Nevada Special Session Ends After Passing COVID-19 Liability Bill
The 32nd Special Legislative Session adjourned shortly after midnight and the final bills have gone to Gov. Steve Sisolak for his signature.
Lawmakers wrapped up the state’s latest special session with a deeply divisive amendment.
This amendment cuts schools and hospitals out of a bill to protect business owners from coronavirus related employee lawsuits.
Other issues were also addressed such as police reform, voting rights, more flexibility with Nevada’s unemployment benefits, alternative dispute resolution for rental evictions and a dire budget shortfall as a result of the pandemic.
Legislators appropriated $410,000 from the general fund to pay for the six day session.
