Ne­vada pro­gram would take hit from GOP bill

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - MORNING BRIEFING -

A Ne­vada man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­gram that helps Sil­ver State busi­nesses would take a fis­cal hit in the 2018 spend­ing bill passed by the House on Thurs­day.

House law­mak­ers re­duced fund­ing for the Man­u­fac­tur­ing Ex­ten­sion Part­ner­ship pro­gram from $130 mil­lion to $100 mil­lion in the “minibus” bill that funds nu­mer­ous de­part­ments and agen­cies.

An amend­ment co-spon­sored by

Rep. Jacky Rosen, D-nev., and Rep. Norma Tor­res, D-calif., which re­stored $5 mil­lion, to $105 mil­lion, passed on a 279-137 vote. The Se­nate has yet to take up its spend­ing bill, which con­tains the full $130 mil­lion.
