CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada Assembly committee has failed to pass a bill that would extend school construction bonds and suspend prevailing wage requirements for school projects.
The Assembly Government Affairs Committee held a vote on Tuesday to move SB119 to the floor of the Assembly without a recommendation. The motion failed on a 7-7 vote, with Democrats and Republicans John Moore and Glenn Trowbridge voting against the measure.
Committee chairman Assemblyman John Ellison said the vote was necessary because Assembly Republicans needed to reach a consensus on the bill before passing it out of committee.
Senate Republicans said Monday that they would create a version of the bill without the prevailing wage provision if the Assembly failed to hold a vote on the measure by Friday.
