Nevada now ranks as first US assembly with majority women legislature

Nevada is now the first ever state in United States with a legislature comprised of female majority. This declaration was confirmed on Tuesday after the Las Vegas county officials appointed 2 women for the vacancies present in state assembly.

The appointment of Beatrice “Bea” Angela Duran and Rochelle Thuy Nguyen marked the female members taking up 51 percent of the legislative seats at the Las Vegas-area out of a total 63 seats. Women will take up 9 from the 21 seats at state senate which falls short of majority in the chamber. However, the women members will occupy 24 from the 42 available seats in assembly which goes up to 57 percent. This makes the average of these two chambers provide overall majority for the female members.

No state elsewhere ever had female-majority in the overall scenario or for that matter 5o percent of the overall, as confirmed by Center for American Women and Politics working at the Rutgers University tracking the political representation of women in the area. Women opted for seats in Nevada assembly as well as the senate during 2018 November elections. However, they fell short from the overall majority.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
