US Senator Heller and Representative Dina Titus are the recipients of the 2016 “Champion of the 50+” legislative leadership award for their significant achievements during the 114 th Congress. Senator Heller and Congresswoman Titus received their awards for creating safe access to transportation options with their reintroduction of the Safe Streets Act, which ensures that streets and intersections are designed with adequate pedestrian safeguards in mind. The bill became law as a provision in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act ( FAST) Act. “The work Senator Heller and Representative Titus have done to ensure we can all walk, drive and ride safely will have tangible benefits for people of all ages, said Maria Dent, State Director of AARP Nevada. "Whether you’re a new parent with a baby in a stroller, a senior walking to the neighborhood store, or anyone using our public streets, this bipartisan work will pay dividends and make us safer for generations to come.”

She won as many fans with her warmth and wit as she did with her one-of-a-kind voice. She topped the charts as a solo performer and as half of one of the most famous duos in music history. She lit up the Steve Allen Show, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and countless stages around the world. To many Nevadans, Eydie Gorme was more than an iconic performer - she became a part of their own story. When Eydie passed away on August 10 and we shared this tribute from CBS News, many of our friends shared their own special memories.
