Special Session Over With Five Bills Passed

By  | 

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Sleep-deprived Nevada lawmakers quickly passed all five bills they had to deal with in a special session called overnight by Gov. Brian Sandoval.

The Republican ordered the session before dawn Tuesday after lawmakers failed to take final action on a handful of measures in the four-month regulation session that ended just hours earlier at midnight.

Legislators passed measures dealing with more police officers in Clark County, which includes Las Vegas, class-size reduction, charter schools, tax abatements for new businesses and money for a scholarship fund.
