Many students using Opportunity Scholarships will lose their funding within the next two years unless the Legislature acts. It’s one of the most popular education programs in the state, creating a disconnect between what the public wants and Democrat leadership will bring up for a vote. That’s according to Don Soifer, president, Nevada Action for School Options.

The Las Vegas City Council erred by preventing development at the Badlands Golf Course. HOV lanes should be open to all vehicles. Current city restrictions on short-term rentals should stay in place. That’s all according to Victoria Seaman, candidate for the Ward 2 seat on the Las Vegas City Council.

Nevada’s new U.S. Attorney Nicholas Trutanich refused to rule out the possibility of prosecuting marijuana crimes.

It’d be “irresponsible” to give an opinion on development at Badlands golf course before being elected. Las Vegas officials should increase enforcement against those violating the city’s restrictions on short-term rentals. The Las Vegas-area needs light rail to meet the needs of its growing population. That’s all according to Brian Knudsen, who’s running for Las Vegas City Council in Ward 1. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

It doesn’t makes sense for Las Vegas to spend millions in litigation fighting development at the Badlands golf course. One of the major root causes of homelessness is drug addiction. Las Vegas shouldn’t use rent control to rein in prices. That’s all according to Las Vegas City Council Ward 1 candidate Dave Marlon.

The background check bill currently being rushed through the Nevada legislature isn’t the same as the background check initiative voters passed in 2016. The bill also has a weaker exemption for hunters than a similar law in California. That’s according to Dan Reid, western director of the National Rifle Association, who said the NRA is also considering a legal challenge.

The FIRST STEP Act is currently before the Senate to help decrease recidivism rates. States that have passed similar measures have seen a decrease in crime.

Nevada education needs more money combined with accountability, but it’s too early to promise funding for Education Savings Accounts. There also isn’t a way to repeal the commerce tax next legislative session and a gubernatorial debate isn’t happening after Steve Sisolak rejected an invitation to debate on statewide TV. That’s according to Republican gubernatorial candidate and current Nevada attorney general Adam Laxalt.

The transgender regulations proposed by the Clark County School District violate the privacy rights of students.

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority CEO Rossi Ralenkotter shouldn’t get a “golden parachute.” Tax increases aren’t necessary, but if politicians want an increase they should send it to voters. Read by Three needs a chance to work, even if it holds back thousands of third graders. That’s according to Senate district 20 candidate and Assemblyman Keith Pickard.
