Question: Last legislative session, the major initiative was a tax increase to support education in the state. What should the major accomplishment of 2017 legislature be?

you want revenue from it to fund health initiatives, research and/or

Mental health and addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery
Question: Many elected officials in Clark County say they'd like to see the
property tax cap changed - that it's time because tax revenues aren't
meeting budgets. Is that an idea you want to see the legislature tackle?
I agree that we need to look at an adjustment to our current tax cap limitation, however I’d like to see a progressive property tax because many middle class families cannot afford a tax increase at this time.
Question: Do you support the construction of a taxpayer-funded NFL stadium?
I love football, I would really love to watch my team play here in Las Vegas and would welcome the much needed job opportunities that with come with the construction of the NFL stadium. But I personally struggle with the use of taxpayer funds. I would like to see evidence that public financing of this type of project would have a positive economic benefit for the citizens of Nevada and would only support public financing if there is also financing dedicated to improving the infrastructure needs of the state.
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
