Veto El Obtúse has vetoed Assembly Bill 218. Feeling invaded?
Prepare for more as he challenges the record of his predecessor,
Jim the Dim, for vetoing anything and everything that might help
the little guy.
Nevada Gov. Veto El Obtúse's first veto of the 2013
legislative session came on a bill that would have expanded the
rights of injured and oppressed workers victimized by illegal
employment practices. What did we expect from this guy?
SB180 was a
Democrat-backed measure that would have required courts to award
damages, lost wages, benefits, costs and attorney's fees to workers

veto message, the Republican governor said the bill goes too far
by exposing employers to a wide range of damages and fees. Gov.
Sandoval vetoed 28 bills from the session two years ago.
TO THE LEDGE: SB457 (municipal election ward voting for
Henderson, Reno, Sparks and Carson City) comes before the Assembly
Legislative Operations and Elections Committee on May 7 along
with SB458 (uniform election act) and SB325 (plain language
