Legislative Update 2/15/2019

This is the first of the CCRW Legislative Alerts that will be provided each Friday during Session.  The Club’s 2019 Legislative Committee consists of Joy Trushenski, Diane Allen, Amber Turner and Sheri LeTourneau.

Our plan is to monitor the Bills that we think will have the most impact or concern to our Club members and share the information with you.  Of course, we welcome any feedback you may have.

Beyond our Friday Alerts, there are several websites where you may track bills and garner more in-depth information:

           Nevada Legislature – https://www.leg.state.nv.us/

           Nevada Policy Research Institute – https://www.npri.org/

           Contact your individual legislators (contact info may be found on the Legislature website)   

           The Alerts will also be posted on our CCRW Website – http://ccrwclub.com/ and our Facebook page www.facebook.com/carsoncityrepublicanwomen/

           In addition, for more information on the following bills, use the “Digest” pull-down button on the Legislative website bill tracker.
