Assessment on lands to pay interest on outstanding bonds

[Senate Bill No. 125–Senator Penrose]

 

Chap. 126–An Act to amend section twenty-seven of an act entitled “An act to provide for the organization and government of irrigation districts, for the irrigation and drainage of lands and other related undertakings thereby, and for the acquisition and distribution of water and other property, construction, operation and maintenance of works, diversion, storage, distribution, collection, and carriage of water, cooperation with the United States, and matters properly connected therewith,” approved March 19, 1919.

 

[Approved March 21, 1921]

 

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

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Section twenty-seven of said act is hereby amended so as to read as follows:

      Section 27.  At its regular meeting in October the board of directors shall levy an assessment upon the lands in said district in accordance with the provisions of this act, which assessment shall be sufficient to raise the annual interest on the outstanding bonds. At the expiration of ten years after a bond issue, or such other period as may be authorized, the board must increase said assessment as may be necessary from year to year to raise a sum sufficient to pay the principal of the outstanding bonds of that issue as they mature. The secretary of the board shall compute and enter in a separate column of the assessment book or books the respective sums to be paid as an assessment on the property therein enumerated. Except as otherwise provided herein, assessments made for any of the other purposes of this act shall be made and levied as above provided and entered in appropriate columns of the assessment book or books.


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

ê1921 Statutes of Nevada, Page 203 (CHAPTER 126, SB 125)ê

 

      In case of failure or refusal of the board of directors to levy an assessment as in this section provided, then, in the event such assessment has not otherwise been levied, it shall be the duty of the board of county commissioners of the county in which the office of the district is located to levy such assessment at its next regular meeting, or at a special meeting called for such purpose. The state board of irrigation district bond commissioners, at any time upon obtaining knowledge of such failure or refusal, shall have power, and it shall be their duty, to forthwith levy such assessment. It shall be the duty of the district attorney of the county in which the office of any irrigation district is located, at the time such assessment should be made, to ascertain the fact in respect to the same, and if such assessment has not been made by the board of directors as required, to immediately notify the said board of county commissioners, the state board of irrigation district bond commissioners, and the attorney-general in respect to such failure. It shall be the duty of the district attorney and the attorney-general to aid in obtaining the earliest possible assessment following such failure or refusal of the district board to act. Where the last preceding assessment made will raise a sufficient revenue for the purposes of this section, in the event no other assessment is made, such assessment shall be deemed to have been levied for succeeding years, so long as it will produce the revenue required, and the taxes shall be collected in the same manner, and all officers shall perform the same duties in respect thereto, as though such assessment had been made for the particular year by the board of directors of the district. Where the assessment which should have been levied can be determined by a mere mathematical computation based on the relation between the amount to be raised for interest or interest and the redemption of bonds for any particular year and the apportionment of benefits in the district, such assessment shall be deemed to have been made, and the taxes based thereon shall be collected the same as though such assessment had been regularly levied by the board of directors of the district.

[Approved March 21, 1921]

 

      Whereas, It is the ambition and moral duty of the people of the United States to provide farms for as many as possible of our honorably discharged soldiers in the recent world’s war, and there are now approximately 650,000 acres of unreclaimed but fertile land in Humboldt and Pershing Counties, extending for a distance of about 125 miles from the northern part of Paradise valley in a southwesterly direction along the Little Humboldt river and the Humboldt river to the south boundary line of Pershing County, also along several adjacent and tributary valleys, which can be reclaimed with water; and

      Whereas, It is believed that there is a large amount of unappropriated water in the Owyhee river which can be diverted in the northwestern part of Elko County and applied to the reclamation of said lands, and the president of the Winnemucca chamber of commerce, acting as trustee, has applied to appropriate said waters and conduct the same to the said lands with the purpose of imploring the federal government, on behalf of such soldiers, to construct such irrigation project; and

      Whereas, In order to properly demonstrate to the federal government the practicability and feasibility of constructing such project and reclaiming such lands it will be necessary to make preliminary surveys and compute the approximate cost of construction and collect other data concerning such project; now, therefore, it is hereby enacted as follows:

 

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

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  A commission is hereby created, to be known as the Owyhee river development commission of Nevada, to consist of the state engineer of the State of Nevada and two other citizens of the State of Nevada, to be appointed by the governor. Two of said commissioners shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Within thirty days after the passage and approval of this act the governor shall appoint said commissioners and they shall hold office until the governor shall conclude they have completed their duties, but not longer than two years from the passage of this act.

The commissioners shall employ such help as they deem necessary to complete the preliminary work, plans, and estimates as expeditiously as possible to present the same to Congress and the federal government as speedily as possible, and the compensation and expense of such help shall be paid out of the fund hereinafter created.

