ASSEMBLY CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Urging Delta Air Lines to reconsider its decision to deny a request for unpaid leave for legislative service.

 

 

      whereas, Public service is a noble endeavor and should be encouraged, not hampered; and


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1989 Statutes of Nevada, Page 2212 (File Number 12, ACR 12)ê

 

      whereas, Nevada takes great pride in its “citizen legislature,” and recognizes the importance of having people from all segments of society serve as legislators; and

      whereas, It is critical to the success of the Nevada legislature that all Nevadans be entitled to serve as legislators without fear of losing their jobs or any benefits associated with their jobs; and

      whereas, The Nevada legislature has specifically expressed its desire that all Nevadans be allowed to participate in the legislative process by enacting statutes that prohibit a loss of seniority for service as a member of the legislature, and provide that service in the legislature does not constitute a break in service for the purposes of a private pension plan; and

      whereas, Delta Air Lines has a policy of denying requests by its employees for leaves of absence to allow them to serve as legislators, even when unpaid leave is requested; and

      whereas, This policy has threatened the livelihood and retirement benefits of a member of the Nevada legislature, Assemblyman Jim Gibbons, who has been forced to choose between continued employment and service to his state; and

      whereas, In practical effect, Delta’s policy discourages and, in most cases, prevents employees of Delta Air Lines from serving in the legislature; and

      whereas, If other employers adopted the same policy, the only persons able to serve in this nation’s legislatures without losing their jobs would be those who are self-employed, unemployed or retired; and

      whereas, Other major airlines encourage public service by their employees, as evidenced by the fact that a pilot for Alleghany Airlines serves as a United States Senator; and

      whereas, The policy of Delta Air Lines is contrary to the cornerstone of American democracy–the principle of representational government; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the assembly of the state of nevada, the senate concurring, That the Nevada legislature urges Delta Air Lines to adopt a policy that encourages legislative service by its employees in every state in the nation; and be it further

      resolved, That Delta Air Lines is urged to reverse its decision with regard to Assemblyman Gibbons and grant his request for an unpaid leave of absence to serve in the Nevada legislature, without loss of seniority or benefits; and be it further

      resolved, That a copy of this resolution be prepared and transmitted forthwith by the Chief Clerk of the Assembly to Hollis Harris, the President of Delta Air Lines.

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Proposing to amend the Nevada constitution to establish a tax on the net proceeds of minerals extracted at rates separate from the tax on property.

 

      resolved by the senate and assembly of the state of nevada, jointly, That section 1 of article 10 be amended and a new section be added to article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada and to read respectively as follows:

      Section 1.  1.  The legislature shall provide by law for a uniform and equal rate of assessment and taxation, and shall prescribe such regulations as shall secure a just valuation for taxation of all property, real, personal and possessory, except mines and mining claims, [when not patented, the proceeds alone of] which shall be assessed and taxed [, and when patented, each patented mine shall be assessed at not less than five hundred dollars ($500), except when one hundred dollars ($100) in labor has been actually performed on such patented mine during the year, in addition to the tax upon the net proceeds.] only as provided in section 5 of this article.

      2.  Shares of stock, bonds, mortgages, notes, bank deposits, book accounts and credits, and securities and choses in action of like character are deemed to represent interest in property already assessed and taxed, either in Nevada or elsewhere, and shall be exempt.

      3.  The legislature may constitute agricultural and open-space real property having a greater value for another use than that for which it is being used, as a separate class for taxation purposes and may provide a separate uniform plan for appraisal and valuation of such property for assessment purposes. If such plan is provided, the legislature shall also provide for retroactive assessment for a period of not less than 7 years when agricultural and open-space real property is converted to a higher use conforming to the use for which other nearby property is used.

retroactive assessment for a period of not less than 7 years when agricultural and open-space real property is converted to a higher use conforming to the use for which other nearby property is used.

      4.  Personal property which is moving in interstate commerce through or over the territory of the State of Nevada, or which was consigned to a warehouse, public or private, within the State of Nevada from outside the State of Nevada for storage in transit to a final destination outside the State of Nevada, whether specified when transportation begins or afterward, shall be deemed to have acquired no situs in Nevada for purposes of taxation and shall be exempt from taxation. Such property shall not be deprived of such exemption because while in the warehouse the property is assembled, bound, joined, processed, disassembled, divided, cut, broken in bulk, relabeled or repackaged.

