      Sec. 19.  The body having authority to levy taxes within each county shall levy the taxes provided in this chapter, and all officials charged with the duty of collecting taxes shall collect such taxes at the time and in the form and manner and with like interest and penalties as other taxes are collected and when collected shall pay the same to the district ordering their levy and collection, and the payment of such collections shall be made monthly to the treasurer of the district and paid into the depository thereof to the credit of the district.

      Sec. 20.  If the taxes levied are not paid as herein provided, the property subject to the tax lien shall be sold, and the proceeds thereof shall be paid over to the district, according to provisions of the laws applicable to tax sales and redemptions.

      Sec. 21.  Whenever any indebtedness has been incurred by a district, it shall be lawful for the board to levy taxes and collect revenue for the purpose of creating a reserve fund in such amount as the board may determine, which may be used to meet the obligations of the district, for maintenance and operating charges and depreciation, and provide extension of and betterments to the improvements of the district.

      Sec. 22.  1.  The boundary of any district organized under the provisions of this chapter may be changed in the manner prescribed in sections 23 and 24, but the change of boundaries of the district shall not impair or affect its organization, nor shall it affect, impair or discharge any contract, obligation, lien or charge on which it might be liable or chargeable had such change of boundaries not been made.

      2.  Property included within or annexed to a district shall be subject to the payment of taxes and charges, as provided in section 24. Real property excluded from a district shall thereafter be subject to the levy of taxes for the payment of its proportionate share of any indebtedness of the district outstanding at the time of such exclusion. Personal property may be excluded from a district on such terms and conditions as may be prescribed by the board of the district involved.

      Sec. 23.  1.  A fee owner of real property situate in the district, or the fee owners of any real properties which are contiguous to each other and which constitute a portion of the district, may file with the board a petition praying that such lands be excluded and taken from the district.

CHAPTER 147, AB 159

Assembly Bill No. 159–Miss Herr, Messrs. McMullen and Humphrey

 

CHAPTER 147

 

AN ACT to amend chapter 645 of NRS relating to real estate brokers and real estate salesmen by creating new provisions relating to advance fees, advance fee listings, business opportunity brokers and salesmen, the accounting of use of advance fees, forms of advance fee agreements; and other matters properly relating thereto.

 

[Approved March 21, 1957]

 

      Whereas, Since 1948 a number of individuals and corporate entities, hereafter for convenience referred to as promoters, some operating with their principal or main offices in Nevada, have themselves and through their high-pressure salesmen and agents engaged in the business of making false and fraudulent misrepresentations to the owners, lessees or renters of property, hereafter for convenience referred to as owners, for the purpose of inducing the owners to execute agreements to entrust money to the promoters to be utilized by the promoters for promised services, such as advertising, distribution of brochures, and to establish contact with brokers and prospective buyers, in order to promote the sale, lease, rental or exchange of the property of the owners, such promises being made by the promoters with no intent of making a bona fide effort to render such services, and the effectiveness and efficiency of their services being grossly misrepresented by the promoters; and

 


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

ê1957 Statutes of Nevada, Page 210 (Chapter 147, AB 159)ê

 

brochures, and to establish contact with brokers and prospective buyers, in order to promote the sale, lease, rental or exchange of the property of the owners, such promises being made by the promoters with no intent of making a bona fide effort to render such services, and the effectiveness and efficiency of their services being grossly misrepresented by the promoters; and

      Whereas, The aforesaid activities are commonly referred to as the advance fee business; and

      Whereas, Newspapers and magazines of general circulation have not been found to engage in the aforesaid reprehensible practices; and

      Whereas, As a result of the aforesaid practices hundreds of owners, both within and outside of Nevada, have been deceived and defrauded by such promoters, and have lost thousands of dollars; and

      Whereas, Such promoters have sought to shield their activities under the guise of operating as mere finders or locators of buyers, or as being engaged exclusively in the advertising or publishing business, and to claim that they are not operating as real estate or business opportunity brokers or salesmen; and

      Whereas, To protect the aforesaid owners of property, as well as the general public, and to insure the general welfare, it is necessary to subject the advance fee business to regulation and to limit the persons or entities who engage in the advance fee business to those of proven honesty and integrity, and to establish a fiduciary relationship between the promoters and the owners by requiring that they be licensed as business opportunity brokers and salesmen; now, therefore,

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Chapter 645 of NRS is hereby amended by adding thereto the provisions set forth as sections 2 to 7, inclusive, of this act.

      4.  An agreement by which a person who is engaged in the business of finding, locating or promoting the sale or lease of business opportunities or real estate agrees, for an advance fee, to circularize, notify or refer business opportunity or real estate brokers or salesmen, or both, to such property which is offered for sale or lease.

      Sec. 4.  As used in this chapter, “business opportunity broker” also includes any person who engages in the business of claiming, demanding, charging, receiving, collecting or contracting for the collection of an advance fee in connection with any employment undertaken to promote the sale or lease of business opportunities or real estate by advance fee listing advertising or other offerings to sell, lease, exchange or rent property.

      1.  Where a testator otherwise directs in his will.

      2.  Where by written instrument executed inter vivos direction is given for apportionment among the beneficiaries of taxes assessed upon the specific fund dealt with in such inter vivos instrument.

      Sec. 5.  1.  A testator, settlor, or possessor of any appropriate power of appointment may direct how the estate tax shall be apportioned or allocated or grant a discretionary power to another so to direct.

      2.  Any direction as to apportionment or nonapportionment of the tax, whether contained in a will or in a nontestamentary instrument, shall be limited in its operation to the property passing thereunder unless such will or instrument otherwise directs.

      7.  The values used for federal estate tax purposes shall be the values used as the basis for apportionment.

      2.  The provisions of subsection 1 shall apply notwithstanding that the holder of a temporary interest is given rights to the corpus, but shall not apply to a common law annuity.

      Sec. 8.  1.  In all cases in which any property required to be included in the gross estate does not come into the possession of the executor or administrator, he shall be entitled, and it shall be his duty, to recover from whomever is in possession, or from the persons interested in the estate, the proportionate amount of the tax payable by the persons interested in the estate with which such persons interested in the estate are chargeable. The probate court may direct the payment of such amount of tax by such persons to the executor or administrator.

      2.  The provisions of subsection 1 shall also be applicable to persons in possession of or interested in real or personal property located in or subject to administration in another state and required to be included in the gross estate of a resident of this state, unless such other state refuses to enforce such apportionment, in which case apportionment may be made in accordance with the law which would be applied by such other state.

      3.  Any person interested in the estate from whom apportionment shall be required under subsections 1 and 2 shall also be charged with the amount of reasonable expenses, including executor’s, administrator’s and attorney’s fees, in connection with the determination of the tax and the apportionment thereof.

      Sec. 9.  1.  The probate court, upon making a determination as provided in sections 2 to 12, inclusive, shall make a decree or order directing the executor, administrator or other fiduciary to charge the determined amounts against the persons against whom the tax has been prorated insofar as he is in possession of property or interests of such persons against whom the charge may be made, and summarily directing all other persons against whom the tax has been prorated or who are in possession of property or interests of such persons to make payment of such determined amounts to such executor, administrator or other fiduciary.

      2.  Such decrees or orders may be preliminary, intermediate or final.

      5.  If an overpayment is made the court may direct appropriate reimbursement.

      Sec. 10.  The court shall retain jurisdiction until the purposes of sections 2 to 12, inclusive, have been accomplished.

Interstate Compact on Juveniles

 

The contracting states solemnly agree:

 

Article I-Findings and Purposes

 

      That juveniles who are not under proper supervision and control, or who have absconded, escaped or run away, are likely to endanger their own health, morals and welfare, and the health, morals and welfare of others. The cooperation of the states party to this compact is therefore necessary to provide for the welfare and protection of juveniles and of the public with respect to (1) cooperative supervision of delinquent juveniles on probation or parole; (2) the return, from one state to another, of delinquent juveniles who have escaped or absconded; (3) the return, from one state to another, of non-delinquent juveniles who have run away from home; and (4) additional measures for the protection of juveniles and of the public, which any two or more of the party states may find desirable to undertake cooperatively.


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

ê1957 Statutes of Nevada, Page 243 (Chapter 172, AB 128)ê

 

delinquent juveniles on probation or parole; (2) the return, from one state to another, of delinquent juveniles who have escaped or absconded; (3) the return, from one state to another, of non-delinquent juveniles who have run away from home; and (4) additional measures for the protection of juveniles and of the public, which any two or more of the party states may find desirable to undertake cooperatively. In carrying out the provisions of this compact the party states shall be guided by the non-criminal, reformative and protective policies which guide their laws concerning delinquent, neglected or dependent juveniles generally. It shall be the policy of the states party to this compact to cooperate and observe their respective responsibilities for the prompt return and acceptance of juveniles and delinquent juveniles who become subject to the provisions of this compact. The provisions of this compact shall be reasonably and liberally construed to accomplish the foregoing purposes.

 

Article II-Existing Rights and Remedies

 

      That all remedies and procedures provided by this compact shall be in addition to and not in substitution for other rights, remedies and procedures, and shall not be in derogation of parental rights and responsibilities.

 

Article III-Definitions

 

      That, for the purposes of this compact, “delinquent juvenile” means any juvenile who has been adjudged delinquent and who, at the time the provisions of this compact are invoked, is still subject to the jurisdiction of the court that has made such adjudication or to the jurisdiction or supervision of an agency or institution pursuant to an order of such court; “probation or parole” means any kind of conditional release of juveniles authorized under the laws of the states party hereto; “court” means any court having jurisdiction over delinquent, neglected or dependent children; “state” means any state, territory or possession of the United States, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico; and “residence” or any variant thereof means a place at which a home or regular place of abode is maintained.

 

Article IV-Return of Runaways

 

      (a) That the parent, guardian, person or agency entitled to legal custody of a juvenile who has not been adjudged delinquent but who has run away without the consent of such parent, guardian, person or agency may petition the appropriate court in the demanding state for the issuance of a requisition for his return. The petition shall state the name and age of the juvenile, the name of the petitioner and the basis of entitlement to the juvenile’s custody, the circumstances of his running away, his location if known at the time application is made, and such other facts as may tend to show that the juvenile who has run away is endangering his own welfare or the welfare of others and is not an emancipated minor. The petition shall be verified by affidavit, shall be executed in duplicate, and shall be accompanied by two certified copies of the document or documents on which the petitioner’s entitlement to the juvenile’s custody is based, such as birth certificates, letters of guardianship, or custody decrees.


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

ê1957 Statutes of Nevada, Page 244 (Chapter 172, AB 128)ê

 

letters of guardianship, or custody decrees. Such further affidavits and other documents as may be deemed proper may be submitted with such petition. The judge of the court to which this application is made may hold a hearing thereon to determine whether for the purposes of this compact the petitioner is entitled to the legal custody of the juvenile, whether or not it appears that the juvenile has in fact run away without consent, whether or not he is an emancipated minor, and whether or not it is in the best interest of the juvenile to compel his return to the state. If the judge determines, either with or without a hearing, that the juvenile should be returned, he shall present to the appropriate court or to the executive authority of the state where the juvenile is alleged to be located a written requisition for the return of such juvenile. Such requisition shall set forth the name and age of the juvenile, the determination of the court that the juvenile has run away without the consent of a parent, guardian, person or agency entitled to his legal custody, and that it is in the best interest and for the protection of such juvenile that he be returned. In the event that a proceeding for the adjudication of the juvenile as a delinquent, neglected or dependent juvenile is pending in the court at the time when such juvenile runs away, the court may issue a requisition for the return of such juvenile upon its own motion, regardless of the consent of the parent, guardian, person or agency entitled to legal custody, reciting therein the nature and circumstances of the pending proceeding. The requisition shall in every case be executed in duplicate and shall be signed by the judge. One copy of the requisition shall be filed with the compact administrator of the demanding state, there to remain on file subject to the provisions of law governing records of such court. Upon the receipt of a requisition demanding the return of a juvenile who has run away, the court or the executive authority to whom the requisition is addressed shall issue an order to any peace officer or other appropriate person directing him to take into custody and detain such juvenile. Such detention order must substantially recite the facts necessary to the validity of its issuance hereunder. No juvenile detained upon such order shall be delivered over to the officer whom the court demanding him shall have appointed to receive him, unless he shall first be taken forthwith before a judge of a court in the state, who shall inform him of the demand made for his return, and who may appoint counsel or guardian ad litem for him. If the judge of such court shall find that the requisition is in order, he shall deliver such juvenile over to the officer whom the court demanding him shall have appointed to receive him. The judge, however, may fix a reasonable time to be allowed for the purpose of testing the legality of the proceeding.

