Vote Nevada Update 4/2/2023

Vote Nevada Supporters,

Our viewing of “The Young Vote” with special guest producer/director Diane Robinson was fabulous, and the film is just phenomenal.   If you would like to view the film, please respond to this message by April 7th.

We are heading into week 9 of the legislative session.  The next three deadlines are already driving the overall agenda.  Tuesday, April 4th, is the day budgets must start to close for the state agencies.  All bills must pass out of their first committee by Friday, April 14th.  And all bills must receive a vote on the floor of their first house by Tuesday, April 25th.  Any bill that misses one of these deadlines is technically dead.

Of course, any of these deadlines can be postponed and individual bills can be granted deadline exceptions; but these options will get harder to exercise the closer we get to the constitutionally required end of the session, which is June 5th.

You can see this week’s scheduled hearings for a wide range of bills and budgets here:

Tomorrow, April 3rd, the Carson City Democratic Men’s Committee is hosting Calen Evans, President of the Washoe Education Association, as their luncheon speaker.  Calen will be discussing education legislation and funding. You can participate on Zoom at 1:30 pm by emailing Rich Dunn for the link at richdunn as one word and then

On Wednesday, April 5th, at 8 am, Hispanics in Politics is hosting four Latina leaders for this month’s breakfast.  Ruth Garcia Anderson (North Las Vegas City Council), Lorena Portillo (our new Clark County Registrar of Voters), Ramona Esparza (Leadership Institute of Nevada), and Dr. Silvia Lazos (UNLV Law Professor). You can read more about the event here:
