Gov. Sandoval signs veteran-related bills into law

Gov. Brian Sandoval signed four veteran-related bills into law Monday after a Memorial Day ceremony in Boulder City.

“It’s always been my goal to be the most veteran- and military-friendly state in the country,” he said after the signings.

He signed the bills at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery after delivering a speech at the Memorial Day ceremony on the grounds.

The governor signed:

  • Senate Bill 33, which prohibits the foreclosure of property owned by military members or their dependents in certain cases.
  • Assembly Bill 337, which provides employment protections for National Guard members.
  • Senate Bill 141, which allows veterans with a qualifying service-connected disability to obtain a special license plate with a handicap symbol under certain circumstances.
  • Senate Bill 191, which establishes a standard for evidence of eligibility for veterans benefits.
