Nevada’s Legislature meets biannually in odd numbered years for 120 days starting on the first Monday in February. During the session, RAN’s expereinced lobby team works in conjunction with outside counsel to track bills which might affect the retail industry such as business taxes, employer/employee issues, wages, health insurance, technology, pharmacy, energy, and organized retail theft legislation to name a few. RAN’s work continues in off-session years to make sure the retail industry’s interests are always top of mind for policy makers.
