      Sec. 16.  There shall be levied annually a special tax on all property, both real and personal, subject to taxation within the boundaries of the State of Nevada, including the net proceeds of mines, sufficient to pay the interest on the bonds and to pay and retire the same as provided in this act; and the amount of money to be raised by such tax shall be included in the annual estimate or budget for each county in the state for each year for which such tax is hereby required to be levied. Such tax shall be levied and collected in the same manner and at the same time as other taxes are levied and collected.

Such tax shall be levied immediately after the issuance of any bonds herein authorized, at the times and in the manner provided by law, and annually thereafter until all of the bonds, and the interest thereon, shall have been discharged. Any sums coming due on the bonds at any time when there are not on hand from such tax levy or levies sufficient funds to pay the same shall be promptly paid when due from the general fund of the state, reimbursement to be made to such general fund in the sums thus advanced when the taxes herein provided for shall have been collected.

 


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

herein provided for shall have been collected. Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent the state from applying any other funds that may be available for that purpose to the payment of the interest or principal as the same respectively mature, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the payment of the bonds as provided in section 15 hereof, and upon such payments, the levy or levies here provided may thereupon to that extent be diminished. In any year in which the total taxes levied by all overlapping units within the boundaries of the State of Nevada may exceed the limitation of 5 cents on the dollar imposed by section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada, and it shall become necessary by reason thereof to reduce the levies made by any and all such units, the reduction so made shall be in taxes levied by such unit or units (including the state) for purposes other than the payment of their bonded indebtedness, including interest thereon. The taxes levied hereafter for the payment of such bonded indebtedness and the interest thereon, shall always enjoy a priority over taxes levied by each such unit (including the state) for all other purposes where reduction is necessary to comply with the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada.

      There is by this act, and there shall be by resolution authorizing the issuance of any bonds hereby authorized, specially appropriated the proceeds of such taxes to the payment of such principal and interest; and such appropriations shall not be repealed nor the taxes postponed or diminished (except as herein otherwise expressly provided) until the principal of and interest on the bonds shall have been wholly paid.

      Sec. 17.  The faith of the State of Nevada is hereby pledged that this act shall not be repealed until all the bonds issued under and by virtue hereof, and the interest thereon, shall have been paid in full as provided in this act.

      Sec. 18.  The resolution providing for the issuance of the bonds may state that the bonds may contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to this act, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and the regularity of their issuance.

      Sec. 19.  The proceeds of the sale or sales of the bonds shall be credited to the state planning board in the state treasury for its use pursuant to the provisions of section 3 of this act, but if it shall appear at the time of the receipt of such proceeds that the state planning board does not require all or a portion of such proceeds immediately, such proceeds or portion thereof may be invested by the state board of finance in short-term bonds, certificates or other evidences of indebtedness of the United States of America or any of its agencies or instrumentalities when such obligations are guaranteed as to principal and interest by the United States of America or by any agency or instrumentality thereof. Any interest received from such investments shall be deposited in the general fund in the state treasury.

      Sec. 20.  1.  The state planning board is charged with the duty of constructing and furnishing in a minimum manner the chemistry and lecture buildings of phase I of the physical science building project, on the Washoe County campus of the University of Nevada, authorized by this act:

 


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

ê1967 Statutes of Nevada, Page 30 (Chapter 5, SB 38)ê

 

      (a) As provided in chapter 341 of NRS.

      (b) Relating to the preparation of the plans, specifications and contract documents necessary to the construction and minimum furnishing of such buildings.

      2.  The state planning board shall insure that competent architects, engineers and other qualified persons are employed to prepare the plans and specifications required to construct the buildings and, if necessary, to assist in the preparation of contract documents necessary to such construction.

      3.  All work in connection with such construction shall be approved by the state planning board, and each contract document pertaining to such work shall be approved by the attorney general.

