New Nevada legislature boundaries could mix northern and southern voters

Some rural Nevada legislators say the legislative maps drawn up by the state's "special masters" aren't fair to their communities. Assembly Minority Leader Pete Goicoechea, R-Eureka told the Las Vegas Sun that rural counties deserve adequate representation in the legislature. Goicoechea and some of his assembly colleagues think that because the new maps lump a small piece of Clark County in with large parts of rural Nevada, it leaves open the possibility that a southern Nevadan could be elected to represent those areas. And that is a fear in the eyes of some leaders. We'll talk with Assembly Minority Leader, Pete Goicoechea about who should represent Nevada's rural areas.
