Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval on Thursday vetoed a bid to raise minimum wages for the first time in his seven-year tenure. Sandoval said in a veto message that a wage hike could undermine Nevada’s economic recovery. He vetoed six other bills Thursday _ for a total 33 this session _ that included proposals for a partial ban on incarcerating Nevada inmates in private prisons and a mandate that at least two people crew any freight train that passes through the state.
