The author reflects on the budget proposal of Republican Governor Jim Gibbons of Nevada. Such proposal includes spending on new programs, such as the Nevada National Guard Youth Challenge and the Nevada Four Core Public Safety Radio Network. The author argues that Gibbons, who called for spending cuts during his representative years, did not promote such conviction at his present position.
