In 2017, Nevada became the 36th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, which guarantees equal rights to women. It first passed Congress in 1972. Illinois (2018) and Virginia (2020) have since ratified the amendment, giving it the 38 states required for adoption. Stay tuned.

The 18th Amendment, which banned alcohol, was unpopular with many Americans, and Nevadans were no exception. Reno Mayor E.E. Roberts declared if he had his way, there would be a barrel of whiskey on every street corner. The 18th amendment was repealed by the 21st Amendment.

The 13th Amendment, which banned slavery, helped usher Nevada into the Union as the 36th state. Abraham Lincoln wanted to ensure he had enough votes in Congress to pass the amendment and pushed for Nevada’s admission, despite the state’s relatively low population of 40,000.

Six Founding Fathers signed both the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the Constitution in 1787. One name stands out – Benjamin Franklin. The others were George Clymer, Robert Morris, George Read, James Wilson and Roger Sherman.

Their input will help make our updates to the current standards & subsequent guidance even better. For all Nevadans of faith, including myself, this has been a difficult period. I’m committed to determining best methods for expanding in-person services in the safest way possible.

These leaders, representing multiple faiths, shared best practices on social distancing, connecting with congregants & protocols for safe in-person services. A theme was clear: “We want to be good neighbors.” I’m so grateful for their leadership.