      Upon reasonable information that a person is a juvenile who has run away from another state party to this compact without the consent of a parent, guardian, person or agency entitled to his legal custody, such juvenile may be taken into custody without a requisition and brought forthwith before a judge of the appropriate court who may appoint counsel or guardian ad litem for such juvenile and who shall determine after a hearing whether sufficient cause exists to hold the person, subject to the order of the court, for his own protection and welfare, for such a time not exceeding 90 days as will enable his return to another state party to this compact pursuant to a requisition for his return from a court of that state.

the person, subject to the order of the court, for his own protection and welfare, for such a time not exceeding 90 days as will enable his return to another state party to this compact pursuant to a requisition for his return from a court of that state. If, at the time when a state seeks the return of a juvenile who has run away, there is pending in the state wherein he is found any criminal charge, or any proceeding to have him adjudicated a delinquent juvenile for an act committed in such state, or if he is suspected of having committed within such state a criminal offense or an act of juvenile delinquency, he shall not be returned without the consent of such state until discharged from prosecution or other form of proceeding, imprisonment, detention or supervision for such offense or juvenile delinquency. The duly accredited officers of any state party to this compact, upon the establishment of their authority and the identity of the juvenile being returned, shall be permitted to transport such juvenile through any and all states party to this compact, without interference. Upon his return to the state from which he ran away, the juvenile shall be subject to such further proceedings as may be appropriate under the laws of that state.

      (b) That the state to which a juvenile is returned under this Article shall be responsible for payment of the transportation costs of such return.

      (c) That “juvenile” as used in this Article means any person who is a minor under the law of the state of residence of the parent, guardian, person or agency entitled to the legal custody of such minor.

 

Article V-Return of Escapees and Absconders

 

      (a) That the appropriate person or authority from whose probation or parole supervision a delinquent juvenile has absconded or from whose institutional custody he has escaped shall present to the appropriate court or to the executive authority of the state where the delinquent juvenile is alleged to be located a written requisition for the return of such delinquent juvenile. Such requisition shall state the name and age of the delinquent juvenile, the particulars of his adjudication as a delinquent juvenile, the circumstances of the breach of the terms of his probation or parole or of his escape from an institution or agency vested with his legal custody or supervision, and the location of such delinquent juvenile, if known, at the time the requisition is made. The requisition shall be verified by affidavit, shall be executed in duplicate, and shall be accompanied by two certified copies of the judgment, formal adjudication, or order of commitment which subjects such delinquent juvenile to probation or parole or to the legal custody of the institution or agency concerned. Such further affidavits and other documents as may be deemed proper may be submitted with such requisition. One copy of the requisition shall be filed with the compact administrator of the demanding state, there to remain on file subject to the provisions of law governing records of the appropriate court. Upon the receipt of a requisition demanding the return of a delinquent juvenile who has absconded or escaped, the court or the executive authority to whom the requisition is addressed shall issue an order to any peace officer or other appropriate person directing him to take into custody and detain such delinquent juvenile.

shall issue an order to any peace officer or other appropriate person directing him to take into custody and detain such delinquent juvenile. Such detention order must substantially recite the fact necessary to the validity of its issuance hereunder. No delinquent juvenile detained upon such order shall be delivered over to the officer whom the appropriate person or authority demanding him shall have appointed to receive him, unless he shall first be taken forthwith before a judge of an appropriate court in the state, who shall inform him of the demand made for his return and who may appoint counsel or guardian ad litem for him. If the judge of such court shall find that the requisition is in order, he shall deliver such delinquent juvenile over to the officer whom the appropriate person or authority demanding him shall have appointed to receive him. The judge, however, may fix a reasonable time to be allowed for the purpose of testing the legality of the proceeding.

