SAGE Commission Final Report

The SAGE commission’s final report can be found here.

The commission is one that Gibbons created to find ways to make Nevada government more efficient. It was a political attack group aligned with the Nevada Republican party, casinos mainly from Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.

To make things more efficient, they sought to take away benefits from state employees, especially retirees. Unfortunately they were successful.

Reducing benefits like ordering or threatening layoffs and budget cuts is easy. It requires little thought  just political and mean spirited parochialism like the “No More Taxes” mantra their boss Gibbons likes to say all the time.

Of course Gibbons is thrilled with their work and praised them in their efforts. However most state employees, their families and friends won’t find them as endearing. They will remember the political attacks on them during the past two years and vote in November.
