6:07 pm
it is public funds. troars lawyer for the parents are hoping the judge will stop it before it is implemented. >> the nevada constitution has very strict protections on funds that are allocated for public schools. there are obviously limited resources in nevada. >> reporter: the program would give around $5,000 per student to qualifying families who want to use the funds for private school or other educational options, including home schooling. the attorney general's office is defending this case. among other things, they're arguing the presumption is nevada laws are constitutional, as you just heard, and the challengers will have to proof they were harmed. >> they haven't met the standard for preliminary injunction. they haven't been able to show, first of all, i think their legal theories are somewhat extreme. >> reporter: well, you know, we don't know when the judge is going to make a decision, but we also know that the state is ready to go forward with this, and they plan to do that in february, unless they're stopped by the court.

6:12 pm
conditions are dark, wet or icy. well, that was a bad crash on monday. it happened along this stretch of pir amid highway just north of queen way. three cars were involved. six people ended up hospitalized, and the northbound lanes were shut down result. everyone involved did survive. is a divider wall needed on that stretch of road? i checked with ndot and she says unfortunately it turns out there is not enough room on the road to install a divider wall or barrier. she say as divider wall requires at least two photoof space to accommodate the base of the wall, so that will not work in this case. another option they use, sometimes are those rumble strips which make the loud noises to let drivers know if they're drifting off the road. they can't use rumble strips because they would create too much noise for surrounding neighbors in this case. the best hope is the improvement project which ndot says will streamline traffic and create a safer situation,
6:13 pm
mccarron down the road, but also at this spot we're talking a about. the project is already underway and ndot says when it is done, it should really help with traffic flows and congestion. let's hope that is the case. thanks to leslie for sending in that question. if you have any questions you would like to ask, send me an e- mail and just put ask joe in the subject line and i'll do my best to track down behaver answers you are looking for. shelby, over to you. >> thank you. happening now, thousands of people across the country are hoping to win in tonight's powerball drawing. news 4 is live at one of the closest locations in northern nevada where people can quo to get their lottery tickets. it has been pretty crowded out there all day long. >> reporter: hey, shelby. yes, i'm live at the gold ranch now and i'm actually standing ton california state line. people have been coming out here today in the hundreds to