      Upon reasonable information that a person is a delinquent juvenile who has absconded while on probation or parole, or escaped from an institution or agency vested with his legal custody or supervision in any state party to this compact, such person may be taken into custody in any other state party to this compact without a requisition. But in such event, he must be taken forthwith before a judge of the appropriate court, who may appoint counsel or guardian ad litem for such person and who shall determine, after a hearing, whether sufficient cause exists to hold the person subject to the order of the court for such a time, not exceeding 90 days, as will enable his detention under a detention order issued on a requisition pursuant to this Article. If, at the time when a state seeks the return of a delinquent juvenile who has either absconded while on probation or parole or escaped from an institution or agency vested with his legal custody or supervision, there is pending in the state wherein he is detained any criminal charge or any proceeding to have him adjudicated a delinquent juvenile for an act committed in such state, or if he is suspected of having committed within such state a criminal offense or an act of juvenile delinquency, he shall not be returned without the consent of such state until discharged from prosecution or other form or proceeding, imprisonment, detention or supervision for such offense or juvenile delinquency. The duly accredited officers of any state party to this compact, upon the establishment of their authority and the identity of the delinquent juvenile being returned, shall be permitted to transport such delinquent juvenile through any and all states party to this compact, without interference. Upon his return to the state from which he escaped or absconded, the delinquent juvenile shall be subject to such further proceedings as may be appropriate under the laws of that state.

      (b) That the state to which a delinquent juvenile is returned under this Article shall be responsible for payment of the transportation costs of such return.

 

Article VI-Voluntary Return Procedure

 

      That any delinquent juvenile who has absconded while on probation or parole, or escaped from an institution or agency vested with his legal custody or supervision in any state party to this compact, and any juvenile who has run away from any state party to this compact, who is taken into custody without a requisition in another state party to this compact under the provisions of Article IV(a) or of Article V(a), may consent to his immediate return to the state from which he absconded, escaped or ran away.


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

ê1957 Statutes of Nevada, Page 247 (Chapter 172, AB 128)ê

 

juvenile who has run away from any state party to this compact, who is taken into custody without a requisition in another state party to this compact under the provisions of Article IV(a) or of Article V(a), may consent to his immediate return to the state from which he absconded, escaped or ran away. Such consent shall be given by the juvenile or delinquent juvenile and his counsel or guardian ad litem if any, by executing or subscribing a writing, in the presence of a judge of the appropriate court, which states that the juvenile or delinquent juvenile and his counsel or guardian ad litem, if any, consent to his return to the demanding state. Before such consent shall be executed or subscribed, however, the judge, in the presence of counsel or guardian ad litem, if any, shall inform the juvenile or delinquent juvenile of his rights under this compact. When the consent has been duly executed, it shall be forwarded to and filed with the compact administrator of the state in which the court is located and the judge shall direct the officer having the juvenile or delinquent juvenile in custody to deliver him to the duly accredited officer or officers of the state demanding his return, and shall cause to be delivered to such officer or officers a copy of the consent. The court may, however, upon the request of the state to which the juvenile or delinquent juvenile is being returned, order him to return unaccompanied to such state and shall provide him with a copy of such court order; in such event a copy of the consent shall be forwarded to the compact administrator of the state to which said juvenile or delinquent juvenile is ordered to return.

 

Article VII-Cooperative Supervision of Probationers and Parolees

 

      (a) That the duly constituted judicial and administrative authorities of a state party to this compact (herein called “sending state”) may permit any delinquent juvenile within such state, placed on probation or parole, to reside in any other state party to this compact (herein called “receiving state”) while on probation or parole, and the receiving state shall accept such delinquent juvenile, if the parent, guardian or person entitled to the legal custody of such delinquent juvenile is residing or undertakes to reside within the receiving state. Before granting such permission, opportunity shall be given to the receiving state to make such investigations as it deems necessary. The authorities of the sending state shall send to the authorities of the receiving state copies of pertinent court orders, social case studies and all other available information which may be of value to and assist the receiving state in supervising a probationer or parolee under this compact. A receiving state, in its discretion, may agree to accept supervision of a probationer or parolee in cases where the parent, guardian or person entitled to the legal custody of the delinquent juvenile is not a resident of the receiving state, and if so accepted the sending state may transfer supervision accordingly.

