Nevada Legislature pauses to honor Memorial Day

CARSON CITY — They died in the prime of life, soldiers of wars throughout the nation’s history.

That was the Memorial Day message Assemblyman Chris Edwards, R-Las Vegas, shared with his colleagues on the Assembly floor on Monday.

“May our service here be worthy of their sacrifices,” said Edwards, a retired Navy officer.

Nevada lawmakers typically work on Memorial Day, as the session’s end is rapidly approaching, and the 2017 session was no exception.

Assembly members took a moment, however, to reflect on sacrifices as they slogged through bills. And many members of the Nevada Legislature took to Twitter to honor those who have served.
