Given the challenges facing our state, it is unsurprising that Nevadans from across the political spectrum are increasingly asking for more transparency from their state and local governments.
To meet this desire, TransparentNevada sent surveys to all current and prospective lawmakers asking for their views on some frequently discussed open-government proposals.
Some responses include additional comments. We urge you to read the full comments in order to get a fully formed picture of the candidate's views. You can view the full comments by clicking on their response.
