Energy – the battle over Ballot Question 3 is shaping up to be a critical issue and one in which speculation is rampant and hard facts in short supply. Now is the time to begin following this issue to be prepared to make an informed decision in November.

**Between Nevada Legislative Sessions**

Those concerned about Environmental Justice issues keep an eye on relevant activities and legislation at the local, state, and national levels and update relevant media links. We will post an alert above if critical issues come before our elected officials and public input is appropriate.

When the Nevada State Legislature is in session (next session begins February 2019), those concerned about Environmental Justice monitor legislation that affects a variety of issues. In any given session these may include, energy (including alternative and renewable), water/water conservation, public lands, fracking, recycling programs, nuclear/toxic waste disposal, humane animal treatment, environmentally sound planning. State legislation on these issues usually comes under the purview of the Assembly’s Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Mining (NRAM) committee, and the Senate’s Natural Resources committee.

During legislative sessions it is our goal to provide an updated Watch List of bills, links to more detailed information about legislation, and Call To Action items. The Watch List and resource links are here. Media links are here.