      5.  The legislature may exempt motor vehicles from the provisions of the tax required by this section, and in lieu thereof, if such exemption is granted, shall provide for a uniform and equal rate of assessment and taxation of motor vehicles, which rate shall not exceed five cents on one dollar of assessed valuation.

      6.  The legislature shall provide by law for a progressive reduction in the tax upon business inventories by 20 percent in each year following the adoption of this provision, and after the expiration of the 4th year such inventories are exempt from taxation. The legislature may exempt any other personal property, including livestock.

      7.  No inheritance tax shall ever be levied.

      8.  The legislature may exempt by law property used for municipal, educational, literary, scientific or other charitable purposes, or to encourage the conservation of energy or the substitution of other sources for fossil sources of energy.

      Sec. 5.  1.  The legislature shall provide by law for a tax upon the net proceeds of all minerals, including oil, gas and other hydrocarbons, extracted in this state, at a rate not to exceed 5 percent of the net proceeds. No other tax may be imposed upon a mineral or its proceeds until the identity of the proceeds as such is lost.

      2.  The legislature shall appropriate to each county that sum which would be produced by levying a tax upon the entire amount of the net proceeds taxed in each taxing district in the county at the rate levied in that district upon the assessed valuation of real property. The total amount so appropriated to each county must be apportioned among the respective governmental units and districts within it, including the county itself and the school district, in the same proportion as they share in the total taxes collected on property according to value.

      3.  Each patented mine or mining claim must be assessed and taxed as other real property is assessed and taxed, except that no value may be attributed to any mineral known or believed to underlie it, and no value may be attributed to the surface of a mine or claim if one hundred dollars’ worth of labor has been actually performed on the mine or claim during the year preceding the assessment.

FILE NUMBER 34

 

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Proposing to amend section 3 of article 9 of the constitution of the State of Nevada to raise the limit of indebtedness which the state may incur to 2 percent of assessed valuation.

 

      resolved by the assembly and senate of the state of nevada, jointly, That section 3 of article 9 of the constitution of the State of Nevada be amended to read as follows:

      Sec. 3.  The state may contract public debts; but such debts shall never, in the aggregate, exclusive of interest, exceed the sum of [one] two per cent of the assessed valuation of the state, as shown by the reports of the county assessors to the state controller, except for the purpose of defraying extraordinary expenses, as hereinafter mentioned. Every such debt shall be authorized by law for some purpose or purposes, to be distinctly specified therein; and every such law shall provide for levying an annual tax sufficient to pay the interest semiannually, and the principal within twenty years from the passage of such law, and shall specially appropriate the proceeds of said taxes to the payment of said principal and interest; and such appropriation shall not be repealed nor the taxes postponed or diminished until the principal and interest of said debts shall have been wholly paid. Every contract of indebtedness entered into or assumed by or on behalf of the state, when all its debts and liabilities amount to said sum before mentioned, shall be void and of no effect, except in cases of money borrowed to repel invasion, suppress insurrection, defend the state in time of war, or, if hostilities be threatened, provide for the public defense.

      The state, notwithstanding the foregoing limitations, may, pursuant to authority of the legislature, make and enter into any and all contracts necessary, expedient or advisable for the protection and preservation of any of its property or natural resources, or for the purposes of obtaining the benefits thereof, however arising and whether arising by or through any undertaking or project of the United States or by or through any treaty or compact between the states, or otherwise. The legislature may from time to time make such appropriations as may be necessary to carry out the obligations of the state under such contracts, and shall levy such tax as may be necessary to pay the same or carry them into effect.

FILE NUMBER 35

 

ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION–Adopting the condensation, explanation and arguments for Assembly Joint Resolution No. 34 of the 64th session.

 

      resolved by the assembly of the state of nevada, That the condensation, explanation and arguments for and against Assembly Joint Resolution No. 34 of the 64th session shall read as follows:

 

Condensation (ballot question)

 

Shall the Nevada constitution be amended to increase the bonding capacity of the state?

 

Explanation

 

The Nevada constitution limits the bonding capacity of the state to 1 percent of the assessed value of all taxable property in the state. The proposed amendment would increase the capacity to 2 percent.

 

Argument for Passage

 

Nevada’s current bonding capacity of 1 percent of assessed value is restrictive and causes many public facilities to be paid for from current tax revenues or causes construction to be postponed. Increasing the bonding capacity would allow additional bond financing which is important in a state with rapid population and economic growth.

