In the last AnnieGram I laid out “Black’s Blueprint” – seven steps the Legislature should take to help Nevadans rebuild their lives and businesses after the #SisolakShutdown.

But there are still a lot of issues the Legislature needs to deal with aside from those related to COVID-19.
So I thought, in these final days before the election, I’d share some “Where I Stand” positions on a number of them…
- I support requiring a valid, photo ID before casting a ballot
- I oppose changing our elections to “all-mail” balloting
- I support a prohibition on government employees serving in the Legislature
- I support requiring at least two government regulations be repealed for every new one adopted
- I support authorizing citizens with concealed-carry permits to carry their weapons on school grounds
- I support reauthorizing and fully funding Education Savings Accounts (ESA’s) and Opportunity Scholarships
- I support “merit pay” for exceptional teachers while making it easier to fire incompetent ones
- I support banning “sanctuary cities” statewide
- I support allowing you to buy less-expensive health insurance policies across state lines
- I oppose the creation of a “mileage tax” on your car
- I support closing the “tax restraint” loophole by requiring a 2/3 super-majority vote of the people for any tax hikes the Legislature puts on the ballot
- I oppose charging sales tax for your Internet purchases from out-of-state companies
- I support creating a permanent “ANTI-Appropriations Committee” in the Legislature focused exclusively on cutting spending
- I support requiring that Nevada’s checkbook be posted online so you can quickly and easily see exactly what your tax dollars are being spent on, to whom and by how much
- I support giving the governor the same line-item veto authority that 44 other state governors already have
- I oppose government mandates on private businesses, including wage and benefit mandates
- I support a requirement that all bills be posted online for at least 72 hours before being voted on, without amendment
- I support a requirement that all campaign donations of $500 or more be reported online within 72 hours of receipt

Good luck finding where my opponent stands on these issues…or on anything else. He’s back to “Invisible Man” mode. Let’s make him disappear once and for all on June 9. VOTE Annie Black!
