    About one-third of the way through the 120-day biennial legislative session, lawmakers have introduced dozens of bills affecting the management of water, wildlife and the environment. In this week’s newsletter, we break down some of the major bills pending before state lawmakers. 
    It’s important to note that this list is hardly exhaustive and state lawmakers still have additional opportunities to introduce new bills, even as a major deadline looms next week. This list also does not include several energy-related bills, which I’ll write more about in a future newsletter. 
    But this roundup will hopefully provide some insight into what’s at stake as lawmakers propose a range of policies, from prohibiting the sale of certain products that contain “forever chemicals” to giving the Southern Nevada Water Authority the power to curb excessive water use during Colorado River shortages.

    Bill introductions during floor sessions on the first major deadline of the legislative session wrapped up around 3:15 p.m. March 20.

    Though the 2024 midterms remain more than 600 days away, early Republican campaign attacks against Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV)  — a swing-state Democrat up for re-election in 2024 —  are centering around a proposed new rule from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for Medicare Advantage, the capitated Medicare Part C program created in the 1990s that pays private insurers to cover seniors’ health care benefits. Ten days after the State of the Union, the National Republican Senatorial Committee came out with a new ad targeting Rosen over Medicare.

    Having reliable Internet access is regarded as a basic necessity these days, but in remote rural areas, it is still difficult to get access. According to the Federal Communications Commission, “In rural areas, nearly one-fourth of the population —14.5 million people—lack access to this service.”
    On March 20, Humboldt County Librarian Jessica Anderson asked the Humboldt County Board of Commissioners to approve a request for a project that would give fiber Internet access to the McDermitt and Denio library branches. The request was approved in a split-vote, (4-1) with Commissioner Tom Hoss in opposition.
