Nevada lawmakers OK mail ballots, virus liability protection



CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada's part-time Legislature concluded an emergency special session early Thursday morning after passing a slew of policies that address issues that have arisen over spring and summer. They passed a plan to mail all active voters absentee ballots, banned the use of chokeholds by police officers and revised a controversial law that expanded protections for officers facing misconduct allegations. They also passed bills to expand eligibility for unemployment benefits, protect businesses from coronavirus-related legal liability and facilitate mediation between landlords and tenants to avoid evictions. Gov. Steve Sisolak is expected to sign the final bills in the upcoming days.
