CARSON CITY — 248 bills passed the Assembly as the First House Passage Deadline hit the Nevada Legislature. Legislators worked late into Tuesday night passing bills to make Nevada the best place to live, work, and raise a family.
“At a time when heated rhetoric and hyper-partisanship have defined politics in Washington D.C., we showed the country what a citizen’s legislature is capable of accomplishing,” said Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson. “By setting aside our differences, we saw bipartisan efforts—passing both Democratic and Republican sponsored bills— to improve the lives of hardworking Nevadans. We are united by our common desire to serve the people of Nevada.”
Throughout the session so far, approximately 92% of the bills were passed with bipartisan support and 55% received unanimous support in the Assembly.
