Gov. Sisolak released the Proclamation calling for the special legislative session. It appears gun control is not on the menu. Special sessions are limited to specific topics, in this case COVID-19 funding. Here's what it says it's for:
1. Reducing, reserving, or cancelling certain general fund appropriations made during the 80th Session of the Nevada Legislature to fund operating budgets.
2. Amendments to Nevada Revised Statutes § 362.100 et seq. to accelerate and advance the payment schedule of the tax on the net proceeds of minerals
3. Transfers to the State General Fund certain amounts from certain funds and accounts including, but not limited to, the Healthy Nevada Fund.
4. Providing flexibility for the Department of Health and Human Services to transfer funds among various accounts in the same manner and limits as allowed for work programs under NRS 353.220. S. Providing flexibility for restoration of programs, services and any other reductions approved in the special session in the event Nevada receives federal funding to assist with the impact on the state budget caused by the COVED-19 pandemic.
6. Any other actions directly related to solutions for the projected general fund
revenue shortfall for the current biennium.
7. Amendments to Chapter 388G to allow local school districts to carry forward year-end balances to the following school year.
B. Amendments to Chapter 396 of Nevada Revised Statutes governing the Millennium Scholarship to authorize the Nevada Board of Regents to implement temporary waivers or modifications of the continuing eligibility requirements for recipients of the Millennium Scholarship during the period of the COVED-19 emergency. Require the submission of a report to the Governor and the Director of the Nevada Legislative Counsel Bureau no later than February 1, 2021, setting forth in detail any temporary actions taken by the Board of Regents and the impact of such actions on Millennium Scholarship recipients.
