Issues

To start the 2017 Nevada State Legislative session, Nevada Democrats introduced our Nevada Blueprint. The goal of the Blueprint, and the 2017 legislative session, was to fight for better education, to increase government accountability, to promote jobs in Nevada, and to protect our most vulnerable citizens, specifically our seniors and children.

We accomplished a great deal in 2017 and I was proud to be a part of it. You can read about some of the bills I sponsored and helped get passed into law here.

But the work has only just begun. As we move forward, Nevada’s schools still need our help, we need to continue to diversify our economy and bring jobs back to the state. We also need to protect our seniors and increase our commitment to mental health in Nevada.

These are just some of my priorities as we head toward the 2019 Nevada State Legislative session.

Supporting Education & Our Kids

  In 2017, I sponsored both AB 212 and AB 320, so we can help teachers move away from feeling forced to ‘teach to the test’ rather than doing what’s best for the education of our children. Also, to help with our teacher shortage, I’ve sponsored AB 351 to help teachers with their student loans.

Fighting for Homeowners

From expanding job training and mentorship programs, to fighting for homeowners who were hit hard by the PUC’s solar decision, I’m proud to be part of a number of pieces of legislation in the 2017 session  which not only promoted job creation across Nevada, but made sure those who invested in their homes and in the future of Nevada are treated fairly by the energy companies.

Protecting Our Seniors

Seniors are our the most vulnerable members of our community. That’s why I’ve fought to expand Medicaid, fight the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, protecting Medicare and Social Security, secure our public pensions and more.