 

Arguments Against Passage

 

If additional money is needed for the construction of public facilities, the state should use other methods to pay for them.

Condensation (ballot question)

 

Shall the Nevada constitution be amended to allow the taxation of minerals at a rate different than other property and to limit other taxes upon minerals and their proceeds?

 

Explanation

 

The proposed amendment would allow the legislature to tax the net proceeds of mines at a rate different than other property, up to the constitutional limit of 5 percent.

 

Argument for Passage

 

This proposal would allow the legislature to generate additional revenue for the state by requiring the mining industry to pay increased taxes.

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Encouraging the county school districts to increase their use of techniques to test and diagnose conduct-disordered and emotionally disturbed children.

 

      whereas, The abnormal behavioral patterns displayed by children who are emotionally disturbed are similar to the abnormal behavioral patterns displayed by children who are diagnosed as conduct-disordered, but the reasons for their sudden outbursts are distinct, thus requiring different treatment; and

      whereas, The abnormal behavior of children who are diagnosed as emotionally disturbed may be caused by organically triggered malfunctions of the brain which prohibit the children from controlling their actions; and

      whereas, The children who are diagnosed as conduct-disordered are those who are capable of controlling their abnormal behavior since it is not organically triggered but, instead, voluntarily carried out; and

      whereas, There is federal money available to the states to be used to help meet the expenses of treating emotionally disturbed children, but not to help meet the expenses incurred in treating conduct-disordered children; and

      whereas, Early detection of the exact cause of the abnormal behavior patterns of children would enable the children to receive the appropriate kind of treatment and, in the case of emotionally disturbed children, would enable the states to receive additional federal assistance; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the senate of the state of nevada, the assembly concurring, That each of the county school districts is encouraged to increase their use of techniques to test and diagnose conduct-disordered and emotionally disturbed children in the public schools; and be it further

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Commemorating African-American History Month.

 

      whereas, African-American History Month will be celebrated in Nevada throughout the month of February; and

      whereas, Although African-Americans have made significant contributions to the history of Nevada, little significant study has been accomplished in the area of western African-American history, especially in Nevada; and

      whereas, Nevadans will have more of an opportunity to become aware of the African-American influence on the history of Nevada during this month than ever before; and

      whereas, When the West was first settled, African-Americans although legally free and legally citizens, were nevertheless effectively disenfranchised throughout many states and subjected to various types of discrimination and segregation, legal and extralegal, throughout most of the other states; and

      whereas, History has shown that there was, however, a small African-American population in Nevada who were able to maintain an active social, religious and cultural identity, while aggressively asserting their rights to legal and educational equality, and from this population came many able and reasonably prosperous community leaders; and

      whereas, Historically, until the relatively recent past, there has been a deliberate neglect of the achievements or even the existence of African-Americans in the West, however, racial patterns and attitudes have played a great role in the history of Nevada and will continue to be important in our future; and

      whereas, While much more should be done to acknowledge the importance of the minority races in this state, our recognition and observance of African-American History Month is a step in that direction; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the senate of the state of nevada, the assembly concurring, That the month of February be celebrated throughout Nevada as African-American History Month; and be it further

      resolved, That the citizens of this state join in this observance and celebration of a specific portion of American history which confers special meaning on the goal of brotherhood in American life and especially here in Nevada.

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Expressing the Legislature’s refusal to consent to the placement of a repository for high-level radioactive waste in Nevada.

 

      whereas, On December 22, 1987, Congress enacted the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987, specifying Yucca Mountain, Nevada, as the sole location for evaluation as a suitable site for the placement of a national repository for high-level radioactive waste; and

      whereas, The Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1987 represents just one of the many instances of federal overreaching with regard to the public land in this state; and

      whereas, The Federal Government claims ownership of approximately 87 percent of the total land in the State of Nevada, and has targeted that land for certain undesirable federal programs; and

      whereas, The placement of a repository for high-level radioactive waste in the State of Nevada poses serious concerns about the transportation and storage of such waste and the potential harm to the environment and health of the residents and guests of this state; and

      whereas, On May 4, 1988, the residents of Clark County and Henderson, Nevada, suffered severe trauma when the Pacific Engineering and Production Company plant exploded, resulting in two deaths and over $75 million in property damage; and