      Sec. 3.  Within a reasonable time after the appointment of the members of said commission they shall meet upon the call of the state engineer of the State of Nevada, who shall be chairman of said commission, and thereafter they shall meet at the call of the chairman. The commission shall elect one of their members secretary. The commission shall audit all bills for expenses and per diem of its members and for wages and expenses of its employees, and when the same shall have been certified to by the chairman and secretary, the secretary shall file the same with the state board of examiners for approval, and the same shall be paid out of any moneys appropriated for that purpose.

      Sec. 4.  Immediately after the first meeting the commissioners shall proceed to ascertain the flow of water in said Owyhee river and its tributaries; the amount of water already appropriated, and the amount unappropriated which can be conducted onto the said lands; the sites, size, and character of dams necessary; the dimensions and courses of canals and ditches necessary to conduct water onto the said lands; the sites and character of natural and other storage reservoirs necessary for storage of such waters; a description of the land that can be covered economically by such water; a description of the unappropriated land and the land held in private ownership within said proposed system. They shall also negotiate with the Central Pacific railway company and other individual owners, owning wild and unirrigated land within said project, for options, and they shall try to obtain the same for the least possible figure, for purchase either by the federal government or by a duly organized irrigation district, or by the soldiers settling on such lands under the proposed project, with terms of payment as lenient for the settler as possible. They shall endeavor to have the unappropriated lands within such project withdrawn from entry so as to preserve the same for the soldiers settling on such lands under said proposed project. They shall also do and perform each and every other act and thing necessary or conducive to presenting said project to Congress and the federal government as a practicable and feasible irrigation project, with the sole object of preserving, holding, and obtaining the same for the benefit of honorably discharged soldiers.

Chap. 161–An Act to amend an act entitled “An act relating to the compensation of injured workmen in the industries of this state and the compensation to their dependents where such injuries result in death, creating an industrial insurance commission, providing for the creation and disbursement of funds for the compensation and care of workmen injured in the course of employment, and defining and regulating the liability of employers to their employees; and repealing all acts and parts of acts in conflict with this act,” approved March 15, 1913, and as amended by an act approved March 22, 1915, and as amended by an act approved March 28, 1917, and as amended by an act approved March 28, 1919.

 

[Approved March 22, 1921]

 

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

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Section 25 of the above-entitled act, as amended by an act approved March 22, 1915, and as amended by an act approved March 27, 1917, and as amended by an act approved March 28, 1919, is hereby amended to read as follows:

      Section 25.  Every employee in the employ of an employer within the provisions of this act, who shall be injured by accident arising out of and in course of employment, or his dependents as hereinafter defined, shall be entitled to receive the following compensation:

 

(A) Death Benefits

      If the injury causes death, the compensation shall be known as a death benefit, and shall be payable in the amount and to and for the benefit of the persons following:

      1.  Burial expenses, not to exceed one hundred and twenty-five ($125) dollars, in addition to the compensation payable under this act.

      2.  To the widow, if there is no child, thirty per centum of the average wage of the deceased. This compensation shall be paid until her death or remarriage, with two years’ compensation in one sum upon remarriage.

      4.  To the widow or widower, if there is a child or children, the compensation payable under clause one (1) or clause two (2), and in addition the additional amount of ten per centum of such wage for each such child until the age of eighteen years. In case of the subsequent death of such surviving wife (or dependent husband) any surviving child of the deceased employee shall have his compensation increased to fifteen (15) per centum of such wages, and the same shall be payable until he shall reach the age of eighteen years; provided, that the total amount payable shall in no case exceed sixty-six and two-thirds per cent of such wage.

Death benefits specified

ing wife (or dependent husband) any surviving child of the deceased employee shall have his compensation increased to fifteen (15) per centum of such wages, and the same shall be payable until he shall reach the age of eighteen years; provided, that the total amount payable shall in no case exceed sixty-six and two-thirds per cent of such wage. If the children have a guardian other than the surviving widow or widower, the compensation on account of such children may be paid to such guardian. The compensation payable on account of any child shall cease when he dies, marries, or reaches the age of eighteen years, or if over eighteen years, and incapable of self-support, becomes capable of self-support.

      5.  If there be a surviving child or children of the deceased under the age of eighteen years, but no surviving wife (or dependent husband) then for the support of each child until the age of eighteen years, fifteen per centum of the wages of the deceased; provided, that the aggregate shall in no case exceed sixty-six and two-thirds per centum of such wages.

      6.  If there be no surviving wife (or dependent husband) or child under the age eighteen years, there shall be paid to a parent, if wholly dependent for support upon the deceased employee at the time of his death, twenty-five per centum of the average monthly wage of the deceased during dependency, with an added allowance of ten per centum if two dependent parents survive; to the brothers or sisters, under the age of eighteen years, if one is wholly dependent upon the deceased employee for support at the time of injury causing death, twenty per centum of the average monthly wage for the support of such brother or sister, until of the age of eighteen years. If more than one brother or sister is wholly dependent, thirty per centum of the average monthly wage at the time of injury, causing death, divided among such dependents share and share alike. If there is no one of them wholly dependent, but one or more partly dependent, ten per centum divided among such dependents share and share alike.

