They may be in the minority, but Republicans in the Nevada legislature have set an agenda that includes bolstering the economy and reopening the state's schools. They also want to enact what they're calling common sense election reform. KUNR political editor Paul Boger joined Morning Edition host Noah Glick to break down the latest developments in Carson City.

With just a little more than a month left in Nevada's legislative session, hundreds of bills still remain up for consideration. That includes dozens of measures introduced by minority Republicans. KUNR's Paul Boger spoke with Assembly Minority Leader Jim Wheeler in Carson City to discuss whether Republicans are seeing the bipartisanship they were guaranteed by Democrats.

There are currently 52 bills sponsored by Assembly Republicans still alive in the Nevada legislature. Reno Assemblywoman Jill Tolles introduced several of them. She spoke with KUNR's Paul Boger from her office in Carson City about her take on some of that legislation and whether lawmakers have been willing to work in a bipartisan fashion this session.
