CARSON CITY (LVPR) — Back in November 2020, Governor Sisolak told state agencies to prepare for upcoming budget cuts of 12 percent (12%) for each of the next two fiscal years. In all, each state agency will be cut by 24 percent (24%) by 2022 and it is very possible these budget cuts could continue after 2022 where state agencies could see additional budget cuts of 12 percent (12%) for the following two fiscal years into 2024 where state agencies are cut to 48 percent (48%) by 2024.

With the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, will Nevada counties and cities follow similar budget cuts of 12 percent (12%) annually where counties such as Clark County, Nevada could see a reduction of force at current levels of over 9000 employees cut by 48 percent (48%) by 2024 where Clark County, Nevada has a workforce of just over 4500 employees?

Governor Sisolak's State of the State Address coming up on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 will give the community insight into the ongoing dwindling tax base where much of the state (as well as county and city) workforce could see drastic pay cuts in the coming weeks and months to where many state (as well as county and city) employees are pushed onto the unemployment lines with their fellow citizens.
