Nevada Governor: Legislation Supporting NV Caregivers

NV (STL.News) Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed legislation that provides certain employees with the right to use sick leave to assist certain family members with medical needs.  The Governor was joined by bill sponsor Assemblywoman Shannon Bilbray-Axelrod and representatives of AARP Nevada for the signing of Assembly Bill 190.

“Supporting caregivers by allowing more flexibility in sick leave use is critically important to Nevada’s families.  This legislation will keep more aging Nevadans in their homes, and ensure their family members can care for their loved ones without sacrificing the financial security of their families,” said Gov. Sisolak.  “I am grateful to the Assembly Committee of Commerce and Labor, including Assemblywoman Bilbray-Axelrod and AARP Nevada for helping push this legislation forward.”
