State voiding lawmaker Michele Fiore's health care license

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - State officials say they're closing out Republican Assemblywoman Michele Fiore's license to operate a home health care business after they were unable to contact her.
Inspectors with the state Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance said they visited Fiore's Las Vegas-based business, Always There 4 You, on Tuesday and found another business moving in. They also said her office was inexplicably closed during a September visit and she didn't respond to a certified letter last month inquiring about its status.
Fiore issued a statement late Tuesday saying she decided to close the business because government red tape was making operations too difficult.
Political journalist Jon Ralston first reported the state's action.
Fiore filed initial paperwork Friday to run for Congress, but said Monday she's not totally sure she'll run.
