Legislative countdown

As we begin the countdown to the start of the 73rd session of the Nevada Legislature on February 7th articles and opinion pieces are starting to pick up around the state. The Lahontan Valley News has an opinion piece lobbying for a state lottery.

Meanwhile an anti-smoking initiative petition is seeking relief from the courts. The groups promoting the petition were dealt a setback when Secretry of State Dean Heller said the petition needed ten percent of the voters in the 2004 general election instead of the 2002 general election since the petition was presented after the November 2nd election.
