Goedhart’s Legislative Game Changer

In the frenetic closing minutes of the 2009 legislative session, our elected representatives slipped in a big tax hike on Nevada motorists by jacking up our vehicle registration fees without, apparently, many legislators, let alone the public, knowing about it.

That would be far less likely to happen in the future if legislation proposed by Assemblyman Ed Goedhart, the Citizen Information Act (CIA), passes this session. It would require that all bills be publicly posted on the Internet at least 48 hours before being voted on. It’d be a legislative game changer, but don’t hold your breath.
