Extending Rights for the Military
(Assembly Bill 118)
The men and women in our military are given the awesome responsibility of protecting our lives on a daily basis. I introduced into the Nevada Assembly legislation that extends the right to carry concealed weapons to members of the military who are 18 and older. Right now the law states that you must be 21 or over to obtain a permit, and yet the military has already given them the responsibility of carrying a weapon. It does not make sense that our younger members of the military would be trusted to carry a gun in our defense, but not in their everyday lives. This bill provides consistency.

Assembly Bill 120 will Benefit Taxpayers
Assembly Bill 120 will ensure developers are contributing their fair share when it comes to their impact on our overcrowded schools. I heard directly from the voters of Assembly District 31 and they agree that developers should be sharing in the cost of school construction. Washoe County voters stepped up in November and voted yes on WC1 to contribute their hard earned money to upholding high quality schools for our students. My bill AB120 will make sure developers do the same.
We are facing opposition from development corporations, special interests, and other groups that would rather the burden of their impacts rest on taxpayers for school construction. Getting AB120 passed will be a challenge, but this is a challenge that I am prepared to fight.
