CHAPTER 6, SB 18

Senate Bill No. 18–Committee on Finance

CHAPTER 6

AN ACT relating to the support of public schools; and providing other matters properly relating thereto.

 

[Approved February 26, 1968]

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Section 5 of chapter 322, Statutes of Nevada 1967, at page 890, is hereby amended to read as follows:

      Section 5.  1.  On or before August 1, November 1, February 1 and May 1 of each year, the state controller shall render to the superintendent of public instruction a statement of the moneys in the state treasury subject to distribution to the several school districts of the state as provided in this section.

      2.  Immediately after the state controller has made his quarterly report, the state board of education shall apportion the state distributive school fund among the several county school districts and joint school districts in the following manner:

      (a) Basic support of each school district shall be computed by multiplying the average daily attendance by the basic support guarantee per pupil established in section 3 of this act. [, except that in any year when the average daily attendance of a school district is less than the average daily attendance during the prior year, and such lesser average daily attendance was not anticipated at the time estimates were made by the superintendent of the county or joint school district in June of the preceding school year, the superintendent of public instruction may authorize additional apportionments in an amount such that the total apportionment for the year does not exceed the total apportionment for the prior year. As a condition precedent to such authorization, the superintendent of the county or joint school district shall deliver to the superintendent of public instruction a request setting forth the reasons why the additional apportionment is necessary to the financial support of the school district, and the superintendent of public instruction shall review such request.]

      (b) The availability of local funds shall be determined, which local funds shall be the sum of:


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

κ1968 Statutes of Nevada, 13th Special Session, Page 16 (Chapter 6, SB 18)κ

 

             (1) The proceeds of the 70-cent local tax computed as provided in NRS 387.195 or 387.250;

             (2) Twenty-five percent of all moneys received by the school district under the provisions of Public Law 874, 81st Congress, approved September 30, 1950, as amended, during the previous year; and

             (3) The proceeds of the local school support tax imposed by sections 16 to 171, inclusive, of this act. The Nevada tax commission shall furnish an estimate of such proceeds, based upon actual collections during the preceding fiscal year, to the state board of education on or before July 15 for the fiscal year then begun, and the state board of education shall adjust the August apportionment of the succeeding fiscal year to reflect any difference between such estimate and actual receipts.

      (c) Apportionment computed on a yearly basis shall consist of the difference between the basic support as computed in paragraph (a) of this subsection and the local funds available as computed in paragraph (b) of this subsection.

      (d) Apportionments shall be paid quarterly at the times provided in subsection 1, each quarterly payment to consist of approximately one-fourth of the yearly apportionment as computed in paragraph (c) of this subsection. The first quarterly apportionment based on an estimated number of pupils in average daily attendance and succeeding quarterly apportionments shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as the need therefor may appear. A final adjustment shall be made in the August apportionment of the succeeding year by adding or subtracting the difference between the amount paid in the previous year and the amount computed on the actual average daily attendance of the highest 6 months of the previous year, so that for any school year the adjusted amount paid shall be equal to, but shall not exceed, the sum computed for the highest 6 months of average daily attendance.

      (e) For any year when the average daily attendance of a school district in any category is less than the average daily attendance in such category during the prior year, and such lesser average daily attendance was not anticipated at the time estimates were made by the superintendent of the county or joint school district in June of the preceding school year, the superintendent of public instruction may authorize additional apportionments in amounts such that the total of all apportionments for the year do not exceed the total apportionment for the year that would be computed by substituting the average daily attendance of the prior year in the category so affected for the average daily attendance of the current year in the category so affected. As a condition precedent to such authorization, the superintendent of the county or joint school district shall deliver to the superintendent of public instruction a request setting forth the reasons why the additional apportionment is necessary to the financial support of the school district, and the superintendent of public instruction shall review such request. As used in this paragraph, “category” means any one of the groups of persons separately described in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of subsection 1 of section 4 of chapter 322, Statutes of Nevada 1967.

      (f) The board of trustees of any school district in this state whose estimated receipts from all sources provided by chapter 322, Statutes of Nevada 1967, including any additional apportionment made pursuant to paragraph (e) are less for any fiscal year because of reduced average daily attendance or reduced local income, or both, than the total estimated receipts from such sources in the final approved budget for such fiscal year, and which cannot therefore provide a minimum program of education and meet its contract obligations, may apply for emergency financial assistance from the state distributive school fund and may be granted such assistance upon compliance with the following conditions and procedures:

κ1968 Statutes of Nevada, 13th Special Session, Page 17 (Chapter 6, SB 18)κ

 

paragraph (e) are less for any fiscal year because of reduced average daily attendance or reduced local income, or both, than the total estimated receipts from such sources in the final approved budget for such fiscal year, and which cannot therefore provide a minimum program of education and meet its contract obligations, may apply for emergency financial assistance from the state distributive school fund and may be granted such assistance upon compliance with the following conditions and procedures:

             (1) The tax levy for the applying district shall be the maximum of $1.50 for operating costs as authorized by law, not including any special tax authorized by the provisions of NRS 387.290.

