Governor Sandoval wants to help low-income children get a better education by giving tax subsidies to companies who feel the same way. The governor's plan is to have businesses that give a donation to a special state scholarship, to be able to deduct that from their business tax. The scholarship would be tapped at 5 million dollars. But school boards and the teacher's union aren't supporting this idea. The Nevada State Education Association's Lynne Warne will share her thoughts on why.
