Assembly District 38 representative Robin Titus, the deputy minority whip, said the Legislature must get Nevada’s economy back on track, without resorting to tax increases or cuts to Medicaid and education.
In a statement released Friday, Titus, whose district includes most of Lyon County and Churchill County, said the state must address its fiscal challenges in a responsible manner to keep residents safe and at work.
“Since the start of Nevada’s 31st Special Session, Assembly Republicans have sought to work with Democrats on commonsense solutions to get our economy back on track,” Titus said. “From preventing painful cuts to Medicaid and education to finding additional savings, Assembly Republicans have been ready to mitigate the impact of the shutdown on critical areas in our state.”
Titus acknowledged that the state, economy, and citizens are facing challenging times.
“We need to keep Nevada safe, open and back to work so our economy can get moving again to avoid economic devastation,” she said. “That is why it is so important for us to address our fiscal challenges in a responsible manner without raising taxes that will compound the problem for already struggling businesses and Nevada families.”
“Through shared responsibility, we can save our economy and create jobs for Nevadans,” Titus added. “As we move forward, we will continue to deliver on our promise to restore Nevada to greatness.”
