Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval outlined a $1.1 billion plan during this year’s State of the State address that would overhaul the state’s education system. Sandoval’s changes to education from K-12 to post-graduate is welcome news to many Nevadans. Some are even calling it his legacy project. But funding the plan is a tough pill to swallow for Nevada’s businessman. He proposes paying for some of his plan with new taxes on businesses.

The fee is the cornerstone of his education overhaul. Kyle Roerink is the Political Reporter with the Las Vegas Sun and has read through the governor’s tax plan.
