LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak toured the Las Vegas area as he signed new laws highlighting the Democrat-controlled Legislature's themes of criminal justice reform, gun control, health care and immigration.
Among the 20 measures, the Democratic governor signed Friday were a revamp of Nevada's education funding system, automatic registration for voters at the DMV and a bid to cut the state's bulging prison population.
His stops included a Culinary Union hall, Chinatown Plaza, a state office building and a North Las Vegas community center.
The governor signed a law allocating $5 million to promote the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census in a state with a 28% Hispanic population.
He also signed ban on rapid-fire "bump stock" weapon modifications and a so-called "red flag" law allowing a judge to order guns to be removed from someone deemed a threat.
