      LEGISLATIVE UPDATE
      April 24, 2017
      Today marks day 78 of the 120 day legislative session.
      The bills have passed of their respective Committees. There is another deadline set for tomorrow, April
      25. This requires all these bills to now pass out of their respective houses and be sent to the other
      house for review. As you know, some bills are exempt from this process.
      Assembly Bill 302 – As you are aware this is the attempt to move Parole and Probation over to the
      Department of Corrections. This bill is sponsored by Assemblyman Steve Yeager, Assembly Speaker
      Jason Frierson, and Assemblyman James Ohrenshall. This bill passed out of Committee last Friday.
      This bill has a very large fiscal note attached. Assemblyman Frierson contacted Rick recently and
      advised him that he is pulling the bill from the calendar and will, instead submit the issue to an internal
      staff study after the session is over. This will give PNP an opportunity to continue their outstanding
      work and show the sponsors of this bill that things have indeed changed. The bill was amended and
      was made to become effective July 1, 2019.
      Senate Bill 403 – This bill is for the increase of pay for NHP troopers. The appropriations would come
      from the State Highway Fund as well as the State General Fund. This increase would also be on top of
      the 4% increase the Governor has requested for all state employees. A hearing for this bill has yet to be
      set. The bill has been granted a status of “exempt”. This means it is not subject to the April 14
      deadline and can be heard at a later date. Rick and I met with both Senator Manendo and Senator Ford
      to determine whether NHP can still get a raise based on the 1300 series. This series was established
      through Human Resources and places all state jobs in their respected series in accordance to the job
      classification. State law enforcement falls under the “1300 series”. Interestingly enough, so does the
      NDOC as well as every other DPS officer. It has been traditional for raises to be given to all groups in a
      series. What is unclear, is the issue, does that series include the entire state set or just series specific to
      a single category such as DPS Officer II. May 1, 2017 will present an Economic Forum to see how the
      state budget changes. We have information that a considerable amount of money may be added to the
      current budget. We hope grab some of that for our members.
      Senate Bill 486 – This will allow state employees, including law enforcement, to have collective
      bargaining. This bill was heard on April 7, and both Rick and I testified in favor for this bill. The bill
      was heard today in a work session and passed. Senator Settelmeyer was the only no vote for the bill.
      We are still doing what we can.
      Senate Bill 282 - This bill was written as such to dismiss all disciplinary case against a law
      enforcement officer if the employer violates the officer’s NRS 289 rights. Furthermore, the bill requires
      the employer to pay the officer’s attorney fees and costs in a successfully litigated case for such NRS
      289 violations. This bill was passed out of its Committee with the removal of the clause that an
      employee may be able to be compensated for their attorney costs should the win their case.
    • Senate Bill 465 – This bill will permit state employees to elect to have their grievances reviewed by
      either the Employee Management Committee, (EMC) or by an arbitrator selected from the Federal
      Mediation and Conciliation Service. The EMC is free of charge but the cost of an arbitrator would be
      split by the employee and the state. The practice now is to have all grievances not dealing with
      suspension, demotion, or termination must be heard by the EMC. This bill passed its work session
      today. Again Senator Settelmeyer and Senator Gansert voted to reject it. This is one of those bill that
      has an exemption attached to it.
      Assembly Bill 478 – This would require that an investigation into a state employee’s alleged
      misconduct must commence within 20 days after the date on which the agency becomes aware of any
      allegations of misconduct against an employee. In cases of suspension, demotion or dismissal. The
      agency must interview the employee and all potential witnesses. It would also require the employee to
      be notified of the allegations before the investigation commences. The bill would also require the
      agency to notify the employee of any requested extensions of the 90 day time limits to complete the
      investigation and allow the employee the opportunity to receive the investigative file before the pre-
      disciplinary hearing. This bill was heard and later received a work session through which it passed.
      This bill also has an exception placed on it.
      Assembly Bill 301 – This bill provides for the confidentiality of certain communications between
      public safety personnel and trained peer support personnel. This bill is long over-due and having the
      ability of our members to communicate with these crisis counselors have proven time and time again to
      save lives. The bill is defined and allows the communications to be confidential and cannot be
      disclosed except upon certain restricted reasons Rick and I testified in large support of this bill. The
      bill has been heard and has passed its work session. This bill is also on today’s agenda for passage
      through the Assembly.
      Assembly Bill 132 – This bill provides for enhanced penalties for persons committing assault or
      battery upon civilian employees and volunteers of law enforcement agencies. We testified and
      supported this bill. It passed through the Assembly and will receive a second reading.
      Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR 6) – This was sponsored by Assemblyman Ellison and direct
      the Legislative Commission to conduct an interim study over the next two years to evaluate a pay
      increase for state employees. We obviously testified in favor of this Resolution.
      We greatly appreciate your support. I would also ask that if you oppose or support a bill, please be
      respectful to those who may stand opposite of your views.
