LEGISLATIVE CRIER

By Susan Ruch, Legislative Chair

There are many issues taking place in our State and our Country today. I am listing a few things that are extremely important to our well-being. Please
call and email your U.S Senators of both houses, your State Senators and you local Assemblymen/women. Your voices really do make a difference.

A great example is Bill AB376—the Sanctuary State Bill in which they removed the worst part of the
bill. They removed the section of the bill which restricted law enforcement from addressing any illegal immigrants regarding their status in Nevada. This was huge. This bill still needs your help as it gives $500,000 for legal defense for persons illegally here in our state. We need to stop this bill completely; this removal was a
huge success and all of you are to be patted on your backs for helping with the Sanctuary State Bill AB376.
Another Victory was tAB286, a Gun Law. The concealed carry part of the bill was completely removed,
thanks to you. The section of the bill that makes Shadow Guns, gun kits, illegal is still in the Bill. Unfortunately, there are many people in our state who have this type of gun which has no serial number. We are probably
not going to have this section removed, but we can demand that they add an amendment. What we need is to
have these guns grandfathered. Otherwise, anyone who owns these guns will be committing a felony. Once
more a victory, but we still need your help to protect law abiding citizens. Please call your Senators and ask for
an amendment to the bill allowing this type of gun, Shadow Guns, already owned to be grandfathered
in. AB286

Urgent, AB321 a sweeping change in our Nevada Election.
This bill would make Universal Mail Voting and Ballot Harvesting permanent. Election board officers who
review electronic signatures would be appointed by the registrar/clerk (Like Joe Gloria in Vegas, Terrible idea!).
As of today, the bill is in Ways and Means attempting to see how and if they can fund this bill. Please keep
calling and emailing all Senators and tell them NO, we do not want this. Email/call the members of the Ways
and Means and tell them you do not want this passed. Have neighbors, friends and family members call,
swamp them with our messages. NO on AB321

On a National note, we have many issues to fight:

H.R.1 the bill called “For the Peoples ACT” is a bill that will completely change the way we vote. It would
bring about all mail-in ballots and many other terrible ideas to help keep the Democrats in power. We need to
Stand Tall for Nevada and the U.S. and tell our Senators NO. Call/Email Senator Rosen and Senator CortezMasto (she is up for Re-election in 2022). Tell them to Vote No on H.R.1. Also, you are welcome to contact all
of the other Senators as well. Let them know that we are awake and watching.
Please send additional emails on each particular subject. Tell your U.S. Senators to Vote NO on the idea
of Packing the Court (4 More Additional Supreme Court Justices, Vote No on Adding Washington, DC as a
State and most importantly Vote No on removing the Filibuster. We need the Filibuster, tell the Senators do
not end the all-important Filibuster.

Once more thank you for all of your help. Make sure to spread the information and encourage people to
call the U.S. Senators, Nevada Senators and your Nevada Assemblymen/Women, it makes a difference. Stand
Tall for Nevada, we love our state, we love our country.

Thought it might be helpful to remind everyone how easy it is to state your opinion on any of the bills currently under deliberation.

The Legislature link is: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/80th2019. Complete the form, state your opinion and your opinion will be counted.

Throughout a legislative session, legislators review these opinions to gain perspective on how constituents in their districts feel about legislation. Constituent names, address and other personal information are NOT made public, but are available to legislators so they will know who is submitting the comment and are able to contact the constituent if they so desire. Only opinion totals and comments are made publicly available on this site.

“There is a power in public opinion in this country and I thank God for it – for it is the most honest and best of all powers which will not tolerate an incompetent or unworthy man to hold in his weak or wicked hands the lives and fortunes of his fellow citizens.” – Martin Van Buren