      whereas, Privately owned lands suitable for heavy industrial use, sufficiently isolated from population centers and adjacent to utilities and transportation, are not readily available; and

      whereas, The Federal Government owns over 90 percent of the land in Clark County and the use of under-utilized federal land in the Apex area of the Dry Lake Valley appears to offer the best opportunity to develop a sufficiently remote heavy industry zone; and

      whereas, The Supreme Court further expanded the breadth of Congress’ power to intrude upon the sovereign states in South Carolina v. Baker, 108 S.Ct. 1355 (1988), when it ruled that Congress may tax interest on state and local bonds; and

      whereas, Although Congress has acknowledged that tax exemptions for state and local general obligation bonds are a legitimate and important method of ensuring the soundness of the nation’s infrastructure and the availability of essential services, the South Carolina v. Baker decision and the recent Congressional initiatives suggest that Congress may intrude upon the sovereignty of the states and impose a tax on the interest paid on state and local bonds; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the senate and assembly of the state of nevada, jointly, That the Nevada Legislature urges Congress to respect the fiscal integrity of the state and local governments, to reject the invitation of the Supreme Court to enact legislation which imposes a tax on interest earned on state and local bonds and to resolve this potential intrusion into the sovereignty of the states; and be if further

      resolved, That copies of this resolution be prepared and transmitted by the Secretary of the Senate to the Vice President of the United States as presiding officer of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and to each member of the Nevada Congressional Delegation; and be it further

FILE NUMBER 139

 

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Urging Congress to expedite review by the federal courts of capital cases originating in the state courts.

 

      whereas, The State of Nevada in 1977 revised its statutes authorizing the penalty of death for the offense of murder in the first degree to conform to the United States Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Constitution of the United States; and

      whereas, This revision of the statutes represented the judgment of the people of Nevada, expressed through their elected representatives, that in certain well-defined cases the penalty of death should be imposed for the offense of murder in the first degree; and

      whereas, The State of Nevada has been precluded from imposing the sentence of death in cases decided more than a decade ago against prisoners who have repeatedly sought review in the federal courts; and

      whereas, No prisoner has been executed against his will in any of the states within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit; and

      whereas, The guilt of the persons sentenced to death in the State of Nevada has been established beyond a reasonable doubt; and

      whereas, The extended and repetitive judicial proceedings that have been responsible for preventing the execution of the sentences of death imposed in the State of Nevada have largely concerned issues that have little, if any, bearing on the reliability of the convictions and the sentences imposed in the trial court; and

      whereas, This interference with state law has been caused by the federal courts, whose process of review is extended and repetitive, as illustrated by the recent decision of a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Neuschafer v. Whitley, 860 F.2d 1470; and

      whereas, The review of state judicial proceedings by federal courts is authorized by 28 U.S.C. § 2254, a provision of the federal habeas corpus statutes, and such review has become a substantial and unjustifiable obstruction of the ability of the states to enforce their laws in an effective and expeditious manner; and

statutes, and such review has become a substantial and unjustifiable obstruction of the ability of the states to enforce their laws in an effective and expeditious manner; and

      whereas, The proposed training area at Hawthorne, Nevada, possesses a wide variety of topography, and the climate itself makes the location ideal for armor and infantry training, thereby offering one of the best locations in the United States for desert operations; and

      whereas, The establishment of a National Guard Training Center at Hawthorne, Nevada, dedicated to Reserve and National Guard components, would provide a variety of training scenarios on adjacent land to the Hawthorne Army Ammunition Plant in concert with other existing land uses; and

FILE NUMBER 157

 

ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION–Expunging a certain call for a Constitutional Convention from the records of the Assembly.

 

      whereas, The original support by Nevada for requesting the Congress of the United States to call a Constitutional Convention was based upon the representation that the Convention would be limited to proposing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America; and

      whereas, The Constitution of the United States does not provide for a Constitutional Convention to be restricted to a single subject; and

      whereas, The Constitution of the United States does not need to be changed in order to balance the budget of the United States, but the existing provisions which limit the expenditures to those purposes authorized by the states when they agreed to the Constitution of the United States need to be enforced; and

      whereas, The adoption by the Nevada Assembly of Senate Joint Resolution No. 8 of the 60th session of the Legislature (File No. 39) requesting the Congress of the United States to call a Constitutional Convention was therefore induced by fraud; and

