Nevada’s 82nd Legislative Session: Week 6

Marcos Lopez

As the crossover deadline rapidly approaches, state legislators are busy working on bills that could dramatically affect our future. Nevada Policy’s Marcos Lopez sums up the most important bills in the legislature this week.  

  • What school choice bill might not even get a hearing this session, and what misinformation the teachers’ unions are spreading about it;
  • The difference between a pro-business stance and a free market stance, and how we believe we can support business while still having a free market;
  • What prevailing wage is and why it is costing taxpayers so much money and hurting Nevada overall; and
  • Why we’re keeping an eye on a bill that has the potential to wreak havoc on our state budget.
