the prosecuting attorney of his action. The prosecuting attorney shall proceed diligently to enforce the order.

      Sec. 55.  1.  Upon registration, the confirmed registered foreign support order shall be treated in the same manner as a support order issued by a court of this state. It has the same effect and is subject to the same procedures, defenses and proceedings for reopening, modifying, vacating or staying as a support order of this state and may be enforced and satisfied in like manner.

      2.  The obligor has 20 days after the mailing of notice of the registration in which to petition the court to vacate the registration or for other relief. If he does not so petition, the registered support order is confirmed.

      3.  At the hearing to enforce the registered support order, the obligor may present only matters that would be available to him as defenses in an action to enforce a foreign money judgment concerning any arrearages which have accrued thereunder. If he shows to the court that an appeal from the order is pending or will be taken or that a stay of execution has been granted, the court shall stay enforcement of the order until the appeal is concluded, the time for appeal has expired or the order is vacated, upon satisfactory proof that the obligor has furnished security for payment of the support ordered as required by the rendering state. If the obligor shows to the court any ground upon which enforcement of a support order of this state may be stayed or modified, the court shall stay enforcement of the order, or modify it, for an appropriate period, if the obligor furnishes the same security for payment of the support ordered that is required for a support order of this state.

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.

      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.

      4.  Demand or require, directly or indirectly, a dealer to pay any amount of money which is projected or proposed for the advertisement, display or promotion of any motor vehicle which is being sold under franchise, when such advertisement, display or promotion works to the detriment, embarrassment or financial disadvantage of such dealer, unless such dealer has agreed thereto in writing.

      Sec. 5.  Any person who is injured in his business or property by a violation of any provision in sections 2 to 8, inclusive, of this act, or any person so injured because he refuses to accede to a proposal for an arrangement which, if consummated, would be in violation of sections 2 to 8, inclusive, of this act, may bring a civil action in the district court in which the dealer’s place of business is located to enjoin further violations and to recover the actual damages sustained by him together with the costs of the suit, including a reasonable attorney’s fee.

      2.  If the new franchise is given by a manufacturer, distributor or factory branch for the sale of the same make of vehicle in the same area of responsibility as that covered in the canceled or terminated franchise, such act shall be prima facie evidence that the new franchise replaced the canceled or terminated franchise.

      Sec. 8.  Nothing in sections 2 to 8, inclusive, of this act shall be construed to impair the obligations of a contract or to prevent a manufacturer, distributor, representative or any other person, whether or not licensed under sections 2 to 8, inclusive, of this act, from requiring performance of a written contract entered into with any licensee under sections 2 to 8, inclusive, of this act, nor shall the requirement of such performance constitute a violation of any of the provisions of sections 2 to 8, inclusive, of this act; but any such contract, or the terms thereof, requiring performance, shall have been freely entered into and executed between the contracting parties.

      (a) If received as rent on a lease or extension payments on a lease, the receipts are income.

      (b) If received from a production payment, the receipts are income to the extent of any factor for interest or its equivalent provided in the governing instrument.

Twenty-seven and one-half percent of the gross receipts, not to exceed 50 percent of the net receipts remaining after payment of all expenses, direct and indirect, computed without allowance for depletion, shall be added to principal as an allowance for depletion.

      Sec. 20.  1.  Except as otherwise provided in this section, a portion of the net proceeds of sale of any part of principal which has not produced an average net income of at least 1 percent per year of its inventory value for more than a year, including as income the value of any beneficial use of the property by the income beneficiary, shall be treated as delayed income to which the income beneficiary is entitled as provided in this section.

use of the property by the income beneficiary, shall be treated as delayed income to which the income beneficiary is entitled as provided in this section. The net proceeds of sale are the gross proceeds received, including the value of any property received in substitution for the property disposed of, less the expenses, including capital gains tax, if any, incurred in disposition and less any carrying charges paid while the property was underproductive.

      2.  The sum allocated as delayed income is the difference between the net proceeds and the amount which, had it been invested at simple interest at 4 percent per year while the property was underproductive, would have produced the net proceeds. This sum, plus any carrying charges and expenses previously charged against income while the property was underproductive, less any income received by the income beneficiary from the property and less the value of any beneficial use of the property by the income beneficiary, is income, and the balance is principal.

      3.  An income beneficiary or his estate is entitled to delayed income under this section as if it accrued from day to day during the time he was a beneficiary.

      4.  If principal subject to this section is disposed of by conversion into property which cannot be apportioned easily, including land or mortgages (for example, realty acquired by or in lieu of foreclosure), the income beneficiary is entitled to the net income from any property or obligation into which the original principal is converted while the substituted property or obligation is held. If within 5 years after the conversion the substituted property has not been further converted into easily apportionable property, no allocation as provided in this section shall be made.

