Kenny Guinn on Jobs

Republican NV Governor


Privatized state worker’s comp & insurance

We were the first state in the country to privatize our state’s worker’s compensation program, removing more than a thousand positions from the state payroll and a $2.2 billion liability from the state’s ledger. And in the future, we will save over $3 million more, every year, by self-insuring.

We maintained a hiring freeze for the past two years, streamlining government and leaving more than 1,500 positions unfilled or eliminated. We also reformed our state’s group health insurance plan.
