State Sen. Kelvin Atkinson heard the hallway chatter, so he wanted to know what his lawyer thought: Can Uber operate without the failed regulatory bill so long as a companion insurance measure passed both houses? The bill that passed the Senate, SB 440, defined a "transportation network company," leading some to believe that was enough for Uber to operate without the regulatory appartus cab and limo companies have. Atkinson, who is on the Commerce Committee and voted for the Uber...
Perhaps the most amazing thing about the latest drama among Assembly Republicans is that Michele Fiore has nothing to do with it. After a series of spirited (euphemism alert) caucus meetings during the last week, in which Victoria Seaman read a prepared statement during one and Ira Hansen suggested if she were a man he would have punched her, the situation esclated Thursday to separate statements from caucus leaders and Seaman, in which she demanded a public apology from Hansen and criticized...
The AFL-CIO is going after state Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson with a new ad starting Friday statewide, complete with "Ralston Live" clip and scary beard picture (him not me.)
And more to come from the Clark County Education Association:
With news of an anti-gay marriage group's appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstitute Nevada's ban, I wondered if Attorney General Adam Laxalt would join the effort. Laxalt, a known gay marriage foe, punted through a spokeswoman to the governor's office. Brian Sandoval did not punt: "The Coalition for the Protection of Marriage does not represent the interests of the State of Nevada. The Coalition does not have standing to seek review from the United States Supreme Court. My position that...
Nevada Democratic state Sen. Mo Denis remembers his Republican cousin from Florida once told him he "would rather be commissioner of the NFL than president." With his dream job currently occupied and no vacancy on the horizon, Marco Rubio, who lived in Las Vegas for six years as a kid, today announced his candidacy for his second choice. Denis, 53, is 10 years older than his cousin but remembers that Rubio's father was laid off as a bartender in Miami and moved the Rubio clan to Vegas. Denis'...
I have already told you about those targeted mailers to Democrats that turned the tide for Carolyn Goodman against Stavros Anthony, the soon to be ex-mayor-pro-tem. Now, courtesy of an exclusive guest piece from Goodman campaign boss Braley Mayer, how the race was won: Our initial polling told us this wasn't going to be a race we could just walk in. We were at 45 percent and Stavros was at 20 percent, but amazingly 40 percent of voters had never heard of Stavros Anthony. However, whenever an...
(This aired last night on "Ralston Live." Sorry, no video available.) Gary Gray wasn’t the kind of guy to brag about how many campaign he won. But in the last 30 years, he may have won more races than any other consultant in the state. Gray died Thursday at the age of 69 in a car accident. But it was no accident that his talents were sought after by candidates at every level – from local officials to lawmakers to governors. He was, quite simply, a man ahead of his time. In the mid-1980s, Gray...
The state group trying to legalize marijuana has divorced itself from a national organization, which has set up a separate PAC in Nevada. The split between the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol and the Marijuana Policy Project began last November when the former filed a cease and desist order against the latter. (See below.) Then, earlier this year, MPP formed a separate PAC (with a similar name) from the Nevada coalition with the secretary of state. (Attached here.) The schism has...
UPDATED: I have obtained the amendment being floated by Switch to dramatically change the statute under which ratepayers can leave the NV Energy grid, making it much easier and cheaper. I have attached it here. In a move that could dramatically affect power rates in Nevada, three major casino companies recently filed applications to exit the state's utility monopoly, following in the footsteps of data giant Switch. Switch filed its application last November, but Wynn Resorts, MGM Resorts and...
