CARSON CITY, NV - May 17, 2023
Today, Governor Joe Lombardo vetoed SB171, AB354, and AB355, which arrived to his desk on Monday, following votes in the Senate and Assembly on party lines. The Office of the Governor returned the bills, along with letters from Governor Lombardo explaining his veto justification, to the Senate and Assembly this morning.
“I will not support legislation that infringes on the constitutional rights of Nevadans,” said Governor Joe Lombardo. “As I stated in my letters, much of the legislation I vetoed today is in direct conflict with legal precedent and established constitutional protections. Therefore, I cannot support them.”
Governor Lombardo’s letters to Speaker Steve Yeager and Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro are attached.
