Nevada’s Legislature meets biannually in odd numbered years for 120 days starting on the first Monday in February. During the session, RAN’s in-house lobby team works in conjunction with outside counsel to track all bills that affect the retail industry such as business taxes, employer/employee issues, wage issues, health insurance, technology issues, pharmacy related legislation, energy, organized retail theft and much more. However, RAN’s work doesn’t end when a legislative session adjourns.
