Health Law Faculty Spotlight: Returning to Legislative Service

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

In November, and twelve years after stepping down from the Indiana House of Representatives, Dr. David Orentlicher was elected for a two-year term to the Nevada Assembly. He represents District 20, which lies just to the east of the UNLV campus. His committee assignments include Health and Human Services, Judiciary, and Revenue, and he is working this month on bill proposals on matters of public health and health care system reform. He also expects to sponsor legislation on criminal justice reform. Nevada's legislature meets part-time and every other year, so Dr. O will be able to continue teaching his usual course offerings every year.