      4.  The state planning board shall advertise, in a newspaper of general circulation in the State of Nevada, for separate sealed bids for construction and furnishing of the authorized buildings. Approved plans and specifications for such buildings shall be on file at a place and time stated in such advertisement for the inspection of all persons desiring to bid thereon and for other interested persons. The state planning board may accept bids on either the whole or on a part or parts of such buildings, and may let separate contracts for different and separate portions of any building, or a combination contract for structural, mechanical and electrical construction if savings will result thereby to the lowest bidder thereon; but any and all bids may be rejected for any good reason.

      Sec. 21.  This act, without reference to other statutes of the state, shall constitute full authority for the authorization and issuance of bonds hereunder, except as herein otherwise specifically provided. No other act or law with regard to the authorization or issuance of bonds that in any way impedes or restricts the carrying out of the acts herein authorized to be done shall be construed as applying to any proceedings taken hereunder or acts done pursuant hereto. The powers conferred by this act shall be in addition and supplemental to, and not in substitution for, and the limitations imposed by this act shall not affect the powers conferred by, any other law. No part of this act shall repeal or affect any other law or part thereof.

      Sec. 22.  Bonds issued under the provisions of this act, their transfer, and the income therefrom, shall forever be and remain free and exempt from taxation by the State of Nevada or any subdivision thereof.

      Sec. 23.  It shall be legal for any of the agencies and departments of the State of Nevada or political subdivisions or any political or public corporation, or any instrumentality of the State of Nevada, to invest funds or moneys in their custody in any of the bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions of this act.

      Sec. 24.  This act being necessary to secure and preserve the public health, safety, convenience and welfare of the people of the State of Nevada, it shall be liberally construed to effect its purpose.

      Sec. 25.  If any section, paragraph, clause or provision of this act shall for any reason be held to be invalid or unenforcible, the invalidity or unenforcibility of such section, paragraph, clause or provision shall not affect any of the remaining provisions of this act.

      Sec. 26.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

pledged in any fund or funds created to pay the securities or created to additionally secure their payment. The council shall, in the manner provided by law, including without limitation NRS 350.250, make an annual levy sufficient to meet the payments of principal and interest on securities issued pursuant to subsection 2 of Section 4 of Article XVIII, as the same become due, provided that the levy or levies of general (ad valorem) taxes herein provided may be diminished to the extent that other revenues of the city are available for the payment of such principal and interest.

Such securities shall constitute the special obligations of the city payable directly from the other revenues of the city so pledged. Subject to being included within the limitation on indebtedness of Section 3, Article XVI, their payment may be additionally secured by a specific pledge of tax proceeds to be utilized in such amounts and in such manner as the council may determine.

      4.  Securities issued pursuant to Section 4 of Article XVIII shall be authorized by ordinance and shall bear such date or dates, shall be in such convenient denomination or denominations, and shall mature at any time or times from and after such date or dates as the Council may determine, but in no event shall any security be issued to run for a longer period than 30 years from the date of such security. Said securities shall bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding 6 percent per annum, which interest may be evidenced by one or two sets of coupons, payable annually or semiannually, except that the first interest payment date appertaining to any security may be at any time within 1 year from the date of such security as may be prescribed by the authorizing ordinance; and said securities and any coupons shall be payable in such medium of payment at any banking institution, the office of the city clerk or at such other place or places within or without the State as determined by the council; and said securities, at the option of the council, may be in one or more series and may be made subject to prior redemption in such order or by lot or otherwise, at such time or times without or with the payment of a premium or premiums not exceeding 6 percent of the principal amount of each security so redeemed as determined by the council.

      5.  Each series of securities issued pursuant to subsection 2 of Section 4 of Article XVIII shall mature, insofar as practicable, in substantially equal annual installments of principal, or upon an amortization plan for such securities so that substantially equal annual tax levies shall be required for the payment of the principal of and the interest on such securities, or upon an amortization plan for all general obligation securities of the city so that substantially equal annual tax levies shall be required for the payment of the principal of and the interest on all such outstanding securities of the city, but the first or last installment of principal, or both, may be for greater or lesser amounts than required by any of the aforesaid limitations, or in any other manner the council may determine.

the aforesaid limitations, or in any other manner the council may determine.

