04 Feb Battle Born Progress Readies for the 80th Legislative Session
For years, Nevadans have worked diligently to forward progressive issues in the Silver State
Carson City, NV – Progressives watch eagerly as new and returning legislators take their seats for Nevada’s 80th Legislative Session. On this historic day, we celebrate as the first female majority legislature in the nation, and African-American legislative leaders with diverse majority caucuses begin their work for Nevada.
Battle Born Progress Executive Director, Annette Magnus released the following statement:
“This year will be historic in many ways. We have the first female majority, which is groundbreaking as research shows that when women lead, women issues are addressed. We look forward to working with Governor Sisolak and new legislative majorities this session to make progressive change.
We will still work hard to ensure that the promises that were made are kept this session. This includes raising the RPS to at least 50% by 2030, funding our public schools, protecting Nevadans from gun violence, improving voting rights across the state, working to conserve our special places across the state and making sure every Nevadan has access to affordable healthcare, just to name a few. We will also be working with our progressive community partners to ensure all voice across the state are lifted up and heard in our state capitol.
I am thrilled to be back up in Carson City again and working side by side with legislators to accomplish these goals and improve the state for future generations of Nevadans. This year, we will see Nevada make real progress and we could not be more excited to get to work.”
