Nevada’s 82nd Legislative Session: Week 4

Marcos Lopez

It was a snowy week in Carson City, but there was still plenty happening in the state legislature. Nevada Policy’s Marcos Lopez gives an inside scoop of what happened this week in Nevada’s 82nd Legislative Session:

  • Why a small group of legislators opened the legislative session on the floor on Monday but quickly adjourned;
  • How the first bill that Governor Lombardo signed into law will benefit charter schools;
  • Why we’re in support of a street vendors bill and how it will help these small businesses;
  • Which bill would give unions the information they need in order to be able to pester non-union members and get them to join; and
  • What two healthcare bills got hearings this week, and which bill we’re strongly opposing.
