Governor Sisolak releases statement on Assembly Bill 486

Carson City, NV - May 20, 2021

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement on Assembly Bill 486, which revises provisions related to evictions proceedings in the State.

“Throughout the pandemic, the State has prioritized helping Nevadans stay in their homes by enacting an eviction moratorium, setting up rental assistance programs and working with the State Supreme Court on an evictions mediation program. In late March, I extended the eviction moratorium for a final time and promised to work with the Legislature toward a solution that will help both landlords and tenants as we approach the end of the moratorium.

This proposed legislation will help ensure federal rental assistance makes its way to the tenants and landlords who need it and will also provide an opportunity for eligible small landlords to apply for and access rental assistance directly. I want to thank the Legislature for their partnership in bringing this critical legislation forward.”
