(Nevada War Room – Better NV PAC) – With Nevada Democrat leaders expected to hold a press conference on the steps of the Capitol in Carson City at 12:15 today, we thought we’d pose a few questions for them…
1.) Why are legislative Democrats opposing Governor Lombardo’s school choice bill, AB 400, while 70% of Nevadans – including a majority of Democrats – support it?
2.) The Clark County Education Association and numerous education professionals across Nevada support AB 400. Why are they wrong?
3.) Democrats in the legislature have largely supported Gov. Lombardo’s Safer and Supportive Schools Act. Is it fair to say that the restorative justice efforts put forward under the previous administration have failed?
4.) Do you and fellow Nevada Democrats support Chairwoman Daniele Monroe-Moreno’s statement that she wishes she could “legislate what parents do?”
5.) AB 400 contains the “Read by Three” initiative and $2.1 billion in education funding. Do you oppose those items?
6.) Nevada’s felony retail theft threshold is currently at $1,200, Gov. Lombardo wants to lower it so criminals can be punished. Do the Nevada Democrats agree with Gov. Lombardo?
7.) AB 236 weakened penalties on fentanyl. Gov. Lombardo wants to strengthen them with his Crime Reduction Act. Why do Democrats oppose this bill?
8.) Sen. Dina Neal and Assemblywomen Natha Anderson and Selena La Rue Hatch pushed for new tax hikes on Nevada families. Do they have the support of the entire Democrat caucus?
9.) Why are Sen. Dallas Harris and Nevada Democrats calling for a $30 million tax-payer funded investment in legislative offices in Las Vegas with 117 additional staff, while opposing provisions of Gov. Lombardo’s government modernization legislation?
Question for Secretary of State Cisco Aguilar
77 percent of Nevadans support a voter ID law, but you don’t. Why do you disagree with them?
Question for Attorney General Aaron Ford
By your own office’s admission, you were instrumental in passing AB 236, but now you’re trying to reverse much of what it changed on fentanyl and retail crime. How can you be trusted as Attorney General after supporting a policy that you tacitly admit has failed?
Question for Treasurer Zach Conine
AB 28, the Baby Bonds Bill, uses taxpayer dollars to give discretionary funds for education to low-income Nevada kids, which is the same principle as Opportunity Scholarships. Do you support Opportunity Scholarships?
