College tuition bill on its way to Nevada governor

CARSON CITY — The Nevada Senate gave final legislative approval Tuesday to a bill requiring the Nevada System of Higher Education to pay undergraduate fees and expenses for any dependent child of a public employee killed on the job.

Assembly Bill 1 now goes to Gov. Brian Sandoval after it was unanimously approved in both chambers.

Provisions of the bill are retroactive to Oct. 1, 2013, allowing dependent children of a public employee killed on the job since then to be reimbursed for expenses already incurred.
