Despite objections, lawmakers cut funding to Western Nevada College - Record-Courier

Despite comments by more than a half dozen lawmakers the proposed university system budgets unfairly damage the community college system, the cuts in Gov. Brian Sandoval’s budget were approved by the money committees on Friday. Sen. Pete Goicoechea, R-Eureka, and Assemblywoman Robin Titus, R-Smith Valley, said they couldn’t support the funding plan for NSHE because of the cuts to the community colleges. “Clearly, anytime you’ve got a reduction of 15 or 16 percent to some community colleges, well, you might as well turn the lights off,” said Goicoechea. “I won’t be supporting it.”
