Nevada New Laws for 2012

Happy new year.

Remember, effective today, only hands-free use of mobile phones is permitted while driving, and text messages is never permitted. Enforcement is primary, meaning you can be pulled over for this offense alone, and receive a first-offense ticket of $50. First offenses are not, however, considered moving violations.

State workers hired in 2012 and beyond will have to cover their own health care costs in retirement.
