Nevada’s 82nd Legislative Session: Week 5

Marcos Lopez

Things are starting to get exciting in the Nevada Legislature as the first set of deadlines rapidly approaches. Nevada Policy’s Marcos Lopez sums up the most important bills heard in the legislature this week.

  • How one bill is seeking to finance housing for people with mental illnesses in Nevada, and what we proposed happens instead;
  • Which bipartisan bill would open up opportunities for trades training in public school, and what we’re encouraging lawmakers to address in addition to this bill;
  • Why the unions are targeting higher education in response to a movement spreading across the country; and
  • Why almost every industry and advocacy group testified in opposition to a green bill of rights being proposed as a constitutional amendment.
