Listen
AIR DATE: February 24, 2010

The Nevada legislature will meet for a special session on February 23 to solve an $871,000 budget shortfall. The governor is asking for 10% for most state funded agencies including K-12 and Higher education. The budget hole equals about 20% of state spending for the next year and half. We talk with Democratic legislative leaders about what kind of deal will be struck to solve the problem, the likelihood of tax increases and how already decimated state agencies will deal with yet another round of cuts.

Guests include:
Barbara Buckley, Assembly Speaker and Bob Coffin, State Senator.
