On healthcare . . .
In a 2017 conversation with KNPR, Dina discuss her views on the ACA. She said, “One thing we need to look at is perhaps providing Medicare expansion so that can be the equivalent of a public option,” she said, “If there are any areas where there aren’t any companies that want to provide health insurance, you can buy it through Medicare.”
On the environment . . .
In a press release regarding the Congestions Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Modernization Act, Dina wrote, “I’m introducing this legislation to improve the air quality in communities like Clark County. Reducing air pollution can be the difference between life and death – especially among COVID-19 patients and some of our most vulnerable citizens. We need to update this vital program to make sure that it targets the communities that need the most relief.”

Dina is a strong advocate for teachers and public schools. For example, she recently introduced legislation requesting additional aid for Nevada's schools
