It is not all that expensive. Our utility bill runs from $200 to $500 during the year. The big bills are high summer and mid winter. I do not think gas helps with the high summer bill.
I respectfully disagree as I use the dryer quite a bit. Water usage etc. It would make a huge difference for me and a lot of other people.

Nothing is wrong with it. If you don't have an ID for some reason, some places will allow you to use a utility bill or the such to prove who you are. Some type of identification is better than nothing. Just walking up to vote with no safeguards in place is making it EASIER to commit fraud. They claim checks further down the line will catch fraud. I can imagine those "checks" are fallible.

AC is the question. 3000SF homes often do $300 to $400 for AC alone in the high summer.

I would be sure you save some money with gas do to the other stuff. But that is under $200 a month for the electric so I do not see any huge savings for gas. I would take it if I could get it but the last price to hook up to gas here was $12.000 to get it to the property and then a good bit more to get where needed and replacing electric devices with gas..

Of course if you don't already have gas service that's understandable, as it would be cost prohibitive to bring it in. But for those of us who do have gas already, it's a no brainer to use gas.

Yes, I was being sarcastic but with little success. I firmly believe in proper ID for voting. Its just good common sense. You need ID for every other thing but not for voting? Bad idea.

Actually federal ID has always been beaten off by the right as too infringing on the right to privacy.

Nothing hard about it. Give all legals a passport or an equivalent document. But it is always resisted.

Why? There is very little evidence that supports any significant voter fraud. I’d suggest we start to focus on holding the politicians that are elected accountable for actually getting bills passed and legislation enacted than continue to entertain this false narrative that was based on a lie.

Federal ID will be implemented soon, but it will be called Vaccine Passport.

Glad to see these bills have died for this session:

Assembly Bill 380 initially would have required incremental decreases in natural gas use in buildings in Nevada

Senate Bill 367 would have added a 9 percent live entertainment tax to tickets for games played by the Raiders, Golden Knights and Aces
There should have been a few more that died, but we'll see what the final outcome will be in June.
