SAGE Commission: Employee Costs Exorbitant

Nevada Taxpayers could save more than a half-billion over the next five years by adjusting retirement and benefit costs closer to those of the private sector, according to a bi-partisan efficiency panel appointed by Governor Jim Gibbons..

The Nevada Spending and Government Efficiency Commission said in a new report that the salaries paid to state workers are similar to equivalent positions in the private sector. Commission Chairman Bruce James said, however, that the insurance and retirement benefits offered to state employees “exceeded the Nevada private sector and most other states by a wide margin.”
