Here’s one to watch: The Legislature, now controlled by Democrats, has a chance to override Gob. Jim Gibbons’ 2007 veto of a Senate Bill (SB146) that would have enabled small counties to boost their property taxes to help pay for new juvenile detention facilities.
It may be a perfect time for the Democrats to show their willingness to work with rural counties. It will also provide an interesting barometer for rural Republican legislators, whose constituents need the new juvenile detention centers. Will need trump politics?
