Lawmakers Vet Bill Easing Regulations for Fire Responders

Posted: Updated:
Nevada lawmakers are reviewing a measure that would make it easier for out-of-state companies to respond to wildfires and other natural emergencies.

The Assembly Judiciary Committee reviewed Senate Bill 36 on Thursday. The bill passed unanimously out of the Senate earlier in April.

The measure would allow out-of-state companies responding to a natural disaster in Nevada to forego obtaining and paying for a state business license. 

The bill would allow businesses on a short-term basis to provide vehicles or equipment to combat floods, forest fires and other natural disasters on state land without a business license.

Supporters said the measure would make it easier for responders to react to natural disasters without having to pay a $200 fee to obtain a business license.

The committee took no action on the bill. (AP)
