State Could Send More Money to Clark County School District

It's been a long-standing complaint that tax payers in Clark County subsidize school districts in the rest of the state because the lion's share of Nevada's tax revenue is generated in Las Vegas. To remedy that, a state committee of lawmakers will recommend the legislature adopt a new funding formula that could send as much as $69 million more to CCSD. But if more money is sent to Clark County that means less for some rural counties. We'll talk with Eureka County Superintendent, Ben Zunino about what the cuts mean for his district, which could lose as much as 49 percent of state funding.
