Congress sent President Joe Biden legislation to curb gun violence, including a provision introduced as a separate bill by Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV) last year that would provide funding for community violence intervention programs.
The House approved the $13 billion bill — the first time Congress has passed gun control legislation since the now-expired 1994 assault weapons ban was enacted — Friday on a 234 to 193 vote, with all but 14 Republicans opposing the package. Nevada’s House Democrats backed it, while Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV) voted against the measure.

“National Republicans know that their path to controlling the House runs through District One, and this result sends a clear message that the people of Southern Nevada will not be divided,” Titus said in a statement. “This is the most crucial election of our lifetimes.

Horsford joined U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge on Monday to tour affordable housing complexes in Southern Nevada and speak on federal initiatives being used to combat the housing crisis.
And Horsford said some of the rising cost of housing is the result of corporate investors. “I have no problem with some level of adjustments that are reasonable and fair,” Horsford said. “I have a big problem with corporate investors that are gouging consumers and my constituents in the name of profit at a time when we are trying to recover.”

“We have made significant progress in the last decade in clean energy generation; however, we are simply not doing enough to incentivize investments for the required transmission capacity,” Horsford wrote. “Tax incentives have proven to be a major signal to investors to put their capital behind wind, solar and geothermal. We should encourage the same type of growth for the infrastructure that will deliver the power from these resources to market.”
Developing Nevada’s rural solar and geothermal resources, Horsford said, would create jobs and accelerate the state’s economic recovery and help the state achieve its clean energy goals. That development, however, depends on strong electric transmission infrastructure.
