FILE - The Nevada Supreme Court in Carson City, Nev. is shown May 2, 2018.

In little more than a month, state lawmakers end the 2023 legislative session, but this is about the time the real work in Carson City starts.

Hundreds of bills remain up for consideration and an $11.4 billion state budget still needs to be drafted.

Lobbyists and lawmakers are meeting, cajoling and maneuvering to try to get what they or their clients want. All the while, proposals are altered and tinkered with so that they have a chance to become law.

We’re talking about changes that could drastically alter public education funding; $500 million in tax benefits to the Oakland As to build a stadium in Las Vegas; and a lot more.

Watching all of it, and really being a part of all of it, we have two lobbyists with us to talk about what’s truly happening right now.


Guests: Annette Magnus, executive director, Battle Born Progress; Elliot Malin, lobbyist, former Dean Heller aide
