The author talks about the legislative debate on education funding in Nevada. He notes that the special session of the legislature went into overtime when Senate Majority Leader Bill Raggio and Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley were accused by Senate Minority Leader Stephen Horsford for making an agreement of cutting the amount of money designated for textbooks, instead of laying off unimportant school administrators. Due to this, the Citizen Outreach filed a public records request, asking for copies of the superintendents' employment contracts in Nevada.
