Nevada Governor Teased

Sponsored by:

An anonymous legislator has asked for a bill to change Nevada´s name to East California and change the state song to “The Tax Man” – teasing Nevada Governor Guinn about his one billion-dollar tax proposal.

The name change was on a list of bill draft requests from individual lawmakers. While many proposals name the legislator who requested the draft, it´s not required. Guinn didn´t seem amused. Greg Bortolin, the Republican governor´s press secretary, says, “In these economic hard times, it´s tragic that we´re wasting money on things like this.” Bortolin also says “it´s cowardice for someone not to come forward and take credit for this.” Besides the play on the Beatles´ “Taxman” song, the bill also changes the state animal from the desert bighorn sheep to a rhino.
