The Nevada Department of Taxation is asking for a loan of nearly $900,000 from a legislative account to fund startup costs for the implementation of the recreational marijuana law passed by voters in November.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the request comes from the Legislature’s Interim Finance Contingency Account and will be considered Tuesday by the state board of examiners, a three-member panel that includes Governor Brian Sandoval.
If approved, the request will go to the legislature’s Interim Finance Committee for review.
The panel is scheduled to meet January 26. The loan would fund four positions starting February 1st through the end of the fiscal year June 30.
