As part of our ongoing series, I have a look at some more bills coming up in our legislature.
SB97- At first glance I like this bill. It limits school administrator salaries to one and a half times the salary of the highest paid principal in the school district. I am all for getting the money out of the hands of the pencil pushers and the talking heads and into the hands of the people who shape our kids futures. Contrary to the belief of many liberals, we conservatives care deeply about the future of our kid’s educations. We just have the vision to see that many of our education funding problems can be solved without raising taxes.
SB96-This bill has about a snowball’s chance of passing, but I like it. It is a pretty complicated bill and I’m not sure if I understand all the wording, but I’ll give you what I get. It would reduce the amount of taxes we pay when we purchase a vehicle by half. It also streamlines the process for getting that money to our schools, so much less is spent on bureaucratic BS and more is spent on the schools. A tax cut and a spending cut rolled into one. Someone pinch me. I must be having some kind of a limited government wet dream.
AB93- This bill would exempt spouses of Nevada National Guard members killed on active duty from certain taxes. Anything we can do for the families who have sacrificed so much has my stamp of approval on it. I am also extremely happy to see so much bi-partisan support for this bill.
AB95- They should call this one the Ray Nagin bill. It would prevent government officials from confiscating lawfully possesed firearms in a state of emergency. This should be a no brainer. If all hell breaks loose, why should criminals be the only ones left with guns?
As always, there are a bunch more bills I haven’t read through yet. I am going cross eyed and starting to drool on myself (more than normal), so they will have to wait for another day. I do want to give an honorable mention to Senator Bob Beers. Pretty much everything that cuts or limits taxes or spending has Senator Beers’ name on it. Keep up the good work Bob!
