Nevada Lawmakers to Take Up Background Check Legislation

Nevada lawmakers are expected on Tuesday to hear legislation addressing background checks on gun sales and transfers.

The measure has not been introduced as a formal bill as of Monday morning. But a state Senate agenda says the measure is expected to be heard by lawmakers at 8 a.m. Tuesday in a joint meeting of lawmakers from the Assembly and Senate.

Voters have approved a 2016 gun background check initiative. Former Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval and Republican Attorney General Adam Laxalt said it could not be enforced and was flawed.

Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak said in his State of the State speech that he's working with the Nevada lawmakers to enforce the initiative.
