I'm thinking maybe Tark should shift to a race he can win. Like lieutenant governor.

I have been calling it the Business License Tax since it was released by the governor. Why? 1. Because it is a tax. 2. Because BLT is acronymically funnier. Now tax maven Carole Vilardo has revealed she agrees at the top of a line-by-line explanation of the tax bill that will have its first hearing Wednesday: Please note: This “fee” does not fit the definition of a fee. Because the revenue is used to fund general government expenses, it is a tax. It will be referred to in this document as a tax...
Ah, Nevada. No open-toed shoes or blouses without collars. Why? "Hot brass is not fun." You can buy the rifle package or the machine-gun package. Get ready you anti-Nevadan Bloombergians!
I wrote about it Sunday. And today the Carson City Democrats presented their blueprint for Nevada. Will it ever get off the pages? It's attached here.
One day after the Legislature passed a measure to exempt school construction from prevailing wage laws, the AFL-CIO began airing an ad designed to get the governor's attention. Gov. Brian Sandoval is expected to sign the measure, but the AFL-CIO isn't waving a white flag just yet. The group had been walking in key districts, but could not stop the Assembly from passing the Senate bill on a near-party-line vote. Here's the ad:
The Clark County Education Association plans to give Gov. Brian Sandoval political cover with supportive TV ads about his education plan. Here are the first two, which are slated to start next week.
UPDATE, 2 PM: The company sent a dual message Wednesday. Switch executive Lesley McVay simultaneously sent an almost identical letter to the chamber, resigning from the group's executive committee. (Her letter is posted below.) ---- After months of tension with the chamber over taxes, the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance has lost its chairwoman to the infighting. Switch executive Missy Young notified board members Wednesday in a letter that she would no longer serve as chairman. This comes...
Rookie Democratic Assemblywoman Amber Joiner was so thrilled to be at the bill signing ceremony for the school construction bill that she took a selfie. The picture, which she tweeted (see right), included her Democratic colleagues, Ellen Spiegel, Mike Sprinkle and Olivia Diaz. Two dozen lawmakers attended the ceremony hastily thrown together Wednesday after Senate Bill 207 passed the Assembly with all Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for the measure. But some of those Democrats, including...
It's running in both urban markets, designed to affect the gun debate, and a sign of the group's enduring presence here. But can an ad compete with the NRA's influence in gun-happy Nevada? Or sway a vote?
That's the allegation in a complaint filed Tuesday with legislative police by Assemblyman John Moore against Majority Leader Paul Anderson. The confrontation came after Anderson tried to persuade Moore to change his vote to get a controversial school construction/bond rollover bill out of committee. Moore voted no, but then flipped later to help push out the bill, saying he reserved the right to vote no on the floor. Here's the complaint.
The geniuses seeking to recall Speaker John Hambrick because he dared to suggest the state might need more money for education, which is what two-thirds of Nevadans believe, have begun dropping lit at the door. It's not totally amateurish, but the bar remains high to get something like this done. And check out Jim Marchant's site -- the man who would replace Hambrick has a site that reads like a Citizen Outhouse screed. "It is sad the petitioners have had to resort to outright lies to get...
