The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is proposing several different fixes to alleviate traffic and improve safety. NDOT will be approving a plan in a couple of months after a public comment period, which is happening now. Here to talk more about this is KUNR’s Bree Zender.

Over the past few weeks, KUNR has been airing interviews with several candidates for political office across the state.

As part of an effort to learn more about his stance on the issues, KUNR's Paul Boger spoke with another prominent Republican, Assemblywoman Jill Tolles of Reno, to talk about why she's supporting Laxalt's campaign for governor.
