Nevada makes U.S. history with first-ever female-majority state Legislature

Nevada will seat the nation’s first-ever female-majority Legislature in February.

The Clark County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday sealed the historic feat with the appointment of two women to fill recently vacated Las Vegas-area Assembly seats.

Beatrice Duran, a grievance specialist with the politically powerful Culinary Union Local 226, will represent the District 11 seat won by Assemblywoman Olivia Diaz in November. Diaz ditched her seat in District 11 to make a run for a soon-to-be empty spot on the Las Vegas City Council.

Rochelle Nguyen, a Las Vegas attorney, will take over for outgoing Assemblyman Chris Brooks in District 10. Both appointments were supported by the Nevada Assembly Democratic Caucus.