      6.  Each series of securities issued pursuant to subsection 3 of Section 4 of Article XVIII may mature without limitation as to time, manner or amount but not exceeding the maximum term heretofore specified nor the estimated duration of any revenues pledged to the payment of said securities, whichever is earlier.

Securities may be issued with privileges for registration for payment as to principal alone, or both principal and interest, at the holder’s option, or for registration for payment only in either manner designated; and where interest accruing on the securities is not represented by interest coupons, the securities may provide for the endorsing of payments of interest thereon or for reconverting the securities into coupon securities, or both for such endorsement and such reconversion. Unless registered for payment as to both principal and interest and there thus be no coupons, said securities shall have negotiable interest coupons attached in such manner that they can be removed upon the payment of the installments of interest without injury to the bonds. Each set of coupons attached to any security, if interest on said security is represented by coupons, shall be consecutively numbered and each coupon shall bear the number of the security to which it is attached. Said securities shall be signed by the mayor of the city, countersigned by the county treasurer as ex officio city treasurer, and signed and attested by the city clerk, with the seal of the city affixed thereto, and coupons, if any, shall bear the facsimile signature of said treasurer. Any of said officers, after filing with the secretary of state his or her manual signature certified under oath, may execute or cause to be executed with a facsimile signature in lieu of his or her manual signature any security or coupon herein authorized, provided that such a filing is not a condition of the valid execution with a facsimile signature of any interest coupon, and provided that at least one signature required or permitted to be placed on each security (excluding any interest coupon) shall be manually subscribed. The clerk of the city may cause the seal to be printed, engraved, stamped or otherwise placed in facsimile on any security. A facsimile signature or facsimile seal shall have the same legal effect as if manually signed or impressed upon the security or coupon, as the case may be. The securities and any coupons thereto attached, bearing the signatures of the officers in office at the time of the signing thereof, shall be the valid and binding obligations of the city, notwithstanding that before the delivery thereof and payment therefor, any or all of the persons whose signatures appear thereon shall have ceased to fill their respective offices. Any officer herein authorized or permitted to sign any security or interest coupon, at the time of its execution and of the execution of a signature certificate, may adopt as and for his own facsimile signature the facsimile signature of his predecessor in office in the event that such facsimile signature appears upon the securities or coupons appertaining thereto, or upon both the securities and such coupons.

      (u) All such acts and things as may be necessary or convenient or desirable in order to secure the city’s securities, or in the discretion of the council tend to make the securities more marketable, notwithstanding that such covenant, act or thing may not be enumerated herein, it being the intention hereof to give the city power to do all things in the issuance of securities and for their security except as herein specifically limited.

      10.  Before offering securities issued pursuant to subsection 2 or subsection 3 of Section 4 of Article XVIII for public sale or before adopting an ordinance authorizing the issuance of such securities which have been privately sold, the council shall publish a proclamation in some newspaper having a general circulation in the city once in each calendar week for 3 successive calendar weeks by three weekly insertions a week apart, stating the purpose or purposes for which the securities are to be issued, the maximum amount of the securities, the maximum rate of interest, not to exceed 6 percent per annum, the maximum number of years which the securities are to run, and such other details as the council may, in its discretion, determine. If within 20 days after the last publication of said proclamation, a petition requesting an election shall be filed with the city clerk signed by not less than 10 percent of the persons voting at the last municipal election, at least one-half of whom shall then be property owners within the city, it shall be the duty of the council to submit the question of issuing said securities to the electors of the city at a general election or at a special election which the council may call for that purpose. The question to be submitted at said election shall contain the same information which is hereinabove required to be contained in the proclamation. Whenever the council has ordered an election, the city clerk shall cause notice of the election to be published in some newspaper having a general circulation in the city once in each calendar week for 2 successive calendar weeks by two weekly insertions a week apart, the first publication to be not more than 30 days nor less than 22 days next preceding the date of the election. Except as hereafter provided, the notice of election shall contain:

