Republican leaders in the U.S. House have pulled the American Health Care Act from the floor after failing to round up enough votes within their own caucus.

Had the bill passed, Americans would have no longer been required to buy health insurance, and it would have eliminated the current subsidies that are used to bring down the cost of premiums.

NPR and dozens of member stations collected public statements from members of Congress to help the public understand where lawmakers stood on this issue.

House Republicans have recently rolled out their much anticipated proposal to change the Affordable Care Act. At this point, it’s unclear if it’ll pass.  

To understand the potential impact of the proposal on Nevadans, Reno Public Radio’s Anh has been talking with people in the community to see how Obamacare has already been affecting health care providers and local businesses. News Director Michelle Billman sits down with Gray to learn what people have been saying.

Women working full-time in Nevada are making less than 82 percent of their male counterparts. That’s according to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick explores why.

Between 2014 and 2015, the ratio of women’s earnings compared to men’s dropped by more than four percentage points. Nevada women are now making just 81.6 percent of men.

That’s a departure from the peak of 88.4 percent in 2011.
