CARSON CITY, NV - June 12, 2019

Today, Governor Steve Sisolak signed 75 bills, including landmark measures from the 80th legislative session that raise Nevada’s minimum wage, guarantee paid sick days for Nevada workers, and secure collective bargaining rights for state employees for the first time in Nevada history.

Assembly Bill 456 raises the minimum wage in Nevada by 75 cents each year beginning on January 1, 2020 until it reaches $12 an hour. This bill represents the first significant change to Nevada’s minimum wage in over a decade.

Senate Bill 312 requires businesses that employ 50 or more workers to allow workers to accrue earned paid leave, up to 40 hours per year at a minimum.

Senate Bill 135 gives state workers a seat at the table for the first time in Nevada history by empowering them to collectively bargain, a commitment Gov. Sisolak made in his State of the State address.
