Congressman says Nevada suffers from lack of education funding

by NATASHA VITALE

Congressman Steven Horsford addressed the Joint Assembly today at noon. One of the topics he discussed was education funding for Nevada through the use of grants. He declared that Nevada does not receive its fair share of funding compared to other states, pointing out that Nevada ranks 49th in grant dollars received per capita.

Horsford also spoke about the effect of choices the Legislature makes and the effect they will have on Nevadans who are suffering economically. He ended his speech by saying that cooperation on legislation will have a positive impact for Nevada’s future.
