Edgar Flores, Chair of the Nevada Hispanic Legislative Caucus, said, “Our community is powerful, resourceful and resilient. We will make sure our community is well informed about COVID-19 and the changing landscape.  I have asked Assemblywoman Torres to lead these efforts and I have full confidence that we’ve assembled the right team for the job.