      (b) That each receiving state will assume the duties of visitation and of supervision over any such delinquent juvenile and in the exercise of those duties will be governed by the same standards of visitation and supervision that prevail for its own delinquent juveniles released on probation or parole.

      (c) That, after consultation between the appropriate authorities of the sending state and of the receiving state as to the desirability and necessity of returning such a delinquent juvenile, the duly accredited officers of a sending state may enter a receiving state and there apprehend and retake any such delinquent juvenile on probation or parole.

of the sending state and of the receiving state as to the desirability and necessity of returning such a delinquent juvenile, the duly accredited officers of a sending state may enter a receiving state and there apprehend and retake any such delinquent juvenile on probation or parole. For that purpose, no formalities will be required, other than establishing the authority of the officer and the identity of the delinquent juvenile to be retaken and returned. The decision of the sending state to retake a delinquent juvenile on probation or parole shall be conclusive upon and not reviewable within the receiving state, but if, at the time the sending state seeks to retake a delinquent juvenile on probation or parole, there is pending against him within the receiving state any criminal charge or any proceeding to have him adjudicated a delinquent juvenile for any act committed in such state, or if he is suspected of having committed within such state a criminal offense or an act of juvenile delinquency, he shall not be returned without the consent of the receiving state until discharged from prosecution or other form of proceeding, imprisonment, detention or supervision for such offense or juvenile delinquency. The duly accredited officers of the sending state shall be permitted to transport delinquent juveniles being so returned through any and all states party to this compact, without interference.

      (d) That the sending state shall be responsible under this Article for paying the costs of transporting any delinquent juvenile to the receiving state or of returning any delinquent juvenile to the sending state.

 

Article VIII-Responsibility for Costs

 

      (a) That the provisions of Articles IV(b), V(b) and VII(d) of this compact shall not be construed to alter or affect any internal relationship among the departments, agencies and officers of and in the government of a party state, or between a party state and its subdivisions, as to the payment of costs, or responsibilities therefor.

      (b) That nothing in this compact shall be construed to prevent any party state or subdivision thereof from asserting any right against any person, agency or other entity in regard to costs for which such party state or subdivision thereof may be responsible pursuant to Articles IV(b), V(b) or VII(d) of this compact.

 

Article IX-Detention Practices

 

      That, to every extent possible, it shall be the policy of states party to this compact that no juvenile or delinquent juvenile shall be placed or detained in any prison, jail or lockup nor be detained or transported in association with criminal, vicious or dissolute persons.

 

Article X-Supplementary Agreements

 

      That the duly constituted administrative authorities of a state party to this compact may enter into supplementary agreements with any other state or states party hereto for the cooperative care, treatment and rehabilitation of delinquent juveniles whenever they shall find that such agreements will improve the facilities or programs available for such care, treatment and rehabilitation. Such care, treatment and rehabilitation may be provided in an institution located within any state entering into such supplementary agreement.


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

ê1957 Statutes of Nevada, Page 249 (Chapter 172, AB 128)ê

 

rehabilitation may be provided in an institution located within any state entering into such supplementary agreement. Such supplementary agreements shall (1) provide the rates to be paid for the care, treatment and custody of such delinquent juveniles, taking into consideration the character of facilities, services and subsistence furnished; (2) provide that the delinquent juvenile shall be given a court hearing prior to his being sent to another state for care, treatment and custody; (3) provide that the state receiving such a delinquent juvenile in one of its institutions shall act solely as agent for the state sending such delinquent juvenile; (4) provide that the sending state shall at all times retain jurisdiction over delinquent juveniles sent to an institution in another state; (5) provide for reasonable inspection of such institutions by the sending state; (6) provide that the consent of the parent, guardian, person or agency entitled to the legal custody of said delinquent juvenile shall be secured prior to his being sent to another state; and (7) make provision for such other matters and details as shall be necessary to protect the rights and equities of such delinquent juveniles and of the cooperating states.

