LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – On Feb. 5, Strong Public Schools Nevada and other education leaders said that they filed a constitutional challenge against Senate Bill 1 (SB1), which provides up to $380 million in taxpayer funds to construct a baseball stadium.

In a media release, the group alleged that SB1 is “riddled with constitutional violations” and said its goal is “to ensure public funds are not used for a misguided stadium project.”

“We believe SB1 violates five sections of the State Constitution and those violations should lead to the bill’s invalidation,” the release added.

The group says this litigation continues its work to “support public education and oppose the diversion of public money for private or corporate use.” Strong Public Schools Nevada stated that it is “in solidarity with our sister committee, Schools Over Stadiums, which is pursuing a referendum to ensure hundreds of millions in public money goes to essential services like public education.”
