UPDATE, NO. 2: In a party line vote, with Democrats standing in unison in support and Republicans together in opposition, the religious-protection amendment was passed this morning. Floor vote Monday. It's going to happen. UPDATE: As predicted below, the religious protection language is out, via the RJ's Sean Whaley. As early as today, a Senate Joint Resolution designed to repeal and replace the gay marriage ban in Nevada could reach a critical point, with Democrats confident they will have...
It's rare that the entire Nevada delegation, small though it may be, agrees on anything. It's highly unusual to see all six on one news release. But it's even more rare to see...five of six. But that's what happened today as a release with this headline came out today via Sen. Dean Heller's office: "Reid, Heller, Heck, Titus, Horsford seek to reduce Nevada's VA claim backlog." Where is Rep. Mark Amodei? It was especially puzzling because the five-member letter to Veterans Affairs officials...
State Democrats are building an opposition research file against Gov. Brian Sandoval, and based on a release today, they are signaling they are not afraid to use it early in the cycle. The fact that the party is accumulating information to use against the popular governor is not that surprising. But bereft of any likely candidate -- apres the attorney general, le deluge -- the unfurling of some of that research, and using an interesting issue on which to deploy it, is noteworthy. Thursday's...
The attorney general has secured an indictment against expelled Assemblyman Steven Brooks for possessing a firearm while being a drug user. The indictment, obtained through a Clark County grand jury, is associated with his first arrest, when he was found to have a .357 revolver and 41 rounds of ammunition. He was found to be "an unlawful user" of marijuana. He later was arrested on the day he was expelled in California, where he faces several charges. Brooks' friend, Las Vegas Couniclman Ricki...
In a new study of the state's buregoning Latino population, economist John Restrepo has compiled some fascinating data on how educated they are, where they live and how much they make. This is a valuable demographic document, and it is attached here.
When it came to vote on guns today, Nevada’s two senators each reversed previous positions, but in very different ways. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid gave an unusually passionate and emotional speech, perhaps unfettered by the Manchin-Toomey amendment’s inevitable defeat, to explain his support for the measure (he would later vote against it as a procedural move to reserve the right to bring it back.). And Sen. Dean Heller provided a grotesque statement to explain his flip-flop,...
Reversing a 1994 position, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, in a speech tinged with anger and passion, announced Wednesday he would vote for an assault weapons ban. UPDATED: Video embedded here, remarks below: Here are his remarks: Today the United States Senate will honor the memory of 20 first graders and six of their teachers who were killed last year in Newtown, Connecticut – as well as tens of thousands of others who are killed by guns each year – by voting on a number of measures...
Before Tuesday’s meeting began, Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak sat down with his colleague Tom Collins. Collins has been antagonistic toward Sisolak for months, excoriating him for taking on unions and sneering that Gov. Brian Sandoval is “more of a Democrat” than the chairman. I get the sense that Sisolak considers Collins a buffoonish but less-than-prickly thorn whose behavior has grown increasingly erratic. To say there is no love lost would be an understatement; there...