      (f) The maximum number of years which the securities are to run. If the election is consolidated with the general election, the notice of election need not set forth the places of holding the election, but may instead state that the places of holding the election shall be the same as those provided for the general election. Such election shall be held and conducted as nearly as possible as provided by NRS 350.020 to 350.070, both inclusive, as from time to time amended and supplemented, and, to the extent not inconsistent herewith, in the manner provided for the election of city officers. Except as provided in subsection 10 of Section 4 of Article XVIII, no ordinance, resolution, question of issuing securities or other proceeding of the council adopted in the exercise of the powers conferred by this Section 4 of Article XVIII shall be subject to any referendum or other vote of the electors.

Securities shall be sold for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest thereon, or, at the option of the governing body, below par at a discount of not exceeding 6 percent of the principal amount thereof and at a price which will not result in a net interest rate to the municipal corporation of more than 6 percent per annum computed to maturity according to standard tables of bond values including as a part of such rate the amount of discount permitted by the governing body on the sale of the bonds. No discount or commission shall be allowed or paid on the sale of such bonds (except as herein otherwise provided). The council may employ legal, financial, engineering and other expert services in connection with any purpose for which the bonds are authorized and with the authorization, sale and issuance of the securities.

      12.  This Section 4 of Article XVIII, without reference to other statutes of the state, except as herein otherwise specifically provided, shall constitute full authority for the acquisition of facilities and the authorization and issuance of securities hereunder. Except as provided by Section 3 of Article XVI of this charter, no other statute or law or provision of this charter with regard to the acquisition of facilities and the authorization or issuance of securities that in any way impeded or restricts the carrying out of the acts herein authorized to be done shall be construed as applying to any proceedings taken hereunder or acts done pursuant hereto. The powers conferred by this Section 4 of Article XVIII shall be in addition and supplemental to, and not in substitution for, and the limitations imposed by this Section 4 of Article XVIII shall not affect the powers conferred by any other provision of this charter. No part of this Section 4 of Article XVIII shall repeal or affect any other law or part thereof, it being intended that this Section 4 of Article XVIII shall provide a separate method for the city of accomplishing its objectives, and not an exclusive one and this Section 4 shall not be construed as repealing, amending or changing any such other law. This Section 4 of Article XVIII shall have no application and shall not operate as a limitation on special assessment or local improvement securities issued pursuant to any general or special act.

      (b) Each series of securities issued pursuant to subsection 2 of this section 15.01 shall mature, insofar as practicable, in substantially equal annual installments of principal, or upon an amortization plan for such securities so that substantially equal annual tax levies shall be required for the payment of the principal of and the interest on such securities, or upon an amortization plan for all general obligation securities of the city so that substantially equal annual tax levies shall be required for the payment of the principal of and the interest on all such outstanding securities of the city; but the first or last installment of principal, or both, may be for greater or lesser amounts than required by any of the aforesaid limitations, or at the option of the council without limitation as to the manner in which they mature.

[Approved February 22, 1967]

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  NRS 684.345 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      684.345  1.  All funds received by any person acting as an insurance agent, broker or solicitor, surplus line broker, motor club agent, or bail agent or solicitor, as premium or return premium on or under any policy of insurance or undertaking of bail, are received and held by such person in his fiduciary capacity. Any such person who diverts or appropriates such fiduciary funds to his own use is guilty of embezzlement.

