Republican state legislators in Nevada are eager to join the fight against the bloated pay and benefits of government employees, but Gov. Brian Sandoval wants to tackle other priorities first, the Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday.

andoval, bloated, government, paySandoval, a Republican, told the newspaper he’s putting his focus on other issues for the moment, including economic development, education reform and not raising taxes while balancing the budget. Still, he’s open to jumping into the fight against unions that’s raging in Wisconsin and other states.

“In regard to collective bargaining, there may be a bill,” Sandoval told the newspaper. “I’ve not seen that bill. I’m watching the progress of such bills and waiting to see if they arrive here at the Capitol.”

Sandoval supporters agree with his decision not to take on the collective bargaining issue now in a Legislature controlled by Democrats. Legislative Republicans plan to bring up collective bargaining when they negotiate with the Democrats on the upcoming state budget.

During his State of the State address, Sandoval said he support changes in collective bargaining to “ensure employee compensation does not hamper government performance.”
