'Nevada’s legislature enacted the most sweeping voucher legislation in the US, but Nevada still has a Republican governor who wants to keep vouchers alive. The state courts have affirmed its constitutionality, although last September the Supreme Court of Nevada struck down the funding portion of the voucher program. Meanwhile, the state continues to send out applications for “education savings accounts” as though the latest ruling from the highest court never happened. What is odd about the ruling by the Nevada Supreme Court is that the state constitution of Nevada has clear, explicit prohibitions against spending public money on sectarian (religious) schools:What part of this does the Nevada legislature and voucher advocates not understand? The ACLU of Nevada is challenging the state for continuing to invite applicants for a program that has been enjoined by the state Supreme Court.'
