Rockin'. Reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
The Clark County Commission on Tuesday appointed two women to fill vacant seats in the state Assembly, making Nevada the first state in the country with a majority-female Legislature.
Attorney Rochelle Thuy Nguyen and Beatrice Angela Duran, a Culinary Local 226 grievance specialist, both backed by the Assembly’s Democratic caucus, were appointed to fill vacancies in districts 10 and 11, respectively, in Las Vegas.
The appointments raise the number of assemblywomen in the state Legislature to 23 and the total number of female lawmakers to 32, including nine senators in the 63-member body.
In Illinois, women make up 36.5 percent of the state Legislature in 2018.
