Governor Sandoval Withholds Information On State Budgets
Governor Sandoval Withholds Information On State Budgets

AIR DATE: December 18, 2012

When state agencies submit budget requests to the states, it's public information. State agencies also sometimes submit wish list items know as "items for special consideration." Governor Brian Sandoval says those requests don't count as part of an agencies budget and don't have to be made public. That's raised some big questions among lawmakers who have speculated the governor may have broken the law. We'll talk with Las Vegas Sun reporter David McGrath Schwartz who has reported on the story and Review Journal Columnist Steve Sebelius about what the move by the Sandoval administration means.

    Just further proof that nearly all politicians are con-men and crooks. When will they get the message that the people who elected them are tired of these ridiculous games?
