January 18, 2017

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt issued the following statement after District Court Judge Eric Johnson’s order concerning the Education Savings Account (ESA) program:

    “We are pleased that yet another District Court Judge agreed with our interpretation of the Nevada Supreme Court’s decision on Nevada’s pioneering Education Savings Account law. Following District Court Judge Wilson’s order last week, it remains clear that ESAs are a constitutional effort to enhance the education of all and that ESAs can be fully implemented once the program receives funding from the Legislature.”
