Republican Legislators are still sticking by Gov. Brian Sandoval and his pledge of no new taxes in the 2011-13 budget. But some in the Assembly are saying they might extend the emergency tax increases passed in 2009 for another two years. But it would come at a high price. Republicans say they want stronger measures on public employee benefits and bargaining rights as well as reforms on education, construction defect lawsuits and infrastructure contracts. So is this a serious offer? And can Democrats accept it?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
