Gibbons vetoes bill relating to state employee work schedules

By ThisIsReno

The Governor’s Office just released a statement about Governor Jim Gibbons’ veto of Senate Bill 3.

“Although in theory certain aspects of Senate Bill 3 appear to be a good idea, in practice, Senate Bill 3 is unworkable and does not accomplish the flexibility that is needed with the least possible negative impact. Instead of creating flexibility for the state’s agencies to implement innovative work schedules that would save the State money, Senate Bill 3 will actually cost the State time, money and manpower to implement. Additionally, sections of Senate Bill 3 are redundant and unnecessary as current law already provides a solution. In sum, Senate Bill 3 creates confusion, uncertainty and inequity among employees.”
