CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP/KXNT) — Gov. Brian Sandoval is calling Nevada lawmakers back to work Tuesday to finish five matters that failed to get done before the 2013 legislative session ended at midnight Monday.

In a proclamation issued four hours after the session ended, Sandoval ordered lawmakers to consider four measures, including a bill to authorize the Clark County Commission to raise the sales tax rate to fund more police officers.

Other bills involve implementing class size reduction policy, charter school accounts and economic development tax abatements.

Sandoval’s chief of staff says Gerald Gardner says another bill to provide $2 million to Teach for America to hire teachers for Clark County lacked support in the Assembly. So lawmakers will be asked to direct that money to the Millennium Scholarship Fund.