      2.  This section applies to any person licensed, whether under a permanent license, restricted license, temporary license or certificate of convenience, to act in any of the capacities specified in subsection 1. If any fiduciary funds enumerated in subsection 1 and held for one or more principals are maintained in accordance with paragraph (b) of this subsection, such funds for other principals may be held and remitted in accordance with paragraph (a) of this subsection. Otherwise, each such person who does not make immediate remittance of all funds received as premium to the insurer entitled thereto shall elect and follow with respect to such funds one of the following methods:

      (a) Remit premiums, less commissions, and return premiums received or held by him to the insurer or the person entitled thereto within 15 days after the receipt thereof; or

Such person may commingle with such fiduciary funds in such account or depository such additional funds as he may deem prudent for the purpose of advancing premiums, establishing reserves for the paying of return commissions, or for such contingencies as may arise in his business of receiving and transmitting premium or return premium funds. Such person may commingle the funds of any principal with his own funds to an unlimited extent, if such principal in writing specifically waives the segregation requirements of this subsection. Commingling of funds as herein permitted shall not alter the fiduciary nature of such premium or return premium funds.

Senate Bill No. 101–Committee on Judiciary

CHAPTER 46

AN ACT relating to commercial instruments and transactions; increasing the fees for services of the secretary of state and county recorders in connection therewith; providing a prefiling period; and providing other matters properly relating thereto.

 

[Approved February 22, 1967]

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  NRS 104.9403 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      104.9403  1.  Presentation for filing of a financing statement and tender of the filing fee or acceptance of the statement by the filing officer constitutes filing under this article.

      2.  A filed financing statement which states a maturity date of the obligation secured of 5 years or less is effective until such maturity date and thereafter for a period of 60 days. Any other filed financing statement is effective for a period of 5 years from the date of filing. The effectiveness of a filed financing statement lapses on the expiration of such 60-day period after a stated maturity date or on the expiration of such 5-year period, as the case may be, unless a continuation statement is filed prior to the lapse. Upon such lapse the security interest becomes unperfected. A filed financing statement which states that the obligation secured is payable on demand is effective for 5 years from the date of filing.

      3.  A continuation statement may be filed by the secured party:

      (a) Within 6 months before and 60 days after a stated maturity date of 5 years or less; and

      (b) Otherwise within 6 months prior to the expiration of the 5-year period specified in subsection 2. Any such continuation statement must be signed by the secured party, identify the original statement by file number and state that the original statement is still effective. Upon timely filing of the continuation statement, the effectiveness of the original statement is continued for 5 years after the last date to which the filing was effective whereupon it lapses in the same manner as provided in subsection 2 unless another continuation statement is filed prior to such lapse. Succeeding continuation statements may be filed in the same manner to continue the effectiveness of the original statement. Unless a statute on disposition of public records provides otherwise, the filing officer may remove a lapsed statement from the files and destroy it.

      4.  A filing officer shall mark each original financing statement with a consecutive file number and with the date and hour of filing and shall hold the statement for public inspection. In addition the filing officer shall index the statements according to the name of the debtor and shall note in the index the file number and the address of the debtor given in the statement.

      5.  The uniform fee for filing, indexing and furnishing filing data for an original or a continuation statement [shall be $1.] on a form conforming to standards prescribed by the secretary of state for the state as a whole or by a county recorder for his individual county shall be $2, and in all other cases $3.

A termination statement signed by a person other than the secured party of record must include or be accompanied by the assignment or a statement by the secured party of record that he has assigned the security interest to the signer of the termination statement. [The uniform fee for filing and indexing such assignment or statement thereof shall be 50 cents.] If the affected secured party fails to send such a termination statement within 10 days after proper demand therefor he shall be liable to the debtor for $100, and in addition for any loss caused to the debtor by such failure.

      2.  On presentation to the filing officer of such a termination statement he must note it in the index. The filing officer shall remove from the files, mark “terminated” and send or deliver to the secured party the financing statement and any continuation statement, statement of assignment or statement of release pertaining thereto.

      3.  The uniform fee for filing and indexing a termination statement, including sending or delivering the financing statement, [shall be 50 cents.] on a form conforming to standards prescribed by the secretary of state for the state as a whole or by a county recorder for his individual county shall be $2, and in all other cases $3.

