SANCTUARY STATE NEVADA AB376
A message from William J Stieren
Voters Matter AB376 which makes Nevada a Sanctuary State for illegal aliens. This law prohibits state and local law enforcement from cooperating in the enforcement of our laws on illegal immigration. It also creates a deceptively named “Task Force to Keep Nevada Working.”
A state or local law enforcement agency SHALL NOT inquire into or collect information relating to the immigration or citizenship status of a person or the place of birth of the person…and SHALL NOT provide federal immigration authorities with…information.
LINCOLN DAY DINNER 2021
South Point Hotel & Casino
Keynote Speaker: Former Nevada Lieutenant Governor
to register for the dinner.
If you have been following my updates since the start of the legislative session you may remember that we anticipated Democrats would try and make the provisions of AB 4 (ballot harvesting and universal mail voting) permanent for all elections. Well unfortunately, this did in fact come to fruition. Last week, Speaker Frierson introduced AB 321 which would codify bad bill AB 4 from the special session.
So, what can we do to stop this? We MUST ALL call and email every legislator telling them to vote no. Tell your neighbor, tell your coworkers, and tell your church group. The ONLY WAY we can defeat this bill is from the grassroots. Democrats stole our election in 2020 due to fraudulent mail in voting, don’t let them steal your grandkids elections with AB 321.
You can view the bill here.
Democrats passed AB 4 in the middle of the night during the special session. Now, Democrats don’t need to use the cover of night to pass bad bills. The 81st session has been remote only, locking the people out of the People’s House, and with rampant technical issues, Democrats now can pass bad bills whenever they want. DO NOT let Democrats steal your voice! Let the Democrat Leadership know that Nevadan’s want the Legislature open!

This week several great Republican bills were introduced to the legislature.
AB 263 - Requiring county and city clerks to audit the performance of persons who check voter signatures on absentee ballots, mailing ballots or mail ballots; setting forth certain requirements for signature verification devices. Read the bill here.
AB 328 - Authorizing a funeral director to notify the county clerk of the death of a person; requiring a county clerk to cancel the pre-registration or registration to vote for a person when notified by a funeral director that the person has died. Read the bill here.
AB 297 - Providing that a registrar of voters is an elected office. Provides that if a board of county commissioners has created the office of registrar of voters before January 1, 2022, a person who is a registrar of voters on January 1, 2022, may continue to serve in that office until the general election held in November 2022. In each county having a population of 100,000 or more, the board of county commissioners may create the office of registrar of voters, as an elected office and prescribe the qualifications, duties, and compensation of that office. The registrar of voters shall be elected by the qualified electors of the county, beginning at the general election immediately following the creation of the office of registrar of voters. The term of office of a registrar of voters is 4 years and begins on the first Monday in January following the general election.
Read the bill here.
SB 139 - force health insurance companies and Medicaid to cover “treatments” for people who wish to alter their voice and appearance to mimic the opposite sex or to present as “non-binary.” This includes experimental hormone therapies and surgeries on perfectly healthy body parts for Nevadans who suffer with “gender dysphoria” or “gender incongruence.” Read the bill here.
AB 286 - Prohibiting a person from possessing a firearm on a covered premises under certain circumstances; prohibiting a person from engaging in certain acts relating to unfinished frames or receivers under certain circumstances; prohibiting a person from engaging in certain acts relating to firearms which are not imprinted with a serial number under certain circumstances; revising provisions relating to the confiscation and disposal of dangerous weapons.
This bill looks to attack our 2nd amendment rights and would allow for government tracking of firearms (phase one of future gun confiscation), create a policy of three strikes and you lose your right to bear arms, prohibit people from manufacturing a gun without a serial number, and would make it illegal to carry a firearm in a public accommodation facility.
Bills We Need Heard
Now more than ever we need to have AB 134 heard in committee. This bill proposed by Assemblyman Matthews, Dickman, Hafen, Wheeler, Titus, and Senator Buck is a clean repeal of the provisions of AB 4. Mail voting is already banned in numerous countries, we cannot allow Democrats to declare an “emergency” every election in order to prompt the provisions of AB 4. Read the bill here.

