The legislation broadens the definition of who qualifies as a lobbyist and aims to increase transparency surrounding development and construction projects. Scott Shafer talks with City Attorney Herrera about the proposed law as well as recent inquiries into alleged "patient dumping" by a Nevada hospital.
