Nevada Legislature Open for Business

The business of the people that is. And let's hope they'll remember it.

This Legislature will see the first female Assembly speaker, the slimmest of slim majorities for the Republicans in the Senate and 11 new freshmen, one in the Senate and ten in the Assembly. Among them David Bobzien, the new Assembly member for the 24th district in Reno. I got to meet David a couple of weeks ago in Reno. More on that in the coming days.

Here are two articles on the convening of the Legislature. One by Brendan Riley for the AP, another by Geoff Dornan for the Nevada Appeal. The latter has a list of interesting legislature statistics.
