Legislative Session Ends After 120-Day Session

Posted: Updated:
The 2015 legislative session wrapped up at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, and the final hours were more noteworthy for what didn't pass than what did. 

Governor Sandoval's budget did pass. The last budget bill was passed by the assembly with a 34-6 vote. Also passed was AB394, which creates a panel to explore breaking up the Clark County School District. 

But other highly debated and controversial bills expired without a vote. Among these were AB405, the parental notification bill, and AB487, the campus carry bill.

There was also no vote on SB421, the effort to change Nevada's presidential caucus to a primary.

Governor Sandoval released the following statement after the Nevada State Legislature concluded its 78th session:

“Over the past 120 days, representatives from across Nevada have worked tirelessly to set Nevada on a new course toward prosperity and opportunity. This session we enacted generational reforms that will transform the way we deliver education, made an unprecedented investment in our public education system, and implemented policies that will further propel our economic recovery. Most importantly, we have demonstrated that Nevada is ready to lead,” said Governor Brian Sandoval.  “I would like to thank Legislative Leadership and the members of the Nevada State Legislature for their commitment to our state and for their tireless work.  I would especially like to recognize Minority Leader Marilyn Kirkpatrick and Assemblyman Harvey Munford who completed their final term this session.  Assemblywoman Kirkpatrick has been a champion of working Nevadans and sound public policy. Assemblyman Munford has always been a friend to my office and I thank him for his support throughout the years. The efforts of the 2015 Legislature will be remembered as a proud chapter of the Nevada story. The legacy left by this body has laid the foundation for the New Nevada which will improve our state for generations to come.”
