Why "The T Word" Can No Longer Be Avoided

Today, we are reminded again of why why taxes are becoming a big issue this year. And both High Jackson & Bob Fulkerson made that clear on "The Agenda" today.

As we've discussed before, this is no longer an issue that can be ignored. Teachers are now being laid off, and programs at CCSD and higher Ed are being cut or eliminated entirely. And as we've discussed before, Nevada's economy will never reach its full potential if we never develop the public infrastructure needed to bring lasting jobs into this state.

This is really no laughing matter. And this is why the corporate margin tax initiative may really be the right issue coming to the right place at the right time. As our schools continue to fall apart, our teachers are not allowed to do their job, and our kids fail to receive all the opportunities that they deserve, we can no longer afford to be complacent. Rather, we the people must start getting proactive.

Hopefully, we'll see that happen this year as this initiative picks up steam.
