Nevada Republicans split on handling of massive budget hole

Sandoval Promises No Special Session For Legislature

Sandoval Promises No Special Session For Legislature

He detailed his training regime, which helped convince regulators that esports players are "athletes".

"Ideally, you would have people coming from all over the globe to compete, with people paying to come in and bet on that event like you would a sportsbook", Burnett said. In the mix is eSports betting, an activity that will soon be legalized in the state thanks to the approval of the bill. However, in order for this to happen, wagering on eSports need to be properly defined and regulated first.

Under the new law, the Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC) may issue licenses permitting establishments to conduct a parimutuel system of wagering, including off-track parimutuel wagering, and may adopt, amend and repeal regulations relating to the conduct of such wagering. "Our proposed modifications adapt the Nevada Revised Statutes to suit the growing popularity of these events". The program can't start until lawmakers come up with a new way to finance it-a task that became substantially more hard when Democrats took control of the state legislature in November. Until now, betting on eSports has been allowed by Nevada gaming regulators, but such betting was not officially legal under state law. Thanks to the expansion, Nevada will finally see permission for placing wagers on eSports events.

Tiger Wood's arrest will have no impact on his marketability, feel experts
His auto showed signs of minor damage, including two flat tires, dents in his front and rear bumpers, and a broken taillight. When police searched him and asked him if he was wearing a necklace or anything similar, he said "a few screws in the body".

The biggest piece of energy legislation is still mired in a Senate committee, however: Assembly Bill 405 would essentially restore retail net metering rates for solar customers, following the state's 2015 decision to roll them back. This is in addition to the 15,000 square foot arena opened by Millenial Esports, which played host to the Halo Championship Series and Madden NFL Championships. There are already plenty of esports venues in the city like Downtown Grand. This should help grow the scene further and attract more fans to the area.

Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford, D-Las Vegas, criticized Sandoval's veto, saying it "put the interests of major pharmaceutical companies ahead of one million Nevadans who are diabetic or pre-diabetic".
