The new speaker, already under fire for a raft of past comments and whose site says "Illegal means ILLEGAL," sent this email Thursday morning to his caucus. Subject: Amnesty "I am a licensed Nevada Contractor. The State of Nevada has an aggressive illegal contractor program, actively arresting and prosecuting illegal contractors. What would happen to legal contractors if all illegal contractors were suddenly granted "amnesty" and in effect allowed to be...
It's called: IMMIGRATION ACCOUNTABILITY EXECUTIVE ACTION Fact sheet attached.
After successful attorney general candidate's campaign manager, Robert Uithoven, asserted Adam Laxalt was the first statewide candidate in modern history to win while losing both urban counties, I wondered if that was true. So I had the nonpareil researchers in the Legislative Counsel Bureau's library check for me. And you know what? Uithoven was not far from right. I guess it depends how you define "modern." Here's what the research found: The LCB folks found two examples of statewide races in...
My previous post a few minutes ago was from the Reno chamber about its love for education despite the margin tax murder. As if on cue, the Las Vegas Metro Chamber just sent out one, too. It's 2003 all over again: (I HAVE UPDATED WITH ANNOTATIONS.) Dear Las Vegas Metro Chamber Member: The time has come to have some serious tax reform discussions. (Always, always, start with a joke!)After the recent defeat of the Margin Tax Initiative, we shared with you that the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of...
Here's what just went out -- I have helpfully annotated -- in a message echoing what other business and gaming folks have said, and what the governor has planned, which is reforms for money, or is it money for reforms? From: Chamber Government Relations [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Tuesday, November 18, 2014 10:20 AMTo:Subject: The Election is Over; Now the REAL Work Begins Dear Chamber Member: First of all, thank you for your membership. Your commitment of time and resources...
"I think Gov. Sandoval has a real good opportunity now after a great run as governor, perhaps to run for senator. So, you know, frankly I'll say this: I think Harry Reid may decide to retire. That's my prediction." – National Republican Senatorial Chairman Roger Wicker, 11/13/14 Harry Reid is dead, one in an occasional series: The sense of déjà vu is palpable. Republicans must need saliva-inhibitors because they are so excited to dethrone the most powerful Democrat in the state, perhaps in...
UPDATED, 11/15/14: Finally got an official statement from Gov. Brian Sandoval through his spokeswoman, Mari St. Martin. It's sort of a non-endorsement endorsement, but pretty obvious where he is: "The Governor is aware of Mark Lipparelli's interest, along with others, in filling the vacant Senate seat. Mr. Lipparelli is a longtime Las Vegas resident who has served the state with distinction as a member and chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. The Governor believes that the Clark...
So first Roll Call's Abby Livingston posts a story about Democratic comebacks that mentions defeated Rep. Steven Horsford. Only hours later, the man who vanquished Horsford, Assemblyman Cresent Hardy, began his re-election campaign even before he takes office. And that picture of Nancy Pelosi! It’s already happening. Nancy Pelosi and her Washington insiders are targeting my race for 2016. Instead of listening to the voice of the people, they are planning to do whatever it takes to...
It turns out the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance isn't so global. One week before the LVGEA hosts a "a robust and inclusive discussion" (touch me, feeeeel me) on education funding with the Clark County teachers union, two chambers (though, notably, not the Vegas one) and two legislative leaders, the lobbying arms of two critical special interests have sent stinging, not-so-inclusive letters to the head of the organization. In the pair of missives, which I have obtained, the Retail...
