Judy’s Bill Watch List – Nevada 2013 Legislature

Share

NevadaThis is shaping up to be a very light year for bills impacting the property management industry in Nevada. Both landlords and tenants have little to watch, in terms of new legislation on the horizon. Property Managers may be interested in a few of the items on my watch list, however.

 

Unless something changes significantly in the next few weeks, this is the last of my posts on the Nevada 2013 Legislature. I’ll keep you informed, however, should circumstances warrant a “heads up” for Nevada Property Managers. For now, in no particular order, here’s what I’m watching. You’ll note that each bill number listed links to the bill information itself:

Bill # Sponsor Title / Details
UPDATED: 4/17/13. Bills that didn’t make it out of the first house by the April 12 deadline have been removed from my list. The remaining bills passed the first house, some with amendments, and some as originally drafted. They now go on to the 2nd house, where they must be voted on by May 17th.
AB 26 Nevada League of Cities and Municipalities Reduces statutory rate of depreciation of improvements made to real property for purposes of determining the assessed valuation upon which property taxes are levied.