      Sec. 21.  1.  The following charges shall be made against income:

      (a) Ordinary expenses incurred in connection with the administration, management or preservation of the trust property, including regularly recurring taxes assessed against any portion of the principal, water rates, premiums on insurance taken upon the interests of the income beneficiary, remainderman or trustee, interest paid by the trustee, and ordinary repairs.

      (b) A reasonable allowance for depreciation on property subject to depreciation under generally accepted accounting principles, but no allowance shall be made for depreciation of that portion of any real property used by a beneficiary as a residence or for depreciation of any property held by the trustee on the effective date of this act for which the trustee is not then making an allowance for depreciation.

      (c) One-half of court costs, attorney’s fees and other fees on periodic judicial accounting, unless the court directs otherwise.

      (d) Court costs, attorney’s fees and other fees on other accountings or judicial proceedings if the matter primarily concerns the income interest, unless the court directs otherwise.

      (e) One-half of the trustee’s regular compensation, whether based on a percentage of principal or income, and all expenses reasonably incurred for current management of principal and application of income.

      (f) Any tax levied upon receipts defined as income under sections 2 to 25, inclusive, of this act or the trust instrument and payable by the trustee.

      2.  If charges against income are of unusual amount, the trustee may by means of reserves or other reasonable means charge them over a reasonable period of time and withhold from distribution sufficient sums to regularize distributions.

by means of reserves or other reasonable means charge them over a reasonable period of time and withhold from distribution sufficient sums to regularize distributions.

      Sec. 22.  The following charges shall be made against principal:

      1.  Trustee’s compensation not chargeable to income under paragraphs (d) and (e) of subsection 1 of section 21 of this act, special compensation of trustees, expenses reasonably incurred in connection with principal, court costs and attorney’s fees primarily concerning matters of principal and trustee’s compensation computed on principal as an acceptance, distribution or termination fee.

      2.  Charges not provided for in subsection 1 of section 21 of this act, including the cost of investing and reinvesting principal, the payments on principal of an indebtedness, including a mortgage amortized by periodic payments of principal, expenses for preparation of property for rental or sale, and, unless the court directs otherwise, expenses incurred in maintaining or defending any action to construe the trust or protect it or the property or assure the title of any trust property.

      3.  Extraordinary repairs or expenses incurred in making a capital improvement to principal, including special assessments, but a trustee may establish an allowance for depreciation out of income to the extent permitted by paragraph (b) of subsection 1 of section 21 of this act and by section 16 of this act.

      4.  Any tax levied upon profit, gain or other receipts allocated to principal, notwithstanding denomination of the tax as an income tax by the taxing authority.

      5.  If an estate or inheritance tax is levied in respect of a trust in which both an income beneficiary and a remainderman have an interest, any amount apportioned to the trust, including interest and penalties, even though the income beneficiary also has rights in the principal.

      Sec. 23.  Regularly recurring charges payable from income shall be apportioned to the same extent and in the same manner that income is apportioned under section 12 of this act.

      Sec. 24.  Except as specifically provided in the trust instrument, the will or sections 2 to 25, inclusive, of this act, sections 2 to 25, inclusive, of this act apply to any receipt or expense received or incurred after the effective date of this act by any trust or decedent’s estate, whether established before or after the effective date of this act and whether the asset involved was acquired by the trustee before or after the effective date of this act.

      Sec. 25.  Sections 2 to 25, inclusive, of this act shall be so construed as to effectuate its general purpose to make uniform the law of those states which enact it.

CHAPTER 434, SB 483

Senate Bill No. 483–Committee on Federal, State and Local Governments

CHAPTER 434

AN ACT relating to public securities; eliminating conflicting amendments to the charters of the cities of Reno and Sparks.

 

[Approved April 16, 1969]

 

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

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Section 4 of Article XVIII of the charter of the City of Reno, being chapter 102, Statutes of Nevada 1903, as added by chapter 204, Statutes of Nevada 1937, and last amended by chapter 246, Statutes of Nevada 1967, at page 731, is hereby amended to read as follows:

      Section 4.  1.  The city council shall have the power to purchase, construct, reconstruct, condemn, install, alter, enlarge, extend, improve, better, equip, furnish, or otherwise acquire one or more of the following facilities, together with necessary components, appurtenances and sites therefor, to wit:

      (a) A sanitary sewer system, storm sewer system, municipal transportation system, flood control system or drainage system;

      (b) A city hall, police stations, jails, fire stations, courthouses, garages, municipal office buildings, maintenance shops, off-street parking garages, libraries, auditoriums, convention halls, recreation centers, transportation terminals, museums, fallout shelters or public buildings;

      (c) Parks, zoos, golf courses, swimming pools, skating rinks or recreational structures;

      (d) Airports, garbage disposal facilities, parking lots or public projects;

      (e) Streets, alleys, boulevards, highways, overpasses, underpasses, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, bridges or facilities for pedestrian or vehicular traffic;

      (f) Vehicles or equipment for any department of the city;

and to wholly or partially defray the cost thereof by the issuance of debentures, warrants, bonds, interim receipts, temporary certificates, temporary bonds or notes (hereafter sometimes collectively referred to in this section as “securities”), or to issue such securities for any other corporate purpose or purposes as may be determined by the council, subject, however, to constitutional limitations.


