Nevada - Sisolak signs much-debated 'Right to Return' legislation, other progressive bills

Gov. Steve Sisolak signed legislation on Tuesday that guarantees the rights of laid-off gaming and tourism industry workers to return to their jobs.

Sisolak’s signature on SB386, referred to as the “Right to Return” bill, came without any fanfare and was announced alongside a host of other bills that earned the governor’s written seal of approval on Tuesday. Sisolak held signing ceremonies for 10 bills, many of which were related to women’s health and criminal or social justice reform. He also signed 28 other bills, including SB386, into law on Tuesday.

Gaming representatives and the Culinary Union struck a deal on the high-profile worker rights legislation with less than a week left in the 120-day legislative session, agreeing to limit the scope of the bill and exempting certain employee classes including managers and stage performers.

Every vote on SB386 was on a straight party line with Democrats in support and Republicans opposed.

Nevada SB190 allows women to obtain birth control at a pharmacy without a doctor’s visit.

AB116 decriminalizes minor traffic violations. This prevents people from being arrested for unpaid traffic fines, a common gateway to the carceral criminal justice system for the poor and working class. Nevada was one of 13 states that still did this...now it's twelve.

AB404 shields applicants for domestic violence-related temporary or extended protection orders from having to disclose their addresses or contact information in certain circumstances.
