(CARSON CITY, Nev.) -- Governor Brian Sandoval issued a statement on Friday discussing what would happen to the residents of Nevada if sequestration goes into effect.
Sandoval said, “Should sequestration go into effect, we must deal with the real world impacts of the cuts and guide Nevada through this period. Unlike elected officials in Washington, we must take swift action to mitigate the extensive consequences," he said.
"My Administration started planning for sequestration last summer, knowing we may need a contingency plan should it go into effect," he added. “We are continuing to plan for the effects of sequestration, but I know that Nevadans are resilient. I also know that even with sequestration looming over our country, Nevada will overcome and thrive because we will do what it takes to move our state forward.”
