Write Your Legislator
As a concerned citizen of Nevada, I am writing to urge you to show restraint on new recurring spending programs that could put strain on our state's budget during economic downturns. While I understand the importance of investing in our state's future, it is equally important to exercise fiscal responsibility and plan for unforeseen circumstances.
Nevada has recently experienced a budget surplus, which is a testament to our state's economic resilience and the hard work of our businesses and citizens. However, we cannot always count on such surpluses, and must plan for times when our state's revenue may decrease due to economic downturns or other unforeseen events.
As you consider new spending programs and initiatives, I urge you to carefully evaluate their long-term impact on our state's budget and economy. Programs that require recurring funding may put a strain on our state's budget during lean times, leading to cuts in essential services or increases in taxes that would harm our state's economy and citizens.
Instead, I urge you to prioritize responsible fiscal policy by investing in our rainy day funds and paying down debt. By doing so, we can better prepare for future economic challenges and ensure our state's long-term financial stability.
Thank you for your attention to this important issue, and for your service to our state.
