2023 saw not one but three sessions overall: a regular session and two special sessions back-to-back. We saw significant progress spearheaded by Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro and Speaker of the Assembly Steve Yeager and legislators who drafted and championed new laws to help make Nevada a better place. We also saw Republicans and Governor Lombardo obstruct important capital improvement funding which led us to a special session and a bipartisan deal to once again have the public pay for a sports stadium in Las Vegas.
It is imperative that we hold both legislators and the Governor accountable for their votes on key issues like housing affordability, prescription drug costs, healthcare, climate policies, reproductive care, and more.
That’s why we created this progress report. So, use this as a guide to see how your state elected officials performed in 2023!
