I hope everybody had a wonderful Mother's Day! There is no doubt that I would not be where I am today without all of the love, encouragement, and support from my mother over the years. I love you Mom!
The highlight of my week took place on Friday. Governor Sandoval signed my first bill, Assembly Bill 385, which provides for free state park passes for every 5th grader in our state (and anybody else in the car). The bill signing took place outside, at Mormon Station Park in Genoa, Nevada. It was a beautiful northern Nevada day and a beautiful bill signing, complete with three classes of elementary students. You can view photos below and read about it here:
Yours in service,
PS: Thank you to all who came to my final coffee with constituents. We had a great conversation about teaching, veterans, and HOAs, among other topics. I am not sure if I will be able to make it back to Las Vegas again before the end of the session, but I plan to continue periodic coffees even after session.
PPS: It is not too late to share your opinion on pending legislation at this link: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/79th2017/A/
I presented this lady justice statue last week to my Vice Chairman of Judiciary, and the Chairman of Corrections, Parole and Probation, Assemblyman James Ohrenschall. It is in recognition of all of his hard work this session and in his five prior sessions. Thank you, Assemblyman Ohrenschall!
It was an honor to have Governor Sandoval place the first stamp in my State Parks Passport - for Mormon Station Park in Genoa, where we held the bill signing ceremony. I look forward to visiting many more state parks in the summer and I hope you do as well!
Governor Sandoval and I shake hands after he signed my first bill, Assembly Bill 385, giving a free one-year state parks pass to every Nevada 5th grader.
It was an honor to have my wife in attendance at the bill signing - here we are with the signed bill and the pen that Governor Sandoval used to sign it.
I had a great time interacting with the nearly 100 kids in attendance for the bill signing. They enjoyed an afternoon outside, as did I!
