Proposed $25 million cut to colleges would result in layoffs, reduced student services, higher education system says - Riley Snyder, Nevada Independent

Legislative Republicans and Democrats released two competing plans late Thursday outlining their priorities for restoring health care, K-12 education and other line items out of Gov. Steve’s Sisolak’s proposed $1.2 billion in budget cuts. Though the plans differ in what categories and how many dollars can be restored, both rely on a major source of new funding to meet their goal — an additional $25 million cut to the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE).
