On Monday the Senate Judiciary Committee will take up SB180, a bill that would allow enhanced penalties for crimes committed because of a victim’s actual or perceived gender identity or expression.

Nevada Supreme Court Chief Justice Michael Douglas delivers a speech to lawmakers Monday night on the state of the judiciary.

Another bill to outlaw texting and driving will be considered Tuesday. On Wednesday, legislative committees will continue work on K-12 budgets and school reforms, including a bill that would increase probationary periods for teachers and administrators.
