AB99- has been hijacked by the Democrats. Instead of stopping the Taxpayer Rip-off of Prevailing Wage, AB99 has lowered the threshold from $100,000 to $2,000 and now requires the Nevada System of Higher Education (colleges & universities) to pay prevailing wages (exorbitant union wages) on essentially all jobs. This is a payoff to unions for Democrat votes.

SB 267 – requiring the Department of Taxation to develop a survey to collect data and information concerning diversity and equality in the workplace; requiring corporations in this State that employ 500 or more people to use the survey to submit annual reports to the Department; requiring such a corporation that has an Internet website to make its reports available on the website; requiring the Department to make the survey, the annual reports submitted to the Department and aggregate data relating to such reports available on its Internet website; requiring the Department to submit an annual report to the Governor and the Director of the Legislative Counsel Bureau and make the report available on its Internet website; authorizing the Department to adopt regulations; requiring the Nevada Commission on Minority Affairs and the Nevada Commission for Women To assist the Department in developing the survey
This bill would essentially create quotas that corporations in the state have to follow for diversity. No longer will the best, most qualified candidates be accepted for the job as diversity standards mandated by the state government would take precedence over.

AB 380 – declaring the policy of this State concerning statewide reductions in net greenhouse gas emissions; requiring a gas utility to submit at certain times an Infrastructure, Supply and Alternatives Plan; allowing for an accelerated cost recovery for certain infrastructure replacement projects; requiring the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada to convene a public hearing on the Plan and to comply with certain requirements for such a hearing; requiring that all prudent and reasonable expenditures made by a gas utility to develop the Plan be recovered from rates charged to the customers of the gas utility; requiring the Commission to open an investigatory docket to examine the role of gas utilities in assisting the State in achieving its goal of reducing net greenhouse gas emission; requiring the Commission to prepare a report from the investigatory docket and transmit the report to the next regularly scheduled Legislative Session; repealing provisions authorizing a public natural gas utility to expand its infrastructure in certain situations
This bill would negatively impact Nevada’s energy consumers and even limit the right to choose the energy source that best works for them. This bill looks to impose restrictions and even goes as far to eliminate the use of gas appliances, furnaces, and various other residential and commercial applications in the state.

Committee: Assembly Legislative Operations & Elections
AB 432 – providing that certain agencies of the Executive Department of the State Government are automatic voter registration agencies; authorizing the Governor to designate additional state agencies and certain tribal agencies as automatic voter registration agencies; setting forth the requirements for an automatic voter registration agency to transmit certain voter registration information to the Secretary of State and county clerks; making various changes to the existing automatic voter registration process;
This bill would create more automatic voter registration entities including:
  • Department of Motor Vehicles
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • Agencies designated by the Department of Health and Human Services and Health Services to receive applications for Medicaid
  • Silver State Health Insurance Exchange
We have seen that the DMV voter registration is a mess! Why expand this to other agencies?
