Nevada Senate Bill Would Give Elected County Officials 3% Raises

Posted: Updated:
Nevada lawmakers are reviewing a bill that calls for giving elected county officers 3% raises for each of the next four years.

The Assembly Government Affairs Committee held a hearing Monday on Senate Bill 482, which unanimously passed the Senate earlier this month.

The bill would give raises to elected officials including sheriffs, district attorneys, clerks and county commissioners. It would also give those officers the option to refuse any part of their salaries.

Representatives from the Nevada Association of Counties said the last time a four-year salary bill passed was in 2007.

Police union representative Ron Dreher opposed the bill, saying it isn't wise to mandate salary increases in future years when budgets are uncertain. He also opposed guaranteed raises for elected officials but not other public employees.  (AP)