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

ê1969 Statutes of Nevada, Page 740 (Chapter 434, SB 483)ê

 

bonds or notes (hereafter sometimes collectively referred to in this section as “securities”), or to issue such securities for any other corporate purpose or purposes as may be determined by the council, subject, however, to constitutional limitations. Any power granted by Section 4 of Article XVIII may be exercised on one or more occasions and, if the council deems it appropriate, jointly with any other power granted by said section.

      2.  The council may pledge the full faith and credit of the city for the payment of any securities, the interest thereon, any prior redemption premium or premiums, or any other charges appertaining thereto. Such securities shall constitute the general obligations of the city payable from the proceeds of general (ad valorem) taxes (hereafter sometimes referred to in this section as “tax proceeds”) levied without limitation of rate or amount, except for constitutional limitations, and from any other revenues of the city other than tax proceeds available therefor (hereafter sometimes referred to in this section as “other revenues of the city”). Their payment may be additionally secured by a specific pledge of other revenues of the city, or part thereof (subject to any prior pledges), and the council may cause to be deposited such other revenues of the city so 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 with limitation [NRS 350.250,] the Local Government Securities Law as from time to time amended, 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.

      3.  As an alternative to the procedure prescribed by subsection 2 of Section 4 of Article XVIII, the council may directly pledge other revenues of the city, or any part thereof (subject to the prior payment of the operation and maintenance expenses, if any, incurred by the city or its instrumentalities in producing such revenues and subject to any other prior pledges) for the payment of any securities, the interest thereon, any prior redemption premium or premiums, or any other charges appertaining thereto. 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] 7 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.


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

ê1969 Statutes of Nevada, Page 741 (Chapter 434, SB 483)ê

 

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.

      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.

      7.  Securities issued pursuant to Section 4 of Article XVIII, shall be negotiable in form, fully negotiable within the meaning of and for all purposes of the Negotiable Instruments Law and the Uniform Commercial Code-Investment Securities, and payable to bearer, subject to any provisions for their registration for payment. 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.


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

ê1969 Statutes of Nevada, Page 742 (Chapter 434, SB 483)ê

 

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.

      8.  Securities issued pursuant to Section 4 of Article XVIII shall otherwise be issued in such manner, in such form, with such recitals, terms, covenants and conditions, and with such other details as may be determined by said ordinance and shall be printed at such place or places, within or without the State of Nevada, as the council may determine.

      9.  Any ordinance authorizing the issuance of securities pursuant to subsections 2 or 3 of Section 4 of Article XVIII or any other instrument appertaining thereto may contain covenants and other provisions (notwithstanding such covenants and provisions may limit the exercise of powers conferred hereby), in order to secure the payment of such securities, in agreement with the holders and owners of such securities, as to any one or more of the following:

      Sec. 6.  1.  On application of a party showing an agreement described in section 4 of this act, and the opposing party’s refusal to arbitrate, the court shall order the parties to proceed with arbitration, but if the opposing party denies the existence of the agreement to arbitrate, the court shall proceed summarily to the determination of the issue so raised and shall order arbitration if found for the moving party; otherwise, the application shall be denied.

      2.  On application, the court may stay an arbitration proceeding commenced or threatened on a showing that there is no agreement to arbitrate. Such an issue, when in substantial and bona fide dispute, shall be forthwith and summarily tried and the stay ordered if found for the moving party. If found for the opposing party, the court shall order the parties to proceed to arbitration.

      3.  If an issue referable to arbitration under the alleged agreement is involved in an action or proceeding pending in a court having jurisdiction to hear applications under subsection 1, the application shall be made therein. Otherwise and subject to section 5 of this act, the application may be made in any court of competent jurisdiction.

      4.  Any action or proceeding involving an issue subject to arbitration shall be stayed if an order for arbitration or an application therefor has been made under this section or, if the issue is severable, the stay may be with respect thereto only. When the application is made in such action or proceeding, the order for arbitration shall include such stay.

Appearance at the hearing waives such notice. The arbitrators may adjourn the hearing from time to time as necessary and, on request of a party and for good cause, or upon their own motion may postpone the hearing to a time not later than the date fixed by the agreement for making the award unless the parties consent to a later date.

      Sec. 12.  1.  The arbitrators may issue subpenas for the attendance of witnesses and for the production of books, records, documents and other evidence, and shall have the power to administer oaths. Subpenas so issued shall be served, and upon application to the court by a party or the arbitrators, enforced, in the manner provided by law for the service and enforcement of subpenas in a civil action.
