As it is currently written, we oppose SB193. We do strongly support the removal of the daily overtime requirement, but not when combined with an increase in the minimum wage. This increase in the minimum wage would be harmful for entry-level and low-skill workers.
To pitch his plan for a modified version of the margin tax before the Nevada Legislature, Gov. Brian Sandoval invited former governors Robert List, Richard Bryan and Bob Miller to sit before the Senate and Assembly Taxation Committees, meeting jointly.
We strongly support AB182. This an excellent bill full of common-sense reforms that will create a better balance of power between taxpayers and elected officials and unionized local government employees.
