No Solyndra jokes allowed. No NV-Energy-owns-the governor-jokes allowed. On Thursday morning at 10:30, in front of the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Gov. Brian Sandoval will be together to hype clean energy. The frenemies will be there, as you can see below, on behalf of the Clean Energy Project to talk about all of the wonderful investment in Nevada. Somebody take a picture. No 2016 announcements expected.
As the parade of 2016 hopefuls comes to Las Vegas next week for a Republican Jewish Coalition meeting, former UN Ambassador John Bolton will appear at two events for local candidates -- one for attorney general hopeful Adam Laxalt and one for congressional candidate Niger Innis. Bolton actually was on both invitations, but Innis' campaign apparently did not have the authority to have his name on there and had to produce a new invitation. (Innis' campaign claims the original was "just a mock-up...
They came. They talked. They promised. And, like whispers through the mists of history, Jim Bilbray and Dina Titus could be heard haunting the UNLV ballroom, admonishing the dozens of guests to hold firm, to secure the South's fair share. For those of us who have watched this for decades, like a talky play with a tiresome script and disappointing ending, the spectacle of hundreds of valley leaders meeting to talk about “priorities” for Session ’15 seemed all too familiar. Then-Regent Bilbray,...
Here's a picture from an event I did about 20 years ago for Reno PBS called "A Gathering of Gamblers." From left, standing: Don Carano, Phil Satre, moi, John Ascuaga, Jackie Gaughan, Bill Boyd. Sitting: Warren Nelson, Claudine Williams.
State Sen. Tick Segerblom, who is not on the ballot in 2014, is having a fundraiser next week sponsored by many who want to profit from his medical pot dispensary law and who can be a "Space Cowboy" by giving $5,000. I kid you not. Is there anyone in the state not trying to profit from The Great Weed Rush of 2014?
In an amazingly flattering profile in El Tiempo Las Vegas, the governor who once supported Arizona's controversial immigration law is all but lionized as a Hispanic deity. He brags about getting funding for students who don't speak English well -- and promises to get more. He boasts of supporting drivers privilege cards for undocumented Nevadans -- it was not controversial. And he even crows about expanding Medicaid -- luckily, he has no serious primary opponent. This is the part, though, that...
In a new paper, a law professor and his son, a Democratic activist, raise questions about the age-old tug o' war between the Legislature and the regents over who runs higher ed. The paper (attached here) by Tom and Justin McAffee raises questions about the governance of the community colleges, not explicitly laid out in the Constitution, and about conflicts between the attorney general and the Legislative Counsel Bureau, which have occurred in the past and often have to be resolved in court....
The letter below has gone out to all prospective tenants in a new mall being built next to the Red Rock resort. This is ruthless.
During the 2013 Legislature, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway presented a 60-page document to lawmakers. The goal was simple: Maintain an exemption from a Live Entertainment Tax as Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick sought to close loopholes. The message was dire: The tax will hit the fans, who will be upset, and the race will be jeopardized. The humanity! The bill died. The race was saved. The fans came back last weekend. I thought of all this as lawmakers and Sen. Dean Heller began tweeting pictures of...
