Governor Steve Sisolak on Wednesday signed a bill into law that revises provisions governing weight and length limits on certain cars.

Assembly Bill 377, sponsored by Assemblyman Howard Watts III, would bring Nevada law into line with new federal guidelines by allowing electric-powered semi-trucks, among others, to be exempted from certain weight limits on state roads. This allows these new technologies to compete alongside their traditional diesel-powered counterparts.

The bill passed 39 to 1 in the Assembly and 20 to 1 in the Nevada Senate.
