Get Ready to Get Involved!
Nevada’s legislative session is underway this month – which means the difficult work is about to begin for those who believe in a limited and accountable government.
Nevada Policy Outreach and Coalitions Director Marcos Lopez joined the show to discuss how activists can become more involved during the legislative session. From Nevada Policy’s legislative bill tracker to regular updates for supporters and activists, Marcos explains how the institute is focused on keeping Nevadans informed and engaged so they can have an outsized influence on what happens in Carson City.
The Financial Crisis You don’t Talk about
A federal debt of $31 trillion certainly demands attention – but it’s not the only slow-motion financial trainwreck taking place.
Mark Moses, author of The Municipal Financial Crisis, joins the program to discuss the way our cities and municipalities are spiraling into similar financial turmoil. As always, local politics matter – and the way your city is throwing away tax dollars deserves far more scrutiny than it generally receives.
Nevada is Not California East
Politicians in Nevada might seem eager to emulate the absurdity of California politics – but is that really the fate of this great state?
John Tsarpalas, president of Nevada Policy, joined the program to talk about the culture, history and people that make Nevada so distinct from our neighbor to the west – as well as all the hard work we have to do in the upcoming year to make sure we remain that way.
What Policy Solutions Should We be Focused On in the Year Ahead?
At first glance, it seems like divided government should make it harder to get meaningful reforms passed into law … but the truth is, there are still plenty of opportunities.
Geoffrey Lawrence, director of research for Nevada Policy and the Reason Foundation, joined the program to talk about the policy solutions we should focus on in the 2023 legislative session – and why a politically divided government might just benefit those of us who want to get important things done in the year ahead.
The Desperate Political Game of Union Bosses
Guest: Aaron Withe, Freedom Foundation
As unionization rates continue to decline across the nation, union bosses are getting increasingly political in an effort to reverse the trend.
Freedom Foundation Chief Executive Officer Aaron Withe joined the program to talk about the political business model both private-sector and public-sector unions are using to increase their revenue – and why such methods are not only a danger to taxpayers, but also bad for workers themselves.
The Elections are (Finally) Over … Now What?
The elections are finally over!
