80th Legislative Session (2019)

Our work during the 80th Legislative Session.


The 80th Legislative Session began Monday, February 4, 2019 and ended, Sine Die, just before midnight on Monday, June 3, 2019.. NSEA had a strong, regular, and noticeable presence at the Legislature from the Governor's State of the State Address in mid-January all the way through June 3rd.

NSEA continued to be an active stakeholder at the Legislature, and worked to ensure NSEA’s vision of a quality public education for all Nevada students regardless of zip code. NSEA tracked nearly 200 bills, with 58 of 77 supported bills passing both houses, and 12 of the 13 opposed bills failing. The NSEA ground team as well as NSEA member leaders testified at the table over 100 distinct times, submitting exhibits on about 50 unique bills. 

Listed below are the various NSEA priorities, agreed upon by the NSEA Lobby Team and the NSEA Ground Team. This page contains official NSEA positions, the memos submitted to each committee, and videos of our ground team and member leaders testifying throughout session.
