I’m proud to have sponsored and passed legislation that helps increase positive parent involvement in school work. This, common sense dictates and study after study has shown, increases school performance and the overall well-being of our students.
My colleagues and I put into law provisions allowing any military veteran who is honorably discharged to in-state tuition at our colleges and universities AB260. These brave men and women have in many cases had no permanent home for at least two years and in many cases much longer. Nevada will gladly welcome those veterans who honor us by choosing our state to call home, and make their lives easier if they want to pursue a college degree.
Additionally, we have passed laws to better protect children in foster care, seniors, and other vulnerable populations. We renewed our commitment to one of our most valuable resources, Lake Tahoe SB229, by ensuring Nevada remains in the bi-state compact (TRPA). I’m also proud of legislation I sponsored to close a loophole in our criminal justice system that shielded people who provide help to criminals from being prosecuted AB116, here is some local news coverage of the bill.
