Prior to the adjournment of the Assembly, Minority Leader P.K. O’Neill paid his respects to “The Gipper” and called on the legislators to follow Reagan’s principles of limited government by “removing barriers” for Nevadan’s. President Reagan famously stated, “Man is not free unless government is limited.”
