Following this evening’s State of the State address by Governor Sandoval, Lt. Governor Mark Hutchison made the following statement:

“Governor Sandoval made it clear tonight that education will continue to be Nevada’s top priority. I’m proud to see renewed commitments to funding full-day kindergarten in all schools, an increase in English Language Learner (ELL) funding, as well as efforts to improve education for Nevada’s poorest and most at-risk students among the many programs in the Governor’s budget.

Governor Sandoval demonstrated strong leadership in presenting a modernized, long-term funding mechanism for education which Nevada has been lacking for quite some time.

I’m also encouraged to hear that long overdue reforms for construction defect legislation, collective bargaining, and school choice will be meaningfully addressed.

It’s an honor to serve with Governor Sandoval as he announces investments in a new Nevada that will ensure future generations have the tools necessary to succeed.”
