$3M Study of Reno-Area Vets Nursing Home Proposed

Posted: Updated:

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada lawmakers are being asked to approve money to build a northern Nevada nursing home for veterans, veterans' spouses and parents whose children have died in combat.

Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval is proposing a $3 million feasibility and design study for a veterans nursing facility in the Reno-Sparks area.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (http://on.rgj.com/10U9uza ) that if the Legislature approves the plan and the state builds the project, Nevada taxpayers would pick up one-third of the cost and the federal Veterans Administration would pay the rest.

The cost of the project has not been determined.

Construction on the proposed 90-bed facility could begin as early as 2017.
