WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Endgame telescope: Name three bills you can guarantee will be part of the endgame? Name a bill that will be dead by Tuesday but will be revived in an amendment or an emergency measure? 3. Name three legislators for whom the last six weeks will be make or break and why. Interesting endgame telescope views, with much commonality (ESAs, PhRMA, criminal justice reform, more). Still not sure is ESAs are hill to...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. In the wake of the committee deadline, what was the most significant development? Any interesting bills live or die? Any other thoughts? 3. Compare the committee chairs this session and those in 2015. You don't have to do every one, but any striking contrasts? Seems as if my insiders generally agreed with me on how the Aaron Ford-Jason Frierson duo handled the deadline and that they are starting...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Can you discern the agendas of the major special interests this cycle? What are they? Gaming? Labor? Trial lawyers? Business? Anyone else? List what you think the top priorities really are, not just what the bills are that are in. Add any industries or interests you want, too. 3. Energy may be the most complex issue in the Legislature. Wednesday's hearing showed how divergent some interests are, including...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. It's time for the midterm legislative report card: Who has been the biggest surprise? Biggest disappointment? Governor's midterm rating Best bill Worst bill Give your own award 3. Big news of the week was the Raiders vote. How significant is this in the history of Nevada? And do you see any impediments to it coming to fruition now? Also: What is Sheldon thinking? Point of personal privilege: I...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Is the Nevada Resort Association as effective as it once was? Do the gamers still rule, or are other players catching up? 3. Could Scott Hammond beat Ruben Kihuen? 4. Most to least likely, with explanations: Bob Beers loses///Dean Heller votes for an ACA repeal///Adam Laxalt becomes governor////Brian Sandoval vetoes more than 10 bills Fascinating comments about the NRA’s power, some very thoughtful and...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Think of a legislator from the past you greatly admired. Who was it? Now: Does anyone in 2017 remind you of that person? 3. We are a third of the way through. Predict what will be in the closing deal: ESAs, trial lawyer package, energy reform, pay raises for public employees, anything else? 4. Play political consultant to Adam Laxalt, Dean Heller or any other Republican statewide candidate: How would you...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. After four weeks, is it really any different than past sessions? Slow and boring to the naked eye? Or is there something more going on? 3. It's a quarter of the way through. Early, early awards for Best Committee Chair, Rising Star and Best Bill. Any other wards you wish to give out? Lots of love from The Weekly Insiders for Julia Ratti – she is super-smart and analytical, so look out if she starts to...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. It's almost three weeks old -- any new thoughts on the Legislature? leaders? Non-leaders? Up and comers? Disappointments? Bills/issues to watch? Is it really THIS boring? Anything percolating? 3. Any long-term fallout from: Red Rock vote Heller and town halls/liberal group pounding Sessions coming for pot Lots of early kudos for the freshman class, especially Cancela, Tolles, Brooks and Yeager. But I am much more...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Your take on the Laxalt/Burnett story? Will there be fallout? Thoughts in general? 2. After two weeks of Session '17, what are your thoughts? Too early? Anything shaping up already? leadership -- yes or no? Forgot to include Smartest/Dumbest Moves in the questions this week (one person remembered anyhow!) So I win dumbest move by a landslide with my addled memory. Good stuff and smart viewpoints on both of the main questions. To wit: ►Succinct, brutal...
WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week? 2. Thoughts on Week One of the Legislature? Anything worth seeing as a harbinger? 3. Most to least likely Aaron Ford is on a ballot in 2018 Michael Roberson is on a ballot in 2018 Kate Marshall is on a ballot in 2018 Danny Tarkanian is on a ballot in 2018 Some great stuff from my insiders, esepcially on Week One, showing (again) why this feature is such a good idea. They KNOW what's happening. Near-unanimous bad...
