan. Education funding should be allocated to meet each student's learning needs. The dollars should follow the students, rather than being connected to districts or schools.

On Energy & Oil: We're poised to lead the world on clean energy storage

Nevada is already a leader in renewable energy, generating billions of dollars in investment and employing tens of thousands of our people. Now, we are perfectly poised to lead the world in energy storage. To reach these ends, I will work with the Legislature to pass a bold energy bill establishing our commitment to increased transmission, storage, and distribution of all forms of clean energy. Passing this bill will create good paying construction jobs & help in our fight against climate change.
