Finally, I have some good news!
The first (and I’ve been told biggest) hurdle is won. Yesterday, the Senate Bill 128 for Red Rock was passed through committee and is now on it’s way to becoming state law. Now it just has to be voted through by both houses, and Red Rock will no longer be a trucking route! Hopefully it goes through without a hitch in the next 2-3 weeks, but I’ll keep a close eye on it just in case we need your help again, and then let you know when it is passed for sure.
In the meantime, thanks so much for all your work. The last time I wrote, it wasn’t looking so good, but you were able to completely turn this thing around with all your emphatic phone calls and letters! Senators Dennis Nolan, Joe Heck, Mark Amodei, Maurice Washington, Maggie Carlton, John Lee, and Joyce Woodhouse all heard our cries and acted accordingly.
We sincerely appreciate Dina Titus for introducing the bill and to the senators on committee for standing up for their constituents’ wishes.
Hopefully the next thing you hear from me will be a big V for victory!
