Still to Come

Lawmakers will be heading back into the committee process over the next few weeks. They have until May 19th to hold hearings and pass those 419 pieces of legislation to the floor of the second house. The process has proven to be long and somewhat arduous, with committees holding two, three, sometimes four-hour hearings on specific bills. However, this is the second time lawmakers will be reviewing the legislation, which in many cases have already had the kinks worked out, so the process may be smoother.

Also ahead, lawmakers will receive their final revenue projections for the next biennium. On Monday, the economic forum report will dictate how much money lawmakers will have to set the budget for fiscal years 2018 and 2019. Lawmakers are already expecting a positive forecast, with revenues continuing to climb. However, a recent analysis by news outlets such as the Nevada Independent shows that lawmaker’s are considering bills that would increase state spending beyond the sunniest of projections. It will be interesting to see how the projections affect budget negotiations in the coming weeks