      whereas, “Fraud colors everything it touches,” and the appropriate remedy is for the Assembly to expunge from its Journal its passage of Senate Joint Resolution No. 8 of the 60th session of the Legislature requesting the Congress of the United States to call a Constitutional Convention; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the assembly of the state of nevada, That the Chief Clerk of the Assembly draw a black border around that portion of the 1979 Assembly Journal whereby the Assembly passed Senate Joint Resolution No. 8 and write across the face thereof: “Expunged by order of the Assembly this 24th day of June, 1989”; and be it further

      whereas, The employment of those persons contributes millions of dollars to the economy of southern Nevada; and

      resolved by the assembly of the state of nevada, the senate concurring, That the Executive Director of the Department of Employment Security is hereby directed to develop contingency plans for alternative employment of the workers at the Nevada Test Site in case employment at the site is substantially reduced or the site is closed; and be it further

      whereas, At present there is no uniform approach to defining a “school zone” or “school crossing,” because many different governmental entities have jurisdiction over these issues; now, therefore, be it

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Urging Congress to extend authority of states to issue tax-exempt private activity bonds and qualified mortgage revenue bonds.

 

      whereas, The State of Nevada has been subjected to an increasing number of restrictions on the type and amount of tax-exempt private activity bonds that can be issued by local governments and state agencies, such as the Nevada Department of Commerce, to assist qualified business enterprises in financing capital expansion projects within Nevada; and


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1989 Statutes of Nevada, Page 2343 (File Number 163, SJR 24)ê

 

      whereas, Chapter 348A of NRS authorizes the establishment of an allocation program by which the State of Nevada can restrict the number of tax-exempt private activity bonds so that the amount of such bonds can be contained within the volume cap established for the State of Nevada by federal tax law (26 U.S.C. § 146 (b) and (c)); and

      whereas, There is a shortage of affordable single family housing in the State of Nevada for purchase by persons of low or moderate income; and

      whereas, The exemption of interest on qualified mortgage bonds from federal taxation by the Internal Revenue Code provides an incentive for the issuance and purchase of such bonds, the proceeds of which may only be used to finance owner-occupied moderately priced residences; and

      whereas, Current federal law contains a sunset date of December 31, 1989, for the issuance of tax-exempt private activity bonds that can be issued to support certain qualified projects and the issuance of tax-exempt mortgage bonds that can be issued to finance qualified owner-occupied residences; and

      whereas, The issuance of tax-exempt private activity bonds has greatly assisted the State of Nevada in efforts to diversify the state’s economy, to create new jobs, and to achieve many of the goals and objectives of the Nevada State Plan for Economic Diversification and Development adopted by the Commission on Economic Development; and

      whereas, The issuance of qualified mortgage bonds has provided a stable source of mortgage loans for residents of Nevada with low and moderate incomes, thereby alleviating the crucial shortage of housing for such persons; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the senate and the assembly of the state of nevada, jointly, That Congress is hereby urged to enact legislation to continue the authority for states to issue qualified tax-exempt private activity bonds and qualified tax-exempt mortgage bonds beyond the scheduled sunset date of December 31, 1989; and be it further

      whereas, In the State of Nevada a small proportion of privately held land and a large proportion of public land administered by the Secretary of the Interior through the Bureau of Land Management is used for the grazing of livestock by private interests; and

      whereas, A portion of the land used for the grazing of livestock could be transferred for the use of unadoptable wild free-roaming horses and burros; and

      whereas, The federal Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act authorizes the establishment of sanctuaries on private land but the present guidelines adopted by the Secretary of the Interior for the establishment of sanctuaries do not allow for sanctuaries to be established on public land; and

      whereas, The conflict between the federal Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act and the present guidelines adopted by the Secretary of the Interior for the establishment of sanctuaries prevents the establishment of sanctuaries for unadoptable wild free-roaming horses and burros on public land in this state; and

ASSEMBLY CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Directing the Legislative Commission to conduct an interim study on teenage pregnancy in this state.

