Major advances on clean energy in 2019 Legislature

"The bill raising the renewable portfolio standard; that got unanimous support," said Assemblyman Howard Watts, District 15. "So I'm really excited to see clean energy is something people support across the aisle; there's not that partisan divide you may see on other issues."

Watts introduced a bill to promote the use of electric vehicles.

"We have electric vehicle producers here in Nevada so there's economic development benefits, the benefit to our environment and the benefits to our health," Watts said. "Because not only is transportation polluting for the environment, but it's also linked to asthma and other health ailments, so I think this a win all around."