      7.  In all other cases, questions of total or partial dependency shall be determined in accordance with the facts as the facts may be at the time of the injury. If the deceased employee leaves dependents only partially dependent upon his earnings for support at the time of the injury causing his death, the monthly compensation to be paid shall be equal to the same proportion of the monthly payments for the benefit of persons totally dependent as the amount contributed by the employee to such partial dependents bears to the average wage of deceased at the time of the injury resulting in his death. The duration of such compensation to partial dependents shall be fixed by the commission in accordance with the facts shown, but in no case exceed compensation for one hundred months.

      8.  Compensation to the widow or widower shall be for the use and benefit of such widow or widower, and of the dependent children, and the commission may, from time to time, apportion such compensation between them in such way as it deems best for the interests of all beneficiaries.

      If a dependent to whom a death benefit is to be paid is an alien not residing in the United States, the compensation shall be only sixty (60%) per cent of the amount or amounts above specified.

      9.  Any excess of wages over one hundred and twenty ($120) dollars a month shall not be taken into account in computing compensation for death benefits.

      10.  In such cases where compensation is awarded to the widow, dependent children, or persons wholly dependent, no lump-sum settlements shall be allowed.

      11.  In case of the death of any dependent specified in the foregoing enumeration before the expiration of the time named in the award, funeral expenses not to exceed one hundred and twenty-five ($125) dollars shall be paid.

 

(B) Total Disability

      1.  Temporary total disability: For temporary total disability, if there be no one residing in the United States totally dependent upon the workman at the time of the injury, compensation of sixty (60%) per cent of the average monthly wage, but not more than seventy-two ($72) dollars nor less than thirty ($30) dollars per month, but not exceeding one hundred months, during the period of such disability, total amount not to exceed seven thousand two hundred ($7,200) dollars; if there be persons residing in the United States totally dependent for support upon the workman, compensation as provided herein with an additional allowance of ten ($10) dollars per month for such dependents during the period of such disability.

      2.  Permanent total disability: In cases of total disability adjudged to be permanent, compensation of sixty (60%) per cent of the average monthly wage, but not less than thirty ($30) dollars per month nor more than sixty ($60) dollars per month during the life of the injured person; provided, in cases of permanent total disability, if the character of the injury is such as to render the workman so physically helpless as to require the services of a constant attendant, an additional allowance of thirty ($30) dollars per month may be made so long as such requirements shall continue, but such increase shall not obtain or be operative while the workman is receiving hospital care under or pursuant to the provisions of section 23 of this act.

      In cases of the following specified injuries, in the absence of proof to the contrary, the disability caused thereby shall be deemed total and permanent:

      1.  The total and permanent loss of sight of both eyes.

      (g) The loss of more than one phalange of the thumb or finger shall be considered as the loss of the entire finger or thumb; provided, however, that in no case shall the amount received for more than one finger exceed the amount provided in this schedule for the loss of a hand.

      (h) For the loss of a great toe, seven (7) months.

      (i) For the loss of one of the other toes other than the great toe, two and one-half (2 1/2) months.

      (u) For the partial loss of use of a finger, toe, arm, hand, foot, leg, or partial loss of sight or hearing, fifty (50%) per cent of the average monthly wage during that proportion of the number of months in the foregoing schedule provided for the complete loss of use of such member, or complete loss of sight or hearing, which the partial loss of use thereof bears to the total loss of use of such member or total loss of sight or hearing.

      (v) Facial disfigurement: For permanent disfigurement about the head or face, which shall include injury to or loss of teeth, the commission may allow such sum for compensation thereof as it may deem just, in accordance with the proof submitted, for a period not to exceed twelve (12) months.

      (w) In all cases of permanent partial disability, not otherwise specified in the foregoing schedule, the percentage of disability to the total disability shall be determined. For the purpose of computing compensation for a disability that is partial in character but permanent in quality, fifty (50%) per cent of the average monthly wage not to exceed the sum of sixty ($60) dollars per month for the period of one (1) month shall represent a one (1%) per cent disability.

If the county in which such district is located has levied a total tax for county school purposes, exclusive of school bonds and interest thereon, amounting to 40 cents on the $100 assessed valuation of such county, the state shall provide from said state school relief fund a sum of money equal to not more than $5 per census pupil for such relief apportionment to the district; provided, that no district shall receive less than $50 relief apportionment under the provision of this act.

The person, firm or corporation so employing the unlicensed engineer must immediately notify the inspector of mines, who is hereby made ex officio chairman of all examining boards; but no owner, renter or user of any of the hoisting machinery aforesaid shall be allowed to so employ unlicensed hoisting engineers for more than thirty days in any one calendar year; and it shall be unlawful, except as stated in this section, for any person, firm or corporation to employ any person not duly licensed as a hoisting engineer, within the meaning of this act, to run or operate any steam, electric, gas, air, or any other hoisting machinery subject to the provisions of this act.
