LAS VEGAS (AP) — Gov. Steve Sisolak has signed a bill toughening Nevada's public records law to crack down on any government agencies that intentionally violate it.
Sisolak on Thursday signed a bill that would state and local governments to face fines from $1,000 to $100,000 for "willfully" failing to comply with the law by providing access to government records.
The governor also signed bills Thursday to award grants for pre-kindergarten programs, funding for several museums and other institutions and a spending bill that helps address school safety and other needs.
It includes $20 million for a new engineering building at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, $2.7 million for social workers in schools, $5.5 million for school resource officers and $4.7 million for social and emotional development programs.
Friday is the last day for the governor to sign or veto bills.
