As Congress prepared to vote on a bill to increase taxes on Nevada middle-class families, Republican gubernatorial candidate Attorney General Adam Laxalt remained silent. The Democratic Governors Association called on Laxalt to announce his position on the bill.

According to a nonpartisan analysis, families earning less than $75,000 would see their taxes increase under this bill by 2027, while families earning millions of dollars annually would receive large tax breaks.

“Nevadans deserve a governor who will put Nevada first, but Adam Laxalt refuses to take a stand on this critical bill that will raise taxes on middle-class Nevadans and blow up the national debt by $2 trillion,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold.  “It’s time for Adam Laxalt to say where he stands on the Congressional GOP tax bill. By refusing to speak out against this tax plan, Laxalt has made clear where his priorities really lie.”
