It’s Day 57 of the 2017 Legislative Session. Here’s what to watch for.
1. Money for Planned Parenthood. Sen. Yvanna Cancela, D-Las Vegas, wants to create an account in the state budget to give money to groups, including Planned Parenthood, for family planning services. SB122 is up in Senate Finance at 8 a.m.
2. Insurance mandates. SB436 would restrict how insurance companies could structure insurance plans and would increase premiums in its attempts to reduce out-of-pocket expenses for prescriptions. Senate Commerce, Labor and Energy is the bill sponsor and will hear the bill at 8 a.m.
3. Energy overflow. The Subcommittee on Energy of Assembly Commerce and Labor will hear six bills on renewable energy. This includes AB206, doubling Nevada’s renewable portfolio standard, AB270, reverting net metering back to the offers available in 2015, and AB452, requiring a study of energy choice. The meeting will start 20 minutes after Assembly Commerce and Labor concludes.