CLARK COUNTY / NEVADA LEGISLATIVE ALERT
PROTECT VOTER INTEGRITY
We need your help!
AB321- Permanent Mail-In Ballots
A day after the Nevada Secretary of State’s office confirmed an investigation into numerous election integrity violations, Democrats in the State Legislature submitted a bill making permanent the controversial practice of sending mail-in ballots to all voters. Additionally, the bill permanently legalizes the practice of ballot harvesting with no new remedies to curb fraud and / or abuse.
WHAT ASSEMBLY BILL 321 WILL DO:
- Distributes to each active registered voter in the county a mail ballot for every election without individual voter request or consent
- Makes ballot harvesting permanent
- Mail ballots that are not postmarked can be received three days after election day and still be counted.
- Allows for people to help fill out the ballot for certain voters as long as a written statement is provided. Under the bill, a voter who is unable to read or write can have someone mark the ballot for them if they sign a written statement allowing someone to help them. The bill provides no mechanism for verification that the voter’s intent was accurately carried out.
- Fails to address any election integrity concerns from the last election
URGENT: WE NEED PEOPLE TO EMAIL AGAINST THIS BILL.
HELP PROTECT VOTER INTEGRITY!

One year ago today Governor Sisolak Shutdown our state… and Nevadans are still suffering from closures. Under Sisolak’s Shutdown we’ve seen:
Sisolak’s failed leadership is the perfect example of how BIG GOVERNMENT and unconstitutional mandates destroy the economy, the American dream, and LIMIT freedoms. SIGN THE PETITION HERE >>
Nevada’s unemployment has been an absolute disaster during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Governor Sisolak has done nothing to help. Instead, he was unprepared when it was time to roll out the vaccine, he’s left our great state closed -- and our families and businesses high and dry.
What King Sisolak still fails to see is that ALL Nevadans are essential. Your livelihood and business MATTER.
To be clear: Governor Steve Sisolak has failed Nevada and it’s time to reopen Nevada NOW.
The hardworking men and women of Nevada deserve so much more, and the current regime has made it clear that they’re not going to provide it. Join us in demanding that Sisolak REOPEN NEVADA NOW!
If we won’t fight for our great state, who will?
Together for Nevada,
The Nevada Republican Party

Republican Senators Plan to Vote
For the Most Radical State ERA anywhere in the Country
The following Republican Senators voted Yes on SJR8, the State ERA, in 2019 and are planning to vote Yes in 2021. Their excuse was that they didn’t want to be perceived as anti-woman and be vulnerable in their campaigns. They were not worried about the future of our children, especially our girls, tax funded abortions or the devastating effects of the State ERA. They must hear from you!
MESSAGE: SJR8*, the State ERA, is not pro woman. It is anti-family, anti-woman and especially anti-girl. We want you to vote NO on SJR8*. Girls will have to compete with biological males in sports which will ruin their chances for success and scholarships. Girls’ safety and privacy will be at risk in school bathrooms, locker rooms, showers and in motel rooms on trips when transgender biological boys use those facilities. Taxpayers will also be harmed because they will have to pay for abortions. Our religious liberty will be in jeopardy if we believe in traditional marriage. We are concerned that age of consent laws that protect children from sexual predators could be overturned in the name of equality. Please Vote NO on SJR8*. (Or better yet share your own message.)

Testimony on SJR8*, State ERA
What does "Equality under the law shall not be denied or abridged on account of …sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression or age…” really mean?
It is important that your Legislative Intent be established.
SJR8: “RESOLVED BY THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF 17 NEVADA, JOINTLY, That a new section, designated Section 24, be 18 added to Article 1 of the Nevada Constitution to read as follows: Sec. 24. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by this State or any of its political subdivisions on account of race, color, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, ancestry or national origin.”
· Sex? The New Mexico Supreme Court unanimously agreed that their state’s ERA language mandates Taxpayer funded Abortions. Connecticut’s State ERA also means taxpayer funding of abortions. . https://www.nrlc.org/federal/era/eraoped/ Is that your intent?
· Sexual Orientation? Does this mean that those whose religion does not accept homosexuality, lesbianism and same sex marriage will lose their Religious Liberty to practice their religion in their everyday lives, in their churches, businesses, jobs and homes and in teaching their children? Notice there is no protection of Religious Freedom. Is that your intent?
· Gender Identity or expression? Does this mean your child will lose their right to privacy and be forced to share bathrooms, showers, locker rooms and motel rooms on school trips with persons who claim “a particular gender identity or expression” which is not that of their birth? Will girl’s sports be taken over by those claiming to be girl’s as their identity? Will girls lose opportunities for sports achievement and scholarships? Is that your intent?
· Age? Will this amendment eliminate “age of consent” laws which now protect our vulnerable children from sexual predators? Will seniors lose special protections now afforded to them in law in order to make them equal? Is that your intent?
We must hear from you that these are or are not your Legislative intent. Thank you.
Constitutional Amendments must pass the Legislature twice
this passed in 2019) and then go on the ballot
