Senate Bill 223
Nevada Senate Leader Removes It from Calendar
Senator Aaron Ford
SB 223 was a bill that essentially would declare Nevada a "sanctuary" state.
Its chief architect, in addition to the Senate Majority Leader, Aaron Ford, was...
Senator Yvanda Cansela
...and was jointly sponsored by 12 others in the Nevada state government.
Anthem Opinions took a deep look at this and other proposed legislation that many Nevadans were unaware existed.
We strongly believed...
As you can see, we "struck a cord", and pursued this with all the Henderson Mayoral candidates, asking their opinion in this matter.
Each graciously shared their views...so much so...that this measure was a topic of primary concern during the recent Mayoral Debate on March 27th at the Convention Center in downtown Henderson.
In addition many others who call Nevada their home, would subsequently comment how negatively they would be affected by the passage of this legislation.
Even The Las Vegas Review Journal became aware of the issue along with other political figures...
... and the subsequent enormous backlash of those who opposed it, greatly assisted its defeat.
This was not merely a Republican or Democratic issue, though sponsored in its entirety by members of the Democratic Party....
...this was a "people" issue that required disclosure in order that they could voice their concerns.
It would go far beyond being a simple "issue".
Instead it became a matter of "lifestyle" and preserving a retirement quality that so many of us believed we were entitled to, after years of hard work, raising families, and saving funds in order to be independent, not being a burden to future generations.
So...to those who took the time to contact the legislators to share their views, we strongly believe...
YOU SAVED NEVADA
