CARSON CITY (KTNV/AP) — Nevada's new governor, Steve Sisolak, completed his first State of the State address on Wednesday night in Carson City.

Nevada's first Democratic governor in two decades outlined his blueprint for the state's future and celebrated the historic gathering of the first state Legislature in U.S. history with a female-majority.

Gov. Sisolak used his first State of the State address to call for a round of applause to all the women who made history in Nevada's capital.

The Democrat called Nevada's female-majority Legislature a milestone "that's been generations in the making."

Sisolak also acknowledged Nevada's growing economy and says he wants to ensure that families who haven't felt the economic recovery and are still working to make ends meet share in the state's prosperity.
