CANDIDATE BACKGROUND

Representative Dina Titus is running for her seventh term to represent Nevada’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, and previously represented the 3rd Congressional District from one term from 2009 to 2010. Prior to her election to Congress, Titus served in the Nevada State Senate for twenty years and taught political science at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for thirty years. 

Titus has been a longtime leader in public lands conservation and environmental justice. She is a strong advocate for the EPA’s Clean Power Plan and other efforts to reduce carbon pollution. She has worked to develop clean energy and build Nevada’s clean energy economy, co-sponsoring a number of bills to encourage renewable energy development, especially solar. Titus has also been supportive of protecting public lands in Nevada, including the recently protected Basin and Range National Monument and proposing legislation to protect Gold Butte. Titus is leading the fight in Congress to prevent Nevada from becoming the dumping ground for the nation’s nuclear waste. As part of her efforts to block any effort to revitalize Yucca Mountain, Titus has introduced the Nuclear Waste Informed Consent Act which would prohibit the U.S. Department of Energy from establishing a nuclear waste dump without the consent of locally impacted communities, governments, and tribes. In 2023, Titus was proud to celebrate the designation of Avi Kwa Ame National Monument after she introduced legislation to protect this sacred land. Representative Titus has earned an impressive 96% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard. Representative Titus is endorsed by NRDC Action Fund.
