Nevada Legislature Makes National News!

That's right! Our own state legislature hit the big time with an excellent feature story in, none other than, the Washington Post! The article focused on our female-majority legislature – the FIRST in the nation – and how it has made a significant difference in the tone, conversations, activities, types of issues addressed and bills put forward. It also points out the ethnic diversity that exists among that group. It's a great read!  So… just in case you missed it, here's the link:

Relish this rare moment. Nevada's finally #1 (in a positive way!). Enjoy!
