3 things to watch on Day 110 of the Nevada Legislature

Here are three things to watch on day 110 of the 2017 legislative session:

1. Second house passage. Non-exempt bills must receive passage from their second house by midnight, or they die. Expect a long and hectic day as the Nevada Legislature begins its final sprint to the finish.

2. Marijuana tax. The proposed 10 percent excise tax on retail marijuana sales makes up a key part of Gov. Brian Sandoval’s recommended budget. Senate Bill 487, sponsored by Senate Revenue and Economic Development, is scheduled for a Senate floor vote.

3. Collective bargaining. Democrats are pushing ahead with collective bargaining for state workers. Senate Bill 486, sponsored by Senate Government Affairs, is scheduled for a work session in the same committee.