 

Article XI-Acceptance of Federal and Other Aid

 

      That any state party to this compact may accept any and all donations, gifts and grants of money, equipment and services from the federal or any local government, or any agency thereof and from any person, firm or corporation, for any of the purposes and functions of this compact, and may receive and utilize the same subject to the terms, conditions and regulations governing such donations, gifts and grants.

      That the governor of each state party to this compact shall designate an officer who, acting jointly with like officers of other party states, shall promulgate rules and regulations to carry out more effectively the terms and provisions of this compact.

When executed it shall have the full force and effect of law within such state, the form of execution to be in accordance with the laws of the executing state.

 

Article XIV-Renunciation

 

      That this compact shall continue in force and remain binding upon each executing state until renounced by it. Renunciation of this compact shall be by the same authority which executed it, by sending six months’ notice in writing of its intention to withdraw from the compact to the other states party hereto. The duties and obligations of a renouncing state under Article VII hereof shall continue as to parolees and probationers residing therein at the time of withdrawal until retaken or finally discharged. Supplementary agreements entered into under Article X hereof shall be subject to renunciation as provided by such supplementary agreements, and shall not be subject to the six months’ renunciation notice of the present Article.

Article XV-Severability

 

      That the provisions of this compact shall be severable and if any phrase, clause, sentence or provision of this compact is declared to be contrary to the constitution of any participating state or of the United States or the applicability thereof to any government, agency, person or circumstance is held invalid, the validity of the remainder of this compact and the applicability thereof to any government, agency, person or circumstance shall not be affected thereby. If this compact shall be held contrary to the constitution of any state participating therein, the compact shall remain in full force and effect as to the remaining states and in full force and effect as to the state affected as to all severable matters.

      Sec. 3.  Pursuant to such compact, the governor is hereby authorized and empowered to designate an officer who shall be the compact administrator and who, acting jointly with similar officers of other party states, shall promulgate rules and regulations to carry out more effectively the terms of the compact. Such compact administrator shall serve subject to the pleasure of the governor.

      Sec. 5.  Funds to carry out the provisions of this chapter shall be provided by direct legislative appropriation from the general fund and shall be paid out on claims as other claims against the state are paid. All such claims shall be approved by the compact administrator.

[Approved March 26, 1957]

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The board of county commissioners of Lyon County, State of Nevada, is hereby authorized and empowered, in addition to the powers elsewhere conferred upon the board, to establish, construct, otherwise acquire, reconstruct, improve, extend or better, either a county courthouse or jail, or both, and improvements incidental thereto, to equip and furnish the same, and to issue general obligation bonds therefor in not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of $150,000. (Such building, incidental improvements, equipment and furnishings are hereinafter sometimes designated as the facilities.)

      Sec. 2.  The board of county commissioners is hereby authorized and empowered to submit to the qualified electors of the county a question or questions authorizing the issuance of general obligation bonds to defray the cost of such facilities, at a special, primary or general election, held in compliance with NRS 350.010 to 350.200, inclusive, and all laws amendatory thereof, and all other election laws of the state so far as the same can be made applicable and which are not inconsistent herewith. In the event a majority of the white ballots and a majority of the colored ballots on any such questions both are in favor of the issuance of such bonds, the proposal to issue them shall have carried, and the board of county commissioners may thereafter proceed to issue the bonds as herein provided. If a majority of either the white ballots or the colored ballots, or a majority of both, on such question, is against the issuance of the bonds, then such proposal shall have failed and the board shall be without power to issue the bonds as herein provided.

the white ballots or the colored ballots, or a majority of both, on such question, is against the issuance of the bonds, then such proposal shall have failed and the board shall be without power to issue the bonds as herein provided. The submission of a question of issuing bonds as herein provided shall not prevent or prohibit the submission of the same or a similar question at a subsequent election or elections called for that purpose.