             (2) Such application shall be made to the state board of education in such form as shall be prescribed by the superintendent of public instruction, and in accordance with guidelines for evaluating needs for emergency financial assistance as established by the state board of education.

             (3) Before acting on any such application, the state board of education and state board of examiners, jointly, shall determine the difference between the total amount of money appropriated and authorized for expenditure during the current biennium from the state distributive school fund and the total amount of money estimated to be payable from such fund during the biennium pursuant to paragraphs (c) and (e), and shall make no distribution in excess of such difference.

             (4) The state board of education shall review each application and shall by resolution find the least amount of additional money, if any, which it deems necessary to enable the board of trustees of the applying school district to provide a minimum educational program and meet its irreducible contract obligations. In making such determination, the state board of education shall consider also the amount available in the distributive school fund and the anticipated amount of future applications, so that no deserving school district will be wholly denied relief.

             (5) If the state board of education finds that emergency assistance should be granted to an applying school district, it shall transmit its resolution finding such amount to the state board of examiners, along with a report of its then-current estimate of the total requirements to be paid from the state distributive school fund during the then-current fiscal year.

             (6) The state board of examiners shall independently review each resolution so transmitted by the state board of education, may require the submission of such additional justification as it deems necessary, and shall find by resolution the amount of emergency assistance, if any, to be granted. The board may defer, and subsequently grant or deny, any part of a request.

             (7) The state board of examiners shall transmit one copy of its finding to the state board of education and one copy to the state controller. Upon receipt of a claim pursuant to a grant of emergency assistance, such claim shall be paid from the state distributive school fund as other claims against the state are paid.

             (8) Money received by a school district pursuant to a grant of relief may be expended only in accordance with the approved budget of such school district for the fiscal year for which such grant is made. No formal action to incorporate the money so received in the approved budget is required, but such receipts shall be reported as other receipts are reported and explained in a footnote as emergency loans are explained.


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

κ1968 Statutes of Nevada, 13th Special Session, Page 18 (Chapter 6, SB 18)κ

 

             (9) The state board of education shall transmit to the legislature a report of each and every grant of emergency assistance paid pursuant to this paragraph.

      3.  Pupils who are excused from attendance at examinations or have completed their work in accordance with the rules of the board of trustees shall be credited with attendance during that period.

      Sec. 2.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The legislature finds and declares:

      1.  That the present and reasonably anticipated future developments of travel by jet aircraft have created a need for airport facilities radically different in scale and location from any now available in this state;

      2.  That the situation of Clark County within easy distance by short-haul aircraft from the principal population centers of the rapidly growing Southwest, and with an abundance of land suited to a large-scare airport, offers an exceptional location for a jet-age airport to serve the entire region; and

      Sec. 2.  1.  The board of county commissioners of Clark County, without any election, hearing or other preliminaries, but subject to the provisions of subsection 2 of this section, is authorized to enter into an agreement for any term not exceeding 15 years with Hughes Tool Company, a Delaware corporation, for the development of a jet airport, and notwithstanding the term of the agreement may extend beyond the term of office of any member of such board.

      (e) Other provisions necessary or proper to effectuate those specifically authorized by this section, and may require the board of county commissioners to use their best efforts to obtain from the Congress of the United States a release of those certain conditions subsequent which were attached to the original conveyance of the land now occupied by McCarran Airport to Clark County.

      2.  The agreement shall provide that its provisions shall not become effective until the agreement is ratified and approved by the legislature of the State of Nevada.

      Sec. 3.  For the purpose either of delivering bonds as payment or of raising money for cash payment by their public or private sale, or a combination of these, as provided in section 2 of this act, the board of county commissioners is authorized to issue revenue bonds pledging the gross or net revenues of the jet airport to be acquired but not constituting a general obligation of Clark County.

In all other respects, the general provisions of the Local Government Securities Law, including the provisions for refunding, apply to bonds issued pursuant to this section.

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

University Securities Law in its connection with this act, unless the context otherwise requires, have the meanings ascribed to them in sections 2 to 5, inclusive, of this act.

      Sec. 2.  “Net pledged revenues” means all the “pledged revenues,” as defined in this act, without any deduction of any operation and maintenance expenses except as provided in such definition of “pledged revenues.”

      Sec. 3.  “Pledged revenues” means the “student fees,” as defined in this act, and if hereafter authorized by law, all net income and revenues, if any, to be derived from the operation of income-producing facilities of the university or from other available sources and to which the pledge and lien provided for the payment of the securities authorized in this act and any other securities payable therefrom are extended.

