Nevada Legislature

As a Nevada Youth Legislator I represent the youth of Senate District 16 which covers Carson City, Incline Village and South Reno. I also travel state wide filling in for other NYL members at events. I am currently presenting a bill to save lives by implementing a hands on defensive driving requirement to the licensure process. I also speak to students about understanding the policy making process, and how they can get involved, as well as how to effectively lobby an issue that is important to them.
