Gansert: No fee increases in Sandoval’s budget

Last week, Governor-elect Brian Sandoval told Face to Face host Jon Ralston that he considers a tax to be different from a fee. The admission prompted the typical hue and cry from conservatives who believe a fee increase is a hidden tax increase.

But today Sandoval’s incoming chief of staff put to rest the idea that Sandoval would include fee increases in his proposed budget.

“I don’t believe fee increases or taxes will be part of this budget,” Heidi Gansert said during a taping of To the Point. “I know they won’t.”

Gansert did reaffirm that the administration will be looking to suck revenue out of local coffers, most notably the Clark County School District.

“It’s important we get funds to education and there is quite a bit sitting in Clark County right now,” she said.