      Sec. 4.  “Project” means the construction, other acquisition and improvement (or any combination thereof) of the buildings, structures and other facilities required or desired by the university on the campus of Nevada Southern University in Clark County as delineated and described in section 6 of this act, equipment and furnishings therefor, and other appurtenances relating thereto.

      Sec. 7.  Upon the request of the board, all phases of the planning, design, construction and equipment of the project provided for in this act shall be subject to supervision by the state planning board in accordance with the provisions of chapter 341 of NRS.

Insofar as the provisions of this act are inconsistent with the provisions of any other law, general or special, the provisions of this act shall be controlling.

      Sec. 9.  This act being necessary to secure and preserve the public health, safety, convenience and welfare shall be liberally construed to effect its purposes.

      Sec. 10.  If any provision of this act or the application thereof to any person, thing or circumstance is held invalid, such invalidity shall not affect the provisions or application of this act that can be given effect without the invalid provision or application, and to this end the provisions of this act are declared to be severable.

      Sec. 11.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

      Section 2.  A town board form of government, for the purpose of governing such town in accordance with the powers specified in this chapter, may be established for any unincorporated town in the State of Nevada. The town board form of government shall be adopted in the manner provided in sections 3 to 5, inclusive, of [this act.] chapter 545, Statutes of Nevada 1967, or section 3 of this amendatory act.

      Sec. 2.  Chapter 269 of NRS is hereby amended by adding thereto the provisions set forth as sections 3 and 4 of this act.

      Sec. 3.  1.  A town board form of government may be adopted by means of initiative petition of the residents of such town.

      2.  The procedures established by sections 10 to 15, inclusive, of chapter 186, Statutes of Nevada 1967, for the adoption of county ordinances by initiative petition shall be followed by such residents and each document of the petition shall set forth briefly the proposal to establish a town board form of government. The election required to be held if the proposal is not adopted by the board of county commissioners shall be held not less than 30 days nor more than 60 days after the date of the final board vote thereon.

      3.  If a town board form of government is so adopted, members of the town board shall be appointed and elected as provided in section 3 of chapter 545, Statutes of Nevada 1967.

      4.  This section does not apply to any county having a population of 50,000 or more as determined by the last preceding national census of the Bureau of the Census of the United States Department of Commerce.

      Sec. 4.  In addition to the qualifications prescribed in NRS 293.485 for electors in all elections, a person may vote in an election held pursuant to section 3 of this act only if he has been a resident of the area for which it is proposed to establish a town board form of government for at least 30 days prior to such election.

      Sec. 5.  NRS 269.105 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      269.105  1.  All salaries of officers mentioned in this chapter and all expenses incurred in carrying on any government herein provided for shall be paid out of the general fund of the town or city, to the affairs of which the government relates.

      2.  All claims for such salaries and expenses shall be presented to the town board or board of county commissioners, who shall consider and allow or reject the same, in whole or in part, and a record of their action shall be entered upon their minutes.

      3.  If allowed in whole or in part by a majority vote of all the members composing the town board or board of county commissioners, the clerk thereof shall certify the claims to the county auditor, who shall thereupon issue his warrant to the holder, substantially in the following form:

 

No......................                                                    ......................................................................  19.......

      The county treasurer of .................................... County will pay to ............................................. the sum of ................. dollars, for (stating in general terms the nature of the claim), and charge the same to the general fund of the (town or city of) ..........................……...........

$...................                                       ................................................, County Auditor

The county auditor shall appropriately fill all blanks.

 

      4.  Upon presentation of any warrant, the county treasurer shall immediately pay the same if he has money in his hands sufficient therefor belonging to the fund upon which it is drawn; but, if he has not, he shall endorse on the warrant, “Not paid for want of funds,” adding thereto the date of the endorsement and signing his name officially to the same; and thereafter he shall pay the warrant out of the first money applicable thereto coming into his hands.

      5.  Before 12 m. on the 1st Monday in each month, the county treasurer shall post a notice in a conspicuous place in his office, showing the number and amount of each outstanding warrant, if any, which there is money in the treasury to pay.

      6.  On paying any warrant, the county treasurer shall write across the face thereof, in red ink, “Paid,” with the date of payment, and sign his name officially thereto, and the warrant, thus canceled, shall be a sufficient voucher for the county treasurer for his official settlement, which settlement shall be made in time and manner as provided for settlement for county funds.

      7.  The chairman of the board of county commissioners shall, in addition to such settlement, once a month examine the books and vouchers of the county treasurer concerning the state of the finances in his hands, as mentioned in this chapter, and report the result to the board, which report shall be spread upon the minutes of the board. Such report shall be delivered to the town boards, if any, created pursuant to sections 2 to 5, inclusive, of [this act.] chapter 545, Statutes of Nevada 1967, and section 3 of this amendatory act. Such town boards shall have access, at all reasonable times, to the books and vouchers of the county treasurer which relate to the respective towns.
