He begins his weekday program,Ralston Live, Monday, March 2 at 5:30 p.m. on Nevada’s two PBS member stations, Vegas PBS and KNPB in Reno. Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval is scheduled to be the first guest of the program. The program will repeat...
Here's what's happening on two GOP bills driving Democrats batty: ►SB 119: The bill to allow school bonds to automatically roll over and remove prevailing wage requirements from school construction is in limbo in the Assembly after passing the Senate on a party-line vote. Why? Here's what sources tell me: Democrats are hung up on the prevailing wage provisions, as they were in the Senate. But the real problem is that some of the Republicans consider the automatic bond rollover a tax increase...
The Retailers Association of Nevada plans to release results of focus groups today that show voters don't think a lot of tax reform plans but back education reform and gun background checks. And this: Although the "sunset taxes" were a topic of many election campaigns, no participants could identify those taxes and less than half supported continuing them. Participants were very supportive to various proposals to reform construction defects legislation and most supported companies such as Uber...
The Nevada Republican Party, a continuing cavalcade of cuckoo's nests, has sent out a long missive attacking the Establishemnt Republicans, the governor and lawmakers who rightly destroyed state Treasurer Dan Schwartz's idiotic "alternative budget" on Thursday. Remember, it was the state GOP that originally sent out the three-page news release masquerading as a real budget, complete with illegal and kooky components and a direct attack on the titular head of the party, Gov. Brian Sandoval....
Tony Dane, the GOP operative under investigation by police in a political corruption probe, has informed the secretary of state that he does not have to disclose anything more than he already has in recall campaigns. The letter to the SOS, attached here, is from Dane's attorney, David Otto, the same lawyer who filed this fantastical document. In the missive, Otto cites Citizen Outhouse's recent Supreme Court victory that allowed the group to keep donors secret, a case that may not be applicable...
Attorney General Adam Laxalt said Thursday that he opposes Gov. Brian Sandoval's plan to raise taxes to fund education with a graduated business license fee. Laxalt, who was not pressed on his knowledge of the $438 million plan or the state budget, made the comments on a Reno radio program, putting him at odds with the man who helped elect him for the second time since he was elected. Laxalt irked Sandoval in January by going rogue on the federal immigration suit. My guess is this will do a...
In a cliche-ridden missive to state lawmakers, the editor of the state's largest and least complete newspaper urges the Gang of 63 to "seize the oppportunity before you" and pass what he wants passed. The letter, which you can see below, contains these gems from Editor Michael Hengel: ►"Nevada is at a historic crossroads." ►"It will take a lot more than new money" to boost education. ►"Nevadans won't be able to bear the burden of additional taxes without the enactment of money-saving government...
This legal document was posted by Citizen Outhouse boss Chuck Muth, who clearly has a relationship with activist Rob Lauer, whose home was searched as part of an ongoing political corruption probe by Metro police. The filing, a protest of that search warrant served 10 days ago on Lauer, was linked by AP scribe Riley Snyder this morning, which is how it came to my attention. I am not sure when I read a document that made me chortle so often and made my jaw sore from hitting my desk. It is insane...
Michele Fiore has a radio show. This, in and of itself, is not very interesting. If you listen to talk-radio, you realize: Anyone can have a radio show. But on her program this weekend, Assemblywoman Fiore was joined by three other members of the Ass. GOP Caucus -- so almost one-sixth of that group -- and they engaged in the kind of dialogue that is less coherent than the Dennis Hopper clip from "Apocalypse Now" that I have attached at the end of the transcript below. As the four prattled on,...
In a devastating setback for proponents of a stadium funded partially with public money, Judge Jerry Wiese ruled Friday that the measure can go on the June ballot. In so doing, Wiese parsed the meaning of the constitutional definitions the city had relied on, shredded the government's arguments and may have created a real mayor's race as the incumbent, Carolyn Goodman, is a stadium backer and Councilman Stavros Anthony is a foe. Wiese essentially said that because the provision on which...
