A bill signed into law this week in Nevada means that the state’s governor will have more of a say in who the state’s wildlife director will be. Previously, the Nevada governor needed to select a wildlife director from among the candidates submitted by the state’s Wildlife Commission. The new law eliminates that restriction on the governor’s appointment.
Read more about the new law in this article in The Danbury (Ct.) News-Times (Why a Connecticut outlet ran this Associated Press story on Nevada when few other outlets did is beyond me.) It also had the news when the bill passed the Nevada legislature.
The Daily Sparks Tribune has some of the background of the dust-up between governor and director that lead to the bill.