      Sec. 3.  NRS 104.9405 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      104.9405  1.  A financing statement may disclose an assignment of a security interest in the collateral described in the statement by indication in the statement of the name and address of the assignee or by an assignment itself or a copy thereof on the face or back of the statement. Either the original secured party or the assignee may sign this statement as the secured party. On presentation to the filing officer of such a financing statement the filing officer shall mark the same as provided in subsection 4 of NRS 104.9403. The uniform fee for filing, indexing and furnishing filing data for a financing statement so indicating an assignment [shall be $1.] on a form conforming to standards prescribed by the secretary of state for the state as a whole or by a county recorder for his individual county shall be $2, and in all other cases $3.

      2.  A secured party may assign of record all or a part of his rights under a financing statement by the filing of a separate written statement of assignment signed by the secured party of record and setting forth the name of the secured party of record and the debtor, the file number and the date of filing of the financing statement and the name and address of the assignee and containing a description of the collateral assigned. A copy of the assignment is sufficient as a separate statement if it complies with the preceding sentence. On presentation to the filing officer of such a separate statement, the filing officer shall mark such separate statement with the date and hour of the filing. He shall note the assignment on the index of the financing statement. The uniform fee for filing, indexing and furnishing filing data about such a separate statement of assignment [shall be $1.]

[shall be $1.] on a form conforming to standards prescribed by the secretary of state for the state as a whole or by a county recorder for his individual county shall be $2, and in all other cases $3.

      3.  After the disclosure or filing of an assignment under this section, the assignee is the secured party of record.

      Sec. 4.  NRS 104.9406 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      104.9406  A secured party of record may by his signed statement release all or a part of any collateral described in a filed financing statement. The statement of release is sufficient if it contains a description of the collateral being released, the name and address of the debtor, the name and address of the secured party, and the file number of the financing statement. Upon presentation of such a statement to the filing officer he shall mark the statement with the hour and date of filing and shall note the same upon the margin of the index of the filing of the financing statement. The uniform fee for filing and noting such a statement of release [shall be 50 cents.] on a form conforming to standards prescribed by the secretary of state for the state as a whole or by a county recorder for his individual county shall be $2, and in all other cases $3.

      Sec. 5.  NRS 104.9407 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      104.9407  1.  If the person filing any financing statement, termination statement, statement of assignment, or statement of release, furnishes the filing officer a copy thereof, the filing officer shall upon request note upon the copy the file number and date and hour of the filing of the original and deliver or send the copy to such person.

      2.  Upon request of any person, the filing officer shall issue his certificate showing whether there is on file on the date and hour stated therein, any presently effective financing statement naming a particular debtor and any statement of assignment thereof and if there is, giving the date and hour of filing of each such statement and the names and addresses of each secured party therein. The uniform fee for such a certificate shall be [$1 plus 50 cents for each financing statement and for each statement of assignment reported therein.] $3.

      Sec. 7.  NRS 247.300 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      247.300  1.  [Except as provided in NRS 247.225, 247.230, 247.235, 247.240, 247.250, 247.260, 247.265, 247.270 and 247.280, the fees of county recorders in counties wherein the total vote at the last general election did not exceed 800 and in counties wherein the total vote at the last general election exceeded 800, for the filing, indexing and safekeeping as provided by law and for the making of the required notations and endorsements thereon of mortgages of personal property and crops, for the issuing of certificates of searches as provided for by law, for filing assignments, discharges, satisfactions, releases, subordinations and waivers relating to mortgages of personal property and crops or to the lien or interest created or evidenced thereby and for issuing a certificate not under seal of any such filing shall be as follows, and not otherwise:

CHAPTER 88, SB 48

CHAPTER 88

AN ACT to amend NRS 361.157, relating to tax-exempt real estate leased to or used in a business conducted for profit, by limiting the exception with respect to federally owned real property.

