Governor Brian Sandoval today signed 71 bills into law and vetoed 7. The approved measures include an appropriation of $20 million to continue funding the Millennium Scholarship, a bill requiring rape kits to be tested within 150 days, and the creation of the Nevada Promise Scholarship.

Senate Bill 529

Is a supplemental appropriations bill for more than $2.4 million to the Division of Emergency Management for costs associated with emergency responses to major flood events in Washoe, Elko, and Douglas Counties and Carson City.

Assembly Bill 498

Appropriates more than $350,000 to cover the costs associated with the Division of Emergency Management establishing a joint field office to work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency during the major flood events during 2017.

Assembly Bill 511

Is an Executive Agency budget bill and was introduced during Governor Sandoval’s State of the State address. AB511 provides $20 million to keep the promise of the Millennium Scholarship for Nevada students.

Assembly Bill 97

Requires law enforcement agencies to turn over sexual assault forensic kits for texting within 30 days and requires the lab to test the kits within 120 days upon receiving them. AB97 appropriates $3 million to the Nevada Attorney General to enter into inter-local agreements to help pay for the costs associated with testing. This law is aimed at ensuring a backlog of the kits does not develop in Nevada again.

Senate Bill 192

Was sponsored by Assemblywoman Amber Joiner and expands the hours of operation for mobile units operated by the Division of Public and Behavioral Health to provide mental health services in Clark and Washoe County. The bill requires mobile units to be available from 8 a.m. – 12 a.m., 7 days a week.

Senate Bill 391

Established the “Nevada Promise Scholarships” as sponsored by Senator Mo Denis. This is aligned with the Governor’s vision of ensuring more of Nevada’s students are on a path to a post-secondary credential or degree.
