PLAN’s legislative priorities update

During our legislative retreat earlier this year PLAN’s staff, executive board, and member group organizations chose five legislative priorities to focus on. With less than a month left in the session, we wanted to give you an update on how these bills are doing.

Be sure to contact your Assembly and Senate representatives and ask them to support these pieces of legislation that will help create a more fair and just Nevada.
