Nevada Lt. Gov. Kate Marshall was recently named co-chair of the Council of State Governments Fiscal Health subcommittee.

The panel is charged with exploring policies that support resilient state budgets and examining the fiscal status and operations of states. The goal is to ensure that state governments are financially prepared for unexpected crises such as the pandemic.

“As we not only recover but build back better from this pandemic, it will be important for state governments to identify and fix outdated systems, restore rainy day funds and address budget shortfalls,” Marshall said in a statement.

Prior to being sworn in as lieutenant governor in 2019, Marshall was elected Nevada’s State Treasurer in 2006 and re-elected in 2010.

Marshall and her husband, Elliott Parker, reside in Reno, Nevada, where she is a board member of the United Way of Northern Nevada; Parker is an economics professor at the University of Nevada, Reno.
