Local lawmakers respond to special session

Sen. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City

“Tough times, no easy job. We kept focus on the work force ” no layoffs. We gave the money folks a chance to work something out. Maybe it wasn’t pretty but, at the end of the day, we got the job done in 12 hours.”

Assemblyman Tom Grady, R-Yerington

“I think the Assembly went very well and I think it was because we had good leadership on both sides that worked together.”

Assemblyman James Settelmeyer, R-Gardnerville

“I’m very happy to see we did not go after the (cost-of-living adjustments). Raises are a promise that should be kept. It went very well.”

Bonnie Parnell, D-Carson City

“I’m very proud of the Assembly. We trusted the speaker and leadership who spent a lot of time working on a compromise. It worked well.”
