With just four weeks left in the legislative session, the pace is picking up. We in the Assembly have all been very busy presenting our bills to Senate committees and vice versa.
I am delighted to report that Assembly Bill 385 (free park passes to 5th graders) received a unanimous vote of support in the Senate last week. I am looking forward to the Governor signing the bill sometime this week! Read about it here.
I am pleased to report that Assembly Bill 277, which seeks to protect the environment in and around our national conservation areas like Red Rock, Sloan Canyon, and Black Rock passed out of the Assembly last week with bipartisan support. I will be presenting it to the Senate Government Affairs Committee on Monday afternoon. You can read the bill here.
Yours in service,

It was great to have Asha Jones from the Urban League Young Professionals on the Assembly floor with me last week. She was in Carson City to talk to legislators about clean energy initiatives.
Great to meet with Rudy, Annette, and my constituent Cielo to talk about conservation and clean energy.
We remembered Detective Chad Parque at Thursday's Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony. As the brother of a police officer, I truly appreciate the sacrifices that law enforcement officers make every day to ensure our safety.
Thursday was Children's Mental Health Awareness Day at the Legislature. It was also a beautiful, sunny day!
I ran a 9 mile leg of the law enforcement memorial relay run (from Las Vegas to Carson City) in 2014. This photo was taken in Beatty, Nevada.
I ran a 10 mile leg of the law enforcement memorial relay run in 2016. This photo was taken in Amargosa Valley, Nevada.