      Sec. 3.  The bonds shall be of convenient denominations, shall be negotiable in form, shall mature serially in regular numerical order at annual or other designated intervals in substantially equal amounts of principal or upon an amortization plan for the bonds so that substantially equal amounts shall be required annually for the payment of the principal of and interest on the bonds, except for the first or last installment, or both, which may be for greater or lesser amounts, or both, than required by either of the aforesaid limitations, or in amounts otherwise designated and fixed by the board, commencing not later than 3 years from the date of the bonds and ending not later than 20 years from such date, and shall bear interest at a rate or rates of not more than 5 percent per annum, the interest on each bond to be payable annually, semiannually, or at other designated intervals. The bonds shall be made payable in lawful money of the United States of America, at such place or places within or without the State of Nevada as may be provided by the board, and the bonds shall have 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 coupon shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it is attached. The bonds and coupons shall be signed by the chairman of the board of county commissioners and countersigned by the treasurer of the county, and the bonds shall be authenticated by the official seal of the county. Facsimile signatures may be used on the coupons. The board of county commissioners may provide for the registration of the bonds for payment as to principal or interest, or both, and may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to maturity, upon such terms and upon the payment of such premium, if any, as may be determined by the board in the ordinance authorizing the issuance of the bonds.

      Sec. 4.  The board is hereby authorized to sell such bonds at one time, or from time to time, at public or private sale, as the board may determine, for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest; provided, however, that none of the bonds shall be issued, sold or delivered after 3 years from the effective date of this act. No discount or commission shall be allowed or paid on or for any such sale to any purchaser or bidder, directly or indirectly, provided that the board may employ legal, fiscal, engineering or other expert services in connection with the acquisition, reconstruction, improvement, extension or betterment of such facilities and with the authorization, issuance and sale of such bonds.

      Sec. 5.  The general obligation bonds authorized to be issued under the provisions of this act shall be payable from general (ad valorem) taxes levied against all the taxable property in the county, including the net proceeds of mines; and so far as legally possible, within the limitations of Section 2 of Article X of the Constitution of the State of Nevada, the bonds shall be payable as to both principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, to be levied on all taxable property within the boundaries of the county, and without regard to any statutory tax limitations now or hereafter existing.

limitations of Section 2 of Article X of the Constitution of the State of Nevada, the bonds shall be payable as to both principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, to be levied on all taxable property within the boundaries of the county, and without regard to any statutory tax limitations now or hereafter existing. It shall be the duty of the board and of any other body as may be charged with the duty of levying taxes therein, annually in due season to provide for the levy of taxes fully sufficient, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to assure the prompt payment of all such principal and interest as they become due. In any year in which the total taxes levied against the taxable property in the county by all overlapping units therein may exceed the limitation of 5 cents on the dollar imposed by Section 2 of Article X of the Constitution of the State of Nevada, and it shall become necessary by reason thereof to reduce the levies made by any or all such units, the reduction so made shall be in taxes levied by such unit or units for purposes other than the payment of their bonded indebtedness, and the taxes levied hereafter for the payment of bonded indebtedness shall always enjoy a priority over taxes levied by each such unit for all other purposes where reduction is necessary in order to comply with the limitations of such Section 2 of Article X. Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent the county from applying other funds that may be in the treasury and available for that purpose to the payment of such interest and principal as the same respectively mature, and upon such payments the levy or levies therefor provided may thereupon to that extent be diminished.

      Sec. 6.  The ordinance or ordinances providing for the issuance of such bonds may state the bonds shall 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. 7.  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 any part thereof, it being intended that this act shall provide a separate method of accomplishing its objectives, and not an exclusive one.

      Sec. 8.  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 this state or any subdivision thereof.

      Sec. 9.  It shall be legal for the State of Nevada and any of its agencies, departments 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. 10.  This act being necessary to secure and preserve the public health, safety, and convenience and welfare, it shall be liberally construed to effect its purpose.

      Sec. 11.  If any provision of this act or the application thereof to any person, association, corporation, or circumstances is held invalid, such invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications of this act which can be given effect without the invalid provision or application, and to this extent the provisions of this act are declared to be severable.
