Below is a list of bills and bill drafts that we are tracking at the Nevada Press Association. We have two primary interests — open government (meetings, records and public notices) and the newspaper industry, when it may be affected by taxes, labor laws, advertising restrictions or similar matters.
We will try to keep the list updated as the session progresses. For the latest information, however, it is always best to visit the Legislative Counsel Bureau’s site to check on bills, as amendments may be offered and actions taken. In a 120-day session, changes can come up fast.
Bill draft requests, designated only by a number with no link, give only generic information about the request and, in most instances, language of the bill has not yet been drafted.
If you are aware of a bill not on this list that you think we should be following, please let us know.
