Even for a Legislative Building that has pretty much seen it all, the exchanges last week between state Sen. Michael Roberson, R-Henderson, and Nevada Mining Association President Tim Crowley was bizarre.
A person could quibble over how the Nevada Assembly went about expelling Assemblyman Steven Brooks. But you can’t quibble over the fact that lawmakers did the right thing.
I listened very closely Tuesday — really listened — for a legitimate argument against repealing Article 1, Section 21 of the Nevada Constitution.
Suddenly, everybody wants guns on campus.
On Tuesday, lawmakers will debate erasing a limitation on mining taxes that’s been in the state constitution since Nevada became a state in 1864. They’ll debate erasing the discriminatory ban on gay marriage inserted by voters in the early part of the last decade. And they’ll hold a hearing on whether wayward Assemblyman Steven Brooks should be expelled from office.
If you’re confused about the issues in the case of Assemblyman Steven Brooks, it’s understandable.
Little Nevada is all grown up.
Good news: It turns out the Legislature can still pass a mining tax!
Assemblyman Joe Hogan, D-Las Vegas, will certainly get grief for introducing a bill to legalize marijuana in Nevada.
