How does the two-thirds play out -- rank from most to least likely: Budget passes without 2/3 and with MBT; Dems get one or more Repub to pass with MBT and two-thirds; budget passes without MBT.

What does this portend, if anything? What surprised you?

And the paid sick leave compromise was really something to behold –...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? Most interesting thing you read or heard this week in Nevada politics? We are halfway through, so time for midterm grade. Please assign a grade and explain it to:   Sisolak Frierson Cannizzaro Some of my insiders pointed out that while it is halfway through the session, this arena is one where midterm grades may not mean much.

Anyone or anything...

What can we reform in government in light of recent happenings? Why are they happening? How can it be fixed? Can it be fixed?
