Laxalt rails against California regs in bid for NV governor
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Attorney General Adam Laxalt is urging fellow Republicans in Reno to rally around his gubernatorial campaign as the best way to fend off what he described as overzealous, California-style regulations that would undermine Nevada’s conservative principles and economic growth
Laxalt took questions from about a dozen of the 50 people who attended a hotel-casino luncheon Thursday sponsored by the Republican Men’s Club of Northern Nevada.
Among other things, he said he opposes sanctuary cities, co-ed bathrooms for transgender students and any attempt to erode legal gun rights.
He said he wants to repeal the state commerce tax on businesses GOP Gov. Brian Sandoval pushed through the legislature in 2015. He said he hasn’t decided how to offset the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue but pledged there would be no cuts in overall education spending.
