WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Trump’s first week 3. Any fallout from Sandoval taking on Trump on wall and Medicaid? Interesting split among the insiders on the Michael Roberson/ESAs line in the sand. And interesting how a few insiders think Roberson was smart to bring Dan Muth in, but others feel the same way that I do about the dangers of allowing Chuck Burdish inside his tent. And lots more interesting stuff: ►Ha: Energy choice will be...

A month after the election, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, riding one of his longtime hobbyhorses, wrote to Assembly Speaker-in-Waiting Jason Frierson, asking him to expound on his experiences with unfunded mandates to the states from the federal government. I don't think Frierson gave him the answer he was looking for. In a forceful, detailed letter, Frierson went well beyond what Chaffetz had asked and listed "five critical federal issues that are cause for grave concern...

One week after Attorney General Adam Laxalt declared a new background checks law unenforceable, prominent leaders of the campaign to pass the initiative urged Gov. Brian Sandoval to "to urge the speedy and efficient implementation" of the statute. Elaine Wynn and Jan Jones Blackhurst, co-chairs of the background checks campaign, also wrote to Laxalt, saying they are "are concerned that you have either overlooked or not explored solutions to implementing this law and have instead chosen simply...
How Harry Reid, Brian Sandoval, a determined coalition and, yes, Cliven Bundy helped make Gold Butte happen
A year and a half ago, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid persuaded President Obama to set aside 700,000 acres of Nevada land as a national monument. The Basin and Range designation culminated a long lobbying effort by Reid, bolstered by outside groups and lamented by GOP delegation members. Only Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval was muted, tut-tutting about the lack of “a more collaborative process when making such an important designation.” Back then, I wondered, along with others, could Reid...
