Governor Sisolak statement on Senate Bill 543

Carson City, NV - May 21, 2019

Today, Governor Steve Sisolak released the following statement on Senate Bill 543, which would replace the decades-old Nevada Plan that currently funds the state’s public schools.

"I'd like to applaud the Committee Chair for introducing one of the most sweeping education reform bills Nevada has seen in over 50 years. Everyone can agree that we must take bold steps to improve our education system, and that must start with addressing a decades-old formula that no longer meets the needs of our state. In the coming days, I look forward to working with the legislature to review this bill, with the goal of ultimately taking an important step toward much-needed structural education reform."
