State to Joint Commission: You recommended accreditation of Rawson-Neal on one survey but not the other
After visiting the embattled Rawson-Neal psychiatric facility in May and June, the Joint Commission recommended accreditation for the troubled facility, according to a letter from state officials to the non-profit outfit. The missive, which I have obtained and is attached to this post, indicates that this week's preliminary denial was part of another type of survey -- part of a two-track process the hospital has been undergoing. One track arose out of the patient-dumping scandal; the other is a...
I said from the beginning that Dale Erquiaga, who has been a close adviser to secretaries of state and governors, was the favorite to become the next state superintendent as soon as he applied. Erquiaga, unlike the cashiered James Guthrie, would be sure to carry out Gov. Brian Sandoval's agenda. They go way back, and Erquiaga was a key cog in the first half of Gov. Sunny's first term. And now, reports the Sun's Paul Takahashi, Erquaiaga has made the finals. It's the governor's pick now. My...

A failed Assembly candidate (Tom Blanchard) and a Jon Bon Jovi lookalike already have declared they are running against Justin Jones. But the lack of a formidable foe hasn't stopped the state senator who won by a whisker in 2012 from trying to get anointed early in the cycle. As you can see from the invitation below, lobbyists from nearly every major special interest in Carson City have signed up to host an event for Jones, who won by 300 votes last cycle and is the No. 1 GOP legislative target...
Incredibly, four days after this post, not one Democrat has responded to my request for a position on the margins tax initiative, which will be on the 2014 ballot. So I have decided to start making what I will dub margin calls, asking on the phone what I cannot get through email. I will update as I get answers -- or don't -- and I will update the other post, too. UPDATED, 7/29/13: More from Justin Jones. UPDATED, 7/24/13: I attended a clean energy roundtable at the Springs Preserve and asked...
During a hearing Tuesday evening, Washoe County commissioners opened debate on a sales and property tax plan to fund schools that Gov. Brian Sandoval and the Gang of 63 were too chicken to act on themselves. Attached to this post is a memo from the district attorney's office that reveals points of a legislative attorney's opinion and lays out what the board can and can't do. The Legislative Counsel Bureau says the board can raise either tax or both and can put sunsets (ugh) on either or both....
Unlike Florida’s Stand Your Ground law and other similar state statutes pushed by Republicans, Nevada’s version was proposed by a Democratic speaker, endorsed by almost every Democrat and passed by a Democratically controlled Legislature. As Democrats who were there in 2011 try to distinguish it from Florida’s law and as that session’s majority leader, now-Rep. Steven Horsford, says states should reevaluate such statutes, a little history is in order. Florida, governed by Jeb Bush and with a...
On the day befroe the Washoe County Commission considers a sales tax for schools, one member has sent out a lengthy email raising questions. Marsha Berkbigler, who seemed on "Ralston Reports" to be leaning toward the tax, said in the email (posted below) that elements of the legislative bill cause her "grave concern." But I still get the sense she wants to vote for it, but is upset (and rightly so) that the governor and Gang of 63 have set up this ridiculous scheme where they don't have a tax...
