Special Session Ended this Morning

“The 26th Special Session of the Nevada Legislature began on February 23, 2010, at 9:00 AM and adjourned sine die on March 1, 2010, at 2:16 AM.”  Here is the special session page.

The NSP in Carson City will stay open, saving 136 jobs, the 4/10 work week will be in effect and those who can’t take furloughs must have their pay reduced equal to the amount of a furlough day. The number of furlough hours a month remains the same at 8 hours.

Here is part of SB 3 which concerns furloughs and office hours:

‘… the salary of any employee who is exempt from the furlough requirement must be reduced by 4.6 percent in lieu of furlough leave for the 2010-2011 Fiscal Year. ‘

‘Section 2 of this bill provides similar protections for state employees whose salaries are reduced by 4.6 percent in lieu of furlough leave…  ‘

‘Section 4 of this bill requires that such compensation be reduced by 4.6 percent in lieu of furlough leave and prohibits certain step increases in that compensation for the 2010-2011 Fiscal Year. ‘

“…  section 5 of this bill provides for the closing of state offices on Fridays and for the revision of the regular workweek of state employees to four 10-hour days. Section 5 also authorizes exemptions for state offices that must remain open on Fridays because of the need to provide appropriate services that are necessary to the protection of public health, safety and welfare. ”
