Nine Nevada state legislators, including the Assembly and Senate leaders, are on an eight-day trip to Taiwan.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the lawmakers left Nevada on Feb. 7. The trip is being paid for by the Taiwanese government.
Taiwan has been a “sister state” to Nevada since 1985, and representatives from the Asian nation visit the Nevada Legislature.
On the trip are Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick and Senate Majority Leader Mo Denis, as wells as Sens. Aaron Ford, David Parks and Ben Kieckhefer and Assembly members David Bobzien, Heidi Swank, Paul Anderson and Randy Kirner.
