Welcome To Nevada Politics: A Roundup Of The Legislative Session


The 2015 legislative session is only in its first weeks, but already some political observers in Nevada say the prognosis is not good. Republicans continue to deal with discord in their ranks. Governor Brian Sandoval's plan to increase taxes to fund education could face serious opposition from members of his own party. Meanwhile, police are investigating a possible extortion plot. Recall efforts are underway, and Democrats, now in the minority, are accusing their counterparts of hyper-partisanship.

Fred Lokken, professor of political science at Truckee Meadows Community College, joins Reno Public Radio's Will Stone to discuss some of these headlines and what they could mean for this session.
