Bills, Bills, Bills: Game On!

(Annie Black) – The good news is, all of my bill draft requests (BDRs) were written and officially submitted to the Legislature before this week’s deadline.  Here’s a recap and where they go from here…

  • ACR2: The “Reopen Nevada” bill would terminate Gov. Sisolak’s “Declaration of Emergency.”

Cosponsors: None

The bill has been removed from the Chief Clerk’s desk (where they tried to kill it) and assigned to the Legislative Operations and Elections Committee chaired by Assemblywoman Brittney Miller.  No hearing has been scheduled yet.

  • AB120: “Emergency Small Business Relief Act.” Would eliminate the state business license fee for certain businesses.

Cosponsors: Assembly Members Ellison, Dickman, Wheeler, Matthews, McArthur & O’Neill

The bill has been referred to the Committee on Revenue chaired by Assemblywoman Lesley E. Cohen.

  • AB232: The “Cutting Out Non-Essential Spending Act” (CONES) would create an “anti-appropriations” legislative committee that does nothing but look for non-essential spending that can and should be cut from the budget.

Cosponsors: Assembly Members Matthews, Dickman, Wheeler, Ellison and McArthur

The bill has been referred to the Legislative Operations and Elections Committee chaired by Assemblywoman Brittney Miller.

  • AJR9: The “Spending Restraint Act” would require a 2/3 super-majority vote of the Legislature to pass a general fund budget that grows greater than the combined rate of inflation plus population growth from the previous biennium.

Cosponsors:  Assembly Members Wheeler, Dickman, Matthews, Ellison, McArthur & O’Neill.

The bill has been referred to the Legislative Operations and Elections Committee chaired by Assemblywoman Brittney Miller.

  • AJR11: The “None of the Above Act” would put teeth in Nevada’s unique existing law by disqualifying candidates if NOTA wins at the ballot box and provides for alternative candidates and/or special elections.

Cosponsors: None

The bill has been referred to the Legislative Operations and Elections Committee chaired by Assemblywoman Brittney Miller.

  • AJR12: The “Slam & Jam Prevention Act” would require that all bills, in their entirety and without amendment, be posted online for public review for at least 48 hours before being voted on.

Cosponsors: Assembly Members Wheeler, Dickman, Matthews, McArthur & Ellison.

The bill has been referred to the Legislative Operations and Elections Committee chaired by Assemblywoman Brittney Miller.

Now, here’s where things go from here…

Each bill must be scheduled for a hearing and receive a committee vote before April 9, 2021 (unless they extend the deadline).  Without a committee vote approving the bill by the deadline, the bill dies.

I have asked the committee chairs to let me know when each bill will receive a hearing and will let you know as much in advance as possible so that members of “Annie’s Army” can testify at the hearings or submit statements in support of the bill.

Stand by for future updates.

Open the Building

Our efforts to safely open the Legislature to the public – just like every other public building in the state – continue.  If you haven’t yet signed my “Open the Building” online petition, click on the link below…

Where are Your “Biden Bucks”?

If you haven’t received your “Blue State Bailout” stimulus/rebate check, it may be the IRS just hasn’t gotten to you yet.  If you want to check on the status, click here and then click on the “Get My Payment” button.

You’ll then have to enter your social security number, your date of birth and your address.  Then click “Enter.”  At that point you’ll be redirected to a page that *should* tell you the status of your “Biden Bucks” and when you can expect to receive them.

Hope this helps!

QUOTES OF THE DAY

“Boulder Shooting Suspect Ahmad Al-Issa Posted Anti-Trump Messages. … Ahmad Al-Issa’s purported Facebook page, which has now been removed, included a lot of anti-Trump messaging, as well as pro-Islam messages.” – The National Pulse

“It’s pretty sad that instead of focusing on #BoulderShooting victims, we have to go back to political camps. Sorry, lefties, the guy wasn’t a white Trump supporter. And Atlanta wasn’t about Asians. EVIL is EVIL. I only WISH we could solve THAT problem.” – Talk-show host Heidi Harris

“The first on the scene of the #Boulder shooting, Officer Eric Talley is a hero who sacrificed it all. He rushed into the gunfire putting the safety of others ahead of his own. His life was one of significance – one we will #NeverForget.” – Former LAPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton
