Bills intended to make schools safer, change voting requirements and potentially address the homeless remain alive as state lawmakers head into the last six weeks of the legislative session.

Banning the sale of flavored tobacco products died. Getting water at restaurants only if you asked for it died. And a bill to audit education spending died.

Discussing these bills and others with State of Nevada were lobbyist and former state Senator Warren Hardy, and ACLU of Nevada policy manager Lily Baran.
