Information Regarding AB 474 and AB 239

During its 2017 session, the Nevada Legislature approved and Gov. Brian Sandoval subsequently signed into law Assembly Bill 474. As part of the bill, the Board of Health will be adopting regulations requiring the reporting of drug overdoses by physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and veterinarians to the State’s Chief Medical Officer. Before holding a workshop on the proposed regulations, the Division of Public and Behavioral Health is required to solicit input from small businesses (150 employees or fewer) on the anticipated costs and benefits to the proposed regulation. For purposes of this survey, anyone may submit comments at the upcoming public workshop.

Responses to the AB 474 small-business impact survey must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. on Jan. 24, 2018. The survey can be accessed and completed online at
