NEVADA SENATE MAJORITY LEADER AARON FORD DELIVERS DEMOCRATIC STATE OF THE STATE RESPONSE

CARSON CITY - Tonight, Nevada State Senate Majority Leader Aaron D. Ford delivered the Democratic response to Governor Sandoval’s State of the State address. For the first time, the response was also delivered in Spanish by Senator Mo Denis. 

“In 2016, Nevada voters sent a clear message, giving Democrats the majority of seats in the Nevada legislature, and the ability to shape the legislative agenda on behalf of Nevada families,” said Senator Ford. “Our agenda -- the Nevada Blueprint -- will expand and protect the middle class and build a Nevada that works for everyone.”  

In the response, Senator Ford outlined Democratic legislative priorities for the upcoming session. Democrats will focus on economic fairness and job creation, continuing to improve Nevada’s K-12 education system, investing in higher education and technical education programs while keeping costs low, and protecting Nevadans’ basic rights from federal overreach.