 

      whereas, Teenage pregnancy rates in Nevada have been found to be among the highest in the country according to a variety of surveys conducted by governmental agencies and private foundations; and

      whereas, Because it is estimated that in Nevada, 144 of every 1,000 teenage girls become pregnant, the economic implications directly affect every taxpayer in the state through the Aid to Families with Dependent Children payments that are necessary to support a majority of these young women; and

      whereas, Along with the short-term growth in welfare payments that the teenage pregnancy problem causes, the inability of teenage mothers to complete high school and find adequate paying jobs often encourages long-term welfare dependency; and

      whereas, Teenage fathers are also affected by premature parenthood which often casts them into the labor force before they are adequately prepared; and

      whereas, In order to combat the epidemic proportions of the teenage pregnancy problem, our state must look to a variety of programs, including educational, medical, institutional and legislative approaches that will impede the dramatic rise in the teenage pregnancy rate; now, therefore, be it

ASSEMBLY CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Directing the legislative commission, the committee to consult with the legislative counsel, and the legislative counsel to take all actions necessary to ensure that 1,000 bill drafts are completed before the first day of the 66th session of the Nevada Legislature.

 

      whereas, The number of bill drafts requested has increased constantly over the last several sessions, and increased by almost 50 percent in the last two sessions; and

      whereas, The expanding duties of the legal division of the legislative counsel bureau during the interim have made it increasingly difficult for the division to keep up with the number of bills requested; and

      whereas, As a result of these factors, many bills requested for this session will not be drafted; and

      whereas, The legislature has approved various measures this session designed to allow the legal division additional time during the interim to draft bills requested for the 66th session of the Nevada Legislature; and

      whereas, The legislative counsel has indicated that these measures, when combined with proposed changes in internal procedures, should allow the legal division to complete approximately 1,000 bill drafts before the first day of the 66th session, as opposed to the 500 that were completed before the start of this session; and

      whereas, Such an increase in the production of bills would have a profound, positive effect on the legislative process, by allowing the legislature to address more bills earlier in session and thereby reducing the length of session; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the assembly of the state of nevada, the senate concurring, That the legislative counsel is directed to take all actions necessary to complete 1,000 bill drafts before the first day of the 66th session of the Nevada Legislature; and be it further

      whereas, It is estimated that the purchasing power of a retired public employee who relies on monthly payments from the public employees’ retirement system as his only source of income will shrink by approximately one-half from the time of retirement until his death; and

      whereas, Less than one-third of the members of the public employees’ retirement system participate in the public employees’ deferred compensation program which would supplement their income and maintain their purchasing power during retirement; and

      whereas, Many retired public employees also pay premiums to maintain group health insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents; and

      whereas, There is a need to increase the post-retirement allowances paid by the public employees’ retirement system so that retired employees can keep up with the rising cost of living and maintain their purchasing power; and

      whereas, The only method to increase such allowances that is currently considered financially feasible is an increase in the rate of contribution to the system by its members; and

      whereas, There may be other alternatives which would provide the money for an increase in post-retirement allowances without affecting the financial stability of the public employees’ retirement system; now, therefore, be it

      3.  The efficiency, effectiveness and desirability of the current programs or plans of group health insurance that are available for retired public employees;

Assembly Joint Resolution No. 43–Committee on Government Affairs

 

FILE NUMBER 201

 

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Urging Congress to allow members of the Armed Forces covered by the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 a period of 10 years to use educational benefits.

 

      whereas, Returning to the civilian work force after serving in the Armed Forces usually requires additional training and education because in many cases the veteran has served in the Armed Forces during his college years; and

      whereas, Educational and training benefits offered by the Federal Government to veterans of the Armed Forces have always been a wise investment because of the benefit society receives as a result of having more of its population possessing higher education, allowing the veteran to obtain better jobs and better pay; and

      whereas, Veterans need and deserve the opportunity for a chance to become readjusted to the civilian work force because military skills and training are often not adaptable to the civilian workplace; and

      whereas, Expiration of the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 will leave many veterans without the benefit of being able to use the 10-year period generally granted veterans after release from service in the Armed Forces to use their educational benefits; now, therefore, be it

      resolved by the assembly and senate of the state of nevada, jointly, That the Nevada Legislature hereby urges the Congress of the United States to extend the deadline contained in the Vietnam Era G.I. Bill to allow veterans of the Vietnam era 10 years within which to use the educational benefits contained therein; and be it further

      resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted forthwith by the Chief Clerk of the Assembly to the President of the United States, the Vice President of the United States as the presiding officer of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and each member of the Nevada Congressional Delegation; and be it further

      resolved, That this resolution becomes effective upon passage and approval.
