The 2019 Legislature's most magnificent flop

One example of a priority for which your Nevada Legislature has demonstrated approximately zero urgency is housing.

No state in the nation has enough available affordable housing for the post-crash economy’s precariously employed low-wage workforce. It is a national crisis. There is nothing unique about a state having a housing problem.