 

[Approved March 6, 1967]

 

      Whereas, Chapter 432, Statutes of Nevada 1965, provides certain exceptions to the rule of taxation, established by section 2 for leased real property; and

      Whereas, It was the intention of the legislature in providing such exceptions that they be strictly construed, in accordance with the general principle of law regarding exemptions from taxation; and

      Whereas, The particular exceptions provided by paragraph (d) of subsection 1 were meant to apply only to lands made available for grazing by the named federal agencies or by any other federal agency which might hold lands suitable for grazing; and

      Whereas, The legislature has since satisfied itself that the inclusion of the words “other federal agency” for this purpose is not necessary and tends only to obscure the true meaning of the statute; and

      Whereas, The legislature now desires to amend the statute more clearly to express its originally intended meaning; now therefore,

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  NRS 361.157 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      361.157  1.  When any real estate which for any reason is exempt from taxation is leased, loaned or otherwise made available to and used by a private individual, association, partnership or corporation in connection with a business conducted for profit, it shall be subject to taxation in the same amount and to the same extent as though the lessee or user were the owner of such real estate. This section does not apply to:

      (a) Property located upon or within the limits of a public airport, park, market, fairground or upon similar property which is available to the use of the general public; or

      (b) Federal property for which payments are made in lieu of taxes in amounts equivalent to taxes which might otherwise be lawfully assessed; or

      (c) Property of any state-supported educational institution; or

      (d) Property leased or otherwise made available to and used by a private individual, association, corporation, municipal corporation, quasi-municipal corporation or a political subdivision under the provisions of the Taylor Grazing Act or by the United States Forest Service [,] or the Bureau of Reclamation of the United States Department of the Interior. [or other federal agency.]

      2.  Taxes shall be assessed to such lessees or users of real estate and collected in the same manner as taxes assessed to owners of real estate, except that such taxes shall not become a lien against the property. When due, such taxes shall constitute a debt due from the lessee or user to the county for which such taxes were assessed and if unpaid shall be recoverable by the county in the proper court of such county.

      (b) Inventory in the form of supplies, materials and equipment held by the chief; and

      (c) Receivables, due from using agencies for supplies, material and equipment delivered to them.

      3.  Upon closing the books for each fiscal year, to the extent that the total amount of the working capital and operating fund, less accounts payable, exceeds $700,000, the cash portion of the fund shall revert to the general fund in the state treasury.

      Whereas, In order to facilitate improved accounting, the division’s capital improvement budget has been placed in a separate account and the sum of $10,000 is held in reserve in that account; now, therefore,

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  1.  The state controller is authorized and directed, upon the effective date of this act, to transfer the sum of $10,000 from the capital improvement account of the division of state parks of the state department of conservation and natural resources to the division’s operating account.

      2.  Upon the directed transfer being made as provided in subsection 1, the division of state parks of the state department of conservation and natural resources is authorized to expend the moneys so transferred for its operating expenses during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1967.

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  There is hereby appropriated from the general fund in the state treasury the sum of $510.80 for the support of the office of the governor to be expended for payment of bills totaling $510.80 due the Xerox Corporation for materials heretofore furnished to the office of the governor.

For good cause shown, upon application made prior to the expiration of the 30-day period, the state engineer may, in his discretion, grant an extension of time in which to file the instruments.

      Sec. 12.  NRS 533.410 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      533.410  Should any holder of a permit from the state engineer fail, prior to the date set for such filing in his permit, to file with the state engineer proof of application of water to beneficial use, and the accompanying map, if such map is required, the state engineer shall advise the holder of the permit, by registered or certified mail, that the same is held for cancellation.

      2.  The state engineer may, upon written notice sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, advise the owner of a well who is using water therefrom without a permit to appropriate such water to cease using such water until he has complied with the laws pertaining to the appropriation of water. If the owner fails to initiate proceedings to secure such permit within 30 days from the date of such notice he shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

      3.  The date of priority of all appropriations of water from an underground source, mentioned in this section, is the date when application is made in proper from and filed in the office of the state engineer pursuant to the provisions of chapter 533 of NRS.
