The author comments on the 75th Nevada legislative session in 2009. She says there is no movement toward concrete reform to the Public Employees Retirement and Benefits Systems. She notes that no bills have been introduced that will address the greatest risk to taxpayers the growing unfunded liability continues to create. As a result of an initiative that amended the Nevada Constitution, minimum wage will increase effective July 1, 2009. The author says that increase will affect the payment of overtime. She also discusses that Employee Free Choice Act.
