A day after Supreme Court ruled to uphold much of President Obama's 'Affordable Care Act,' we caught up with Governor Brian Sandoval and asked him about the implications for the Silver State.
He wasn't available for an interview Thursday but today he said his staff is still reviewing the ruling.
And while he wasn't sure of the implications, he said he is concerned about the effect it could have on the state's budget.
"I personally have been in opposition to the law because it is going to create a tremendous burden on our budget, it's going to perhaps require us to reduce spending on education which is something that I don't want to do. Education's a huge priority for me."
The governor said Nevada is prepared to meet all requirements upheld by the Supreme Court but is still undecided on what to do about an optional suggestion to expand the number of people covered by Medicaid.
The governor said that could cost the state millions endangering Nevada's economic recovery.
