Nevada Committee Hearing for Bill #AB458 DELAYED until Thursday, April 4th at 4 p.m.
As we mentioned a few days ago, the Nevada Assembly Taxation Committee was set to hear bill #AB458 on Tuesday, April 2nd. This bill will REMOVE the 10% annual increase in dollars needed for waitlisted and new scholarships. The sponsor of the bill never showed up to present his bill and at the last minute, the Committee Chairwoman pulled the bill and said they will now hear the bill on Thursday, April 4th at 4 p.m.
Thank you to everyone who came out to Las Vegas and Carson City to testify against the bill. We ask that you please come out again on Thursday to make sure your voices are heard!
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO STOP THIS BAD BILL WHICH ENDS ANY ANNUAL INCREASE IN THE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.

We will have people there to meet you and give you stickers to wear.
