LAS VEGAS (AP) — Final but unofficial election results from Clark County show that Democrats will have a supermajority in the state Assembly next year but have fallen 24 votes short in one race that's keeping them from a supermajority in the state Senate.
Assemblywoman Lucy Flores helped sponsor a number of successful bills in the last session of the legislature. But not all of her battles were successful. She delivered emotional -- and personal -- testimony in support of a bill to change Nevada's sexual education curriculum that ultimately failed. We'll talk to her about that and other measures to improve the lives of victims of domestic violence.
The legislature just ended with a flurry of action that authorized dispenseries for medical marijuana and killed the "Family Fun" tax. How do you think this year's session went? We'll also be talking about the trial of Pfc. Bradley Manning, who leaked classified information to WikiLeaks. And we discuss a Cheerios ad featuring a multiracial family that caused an internet backlash.
As the legislative session draws to a close, members of the Assembly and the state Senate have considered several issues such as gun control and energy policy. We'll talk about how they voted and what could happen in final 15 hours of the session.
Senate Majority Leader Mo Denis recently pulled his proposed payroll tax off the table. And that means the Democrats have no way to pay for their ambitious education plan. So who is to blame for the failure to reach a compromise on taxes? And what will it mean for residents of Nevada?
