UPDATE, 5:30 PM: Sounds as if the meeting went well. Adelson and Hansen met for 90 minutes. "They had a very good discussion about Israel, and Ira Hansen passed with flying colors," Adelson lieutenant Andy Abboud told me, adding that Hansen's views on Israel have evolved with the help of another Jewish casino owner, Atlantis boss John Farahi. "I think it is a mistake to think that Ira Hansen is someone that people can't deal with." -------------------- Incoming Speaker Ira Hansen will meet with...
They will have a press event Wednesday, but I have learned advocates of a background check initiative for 2016 have more than enough signatures. How many? They need 101,000 and change; they have 250,000. It will be on the ballot in two years. And so, I'd guess, will recreational pot. The beginning of a blue wave? Or wishful thinking?
The Bundy Caucus has its first meeting. (In case you can't read it on your phone or laptop, note caucus spokesman Jim Wheeler, also tasked with mentoring the freshman, response to one poster who suggests: "Run the BLM out of our state would be my #1 request." Wheeler: "Good idea!") Have I mentioned how much fun this session will be?
Four Monday nuggets about the Ira Era, which officially begins in 84 days: Nugget No. 1: New Speaker Ira Hansen told me something that no elected official has ever said to me when I have asked about coming on my program: “I have a confidentiality agreement until our organizational structure and policy positions are more formalized.” What? So the new speaker has some kind of no-speak agreement with his own caucus? Um, he's the leader. And what kind of elected official has such an agreement? (My...
On March 5, 2013, legislative Democrats killed themselves. But that was not enough for these experts at political hara kiri: They also ensured that the coming red wave would be wide and deep, that Gov. Brian Sandoval would go unchallenged and that the Republican brand in Nevada would glisten. I have long argued that on that day had the Democrats embraced then-Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson's plan to tax mining and collaborated with him to force the governor’s hand and put the...
UPDATE II: I have confirmed Hickey turned down Ways and Means, told Hansen it would not be smart to have a northern chair of the money committee. Hickey had offered Hansen a place in leadership months ago, I'm reliably told, but then decided to make his move during the meeting, prodded by Michele Fiore and Jim Wheeler. Although some may speculate Hickey may quit after being shunted aside, I'm told that's not true. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, apologies to Bette: Buckle up...
