Governor Sandoval Signs Additional Legislation Into Law

Posted: Updated:
From the Office of Governor Brian Sandoval:

Governor Brian Sandoval signed 27 pieces of legislation from the 78th legislative session into law today.  

Highlights of the today's signed legislation include:

Assembly Bill 128: This bill provides for a simplified power of attorney document for health care for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The form created by this measure enables adults 18 years and older with intellectual disabilities to receive assistance in making medical decisions without having to submit to formal guardianship proceedings.  AB 128 allows parents or guardians to assist their children with intellectual disabilities in understanding their decisions while enabling physicians to feel more confident that the person with an intellectual disability understands what he or she is signing. This measure was supported by the Nevada Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities.  

Assembly Bill 198:  This bill requires the Legislative Committee on Public Lands to conduct a study concerning water conservation and alternative sources of water for Nevada communities. The measure will likely coincide with the Governor's established Nevada Drought Forum.

Senate Bill 225: This bill prohibits selling vapor products (including e-cigarettes) and alternative nicotine products to children under 18 years old and also places the regulation of such products under the Nevada Attorney General's Office.  

Senate Bill 229:  This bill provides for the issuance of special license plates indicating support for the Second Amendment.  The fees generated by the plates will be for the benefit of the Nevada Firearms Coalition or its successor and are to be used to fund firearm training or firearm safety education.  The plates must first be approved by the Commission on Special License plates and will not be issued until one of the 30 design slots becomes available.  

Senate Bill 431: This bill authorizes the Nevada Supreme Court to enter into a 25-year contract for office space in Clark County not to exceed $19,493,635, exclusive of operating and maintenance costs. A 24,000 square foot building adjacent to the federal court building will be leased to the Nevada Supreme Court and the new Court of Appeals. This move will allow justices to hold oral arguments in Southern Nevada where over 60 percent of the appeals originate.
