  2023 Nevada Legislature: The Final Wrap  

- From the Nevada REALTORS Advocate -

To fairly assess the 82nd Legislative Session of the Nevada Legislature, it is imperative to begin with the contentious and grueling gubernatorial race between then-incumbent Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak and Republican Clark County Sherriff Joe Lombardo. The results took nearly 10 days to count and many political types, us included, were on pins and needles while the arduous task of tabulating votes from mail ballots took what felt like an eternity to sift through. In the end, Lombardo became the only challenger in the entire United States to defeat an incumbent governor during the 2022 Election Cycle. 

The importance of Lombardo’s ascension to the Governor’s Office and its impact on Carrara’s clients cannot be understated, as it changed the legislative trajectory on a wide range of policy issues, offering many of our clients a critical backstop against outrageous legislation that baffled even seasoned Carson City observers. Lombardo’s threat to use his veto pen on countless pieces of legislation assisted the Carrara team in working to moderate some legislative proposals, while also posturing in an aggressive stance on other policy issues.
