Nevada Lawmakers Plow Through 100s Of Bills Before Deadline

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada lawmakers on Tuesday passed dozens of bills through the state Senate and Assembly and diverted several others back to a key committee in order to ensure their priority proposals survived past a crucial deadline.

Unless granted exemptions, bills were required to pass through a first chamber by the end of the day Tuesday. Bills to make "doxxing" a crime, allow veterinarians to practice telemedicine and prohibit cat declawing passed through the first chamber.

The state Assembly amended a bill proposing a ban on "ghost guns" and the Senate passed bills about HIV criminalization and security deposits.
