    The 2019 Nevada state legislature passed SB 454 which clarifies the state’s prohibition hunting big game and game birds from an aircraft helicopter or drone.  The bill was approved by Governor Steve Sisolak on May 16, 2019 and went into effect Oct. 1, 2019.
    Big game hunting in the Silver State includes deer, elk, bighorn sheep and black bears.
    While there’s no evidence drones are widely used to hunt in Nevada, a handful of videos online show people using unmanned aircraft to locate game. Sporting groups say using drones is an affront to the hunting principle of a fair chase. 
    Proponents of the new law say it gives hunters an unfair advantage, citing that hunting should remain an activity of woodsmanship, fitness levels and ability to spot game and not just about technology.

    The ‘‘Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act of 2019’’ was reintroduce in the Senate by Senator John Thune (R-SD) earlier this year. The bill proposes to simplify tax reporting requirements for employers and workers where multiple state jurisdictions are concerned. Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D) is a co-sponsor as is Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and approximately 30 other Senators.
    The legislation would establish a 30-day “safe harbor” from withholding obligations for employers and personal income tax requirements for their traveling employees. The 30-day threshold is not continuous, so an employee could accumulate the 30 days over the course of a year. Thus, if an employee travels to a nonresident state for fewer than 30 days, they incur no personal income tax liability, nor would their employer have to withhold.
    The rationale for the legislation is that the American workforce is increasingly mobile, switching jobs frequently, working in one state while living in another such as remote workers do, or workers may have multiple temporary assignments strung across the country.  The various state laws can have an adverse effect on employees’ income taxes. For example, some state thresholds are tied to personal exemption, standard deduction or filing thresholds that can change each year. Others have a specific monetary threshold based on wages earned.
  • Internet increases human trafficking risk
    Thursday, November 7, 2019 1:00 AM
    Human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry worldwide and the average age of sex trafficking victims are reported to be 11 to 14 years old. There are total of 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally according to polarisproject.org. 
    Winnemucca Domestic Violence Services (WDVS) KaLee Young advocates for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse and sex trafficking. 
    Sex trafficking occurs when someone uses force, fraud or coercion to cause a commercial sex act with an adult or causes a minor to commit a commercial sex act. Young reported that there has been at least three sex trafficking cases in Winnemucca within the last two years. In a rural area like Winnemucca, Young said internet safety is very important for sex trafficking prevention and in larger cities predators may spend time at malls and where target victims may be.
