Loan from Reno Auxiliary Enterprises 100,000
Payment from NSU Auxiliary Enterprises 19,000

three categories which he suggested might be selected for
naming NSU Dormitories:

are more or less native to Southern Nevada; or
The use of names of Nevada towns.
Mr. Ronzone favored the use of names of Nevada mining towns.
Motion by Mr. Magee, seconded by Mr. Grant, carried without
dissent that the names of Nevada towns be used for NSU
Specific suggestions for the name of the present Dormitory
at NSU will be made at the May meeting of the Board.

policy was distributed to the Board for review prior to

will be available for consideration by the Board at that
11. Legislative Program Report (as of April 5, 1967)
Mr. Hug presented the following report on the status of
legislation of interest to the University:
1. AB 6. This bill makes a special appropriation to the
University for Agricultural research and demonstration
in Pahrump Valley. The first version called for an ap-
propriation of $81,537 for the biennium. It was amend-
ed in Ways and Means Committee to provide an appropria-
tion of $52,500 for the biennium. The bill is now in
Senate Finance Committee.
2. AB 75. This bill puts Desert Research Institute under
the State Purchasing Act and prohibits the payment of
moving expenses for DRI employees. The bill is still
in the Assembly Education Committee and is considered
3. AB 94. This bill confers the right of eminent domain
upon the Board of Regents. Bill is in Assembly
Judiciary Committee and is considered dead.
4. AB 278. This bill appropriates $500,000 to the Uni-
versity for library books for the biennium. The bill
is in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee. Please
see discussion below concerning General Fund appro-
5. AB 290. Removes the indenture requirement in WICHE
contracts. This bill came out of Senate Education
Committee with a "do pass" but met with considerable
opposition on the floor and is presently on the
Secretary's desk. You probably have more accurate
information on this bill than I do, but my assumption
is that it will not pass.
6. AB 430. Reduces the vesting right of 15 years to 10
years in the Public Employees Retirement plan. This
bill is still in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee
where the reaction appears favorable.
7. AB 463. Authorizes the Board of Regents to acquire
certain specified land by condemnation. This bill came
out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee with a do pass
on a split vote. On March 22 it passed the second
reading in the Assembly and then on March 23 was placed
on the Chief Clerk's desk. The reason given was that
Assemblyman Marvin White of Clark County believed the
property description was incorrect. Mr. Whalen, Plant
Engineer, is working with the State Highway Department
on the description. One minor error is present but
it has given the opponents of this bill sufficient
reason to hold it. I am pessimistic about getting
8. AB 484. Provides for the establishment of Community
Colleges. This bill is in Ways and Means and I am not
aware of any substantial support for it.
9. AB 489. Would change the name of Nevada Southern Uni-
versity to Nevada State University. This bill is in
Committee on Education in the Assembly and it appears
to be dead.
10. SB 175. Requires persons not engaged in lawful busi-
ness to leaving building and grounds of public agen-
cies upon the request of a peace officer if the build-
ing is regularly closed to the public at that time.
This bill has a do pass in the Assembly and is present-
ly on the Chief Clerk's desk.
11. SB 194. Clarifies the residence status of a University
student who marries. This bill came out of Assembly
Education Committee with a do pass and was approved by
the Assembly; however, it was then reconsidered and
placed on the Chief Clerk's desk. The issue then be-
came sufficiently confused due to the variety of opin-
ions of different Legislators due to "clarifying resi-
dent status" and the bill will probably die where it
12. The following Assembly bills have all been passed by
the Legislature and are now law.
A. AB 61. Authorizes the University to do much of its
B. AB 76. Requires the University to inventory all
C. AB 77. Modifies the State's waiver of sovereign
immunity on behalf of the University and changes

School in Northern Nevada.
E. AJR 16. Approves of the Nevada Advisory Committee
for Higher Education Planning.
F. SB 216. Provides industrial insurance coverage of
athletes at the University. This bill has cleared
both Houses and presumably will be approved by the
by Governor. It provides that members of the ath-
letic teams of the University, while engaged in
organized practice or active competition for any
activity related thereto, shall be deemed for pur-
poses of NIC coverage to be employees of the Uni-
versity of Nevada at a wage of $50 a month and in
the event of injury they are entitled to Workmen's
Compensation benefits. The Act also states that
this legislation is for the purpose of extending
insurance coverage only and is in no way intended
to affect the amateur status of the members or
imply that any such member is receiving a wage for
participation. This legislation has not received
the endorsement of the Board of Regents.
13. SB 220. Makes an appropriation of $30,000 to the
University for a football team at NSU. This bill is
still in Finance Committee and seems to enjoy very
14. SB 322. Increases the contribution rate to public
employees retirement fund to 6% of gross salary by both
the employer and employee. This bill has passed and
been signed by the Governor. We estimate that for our
present employees the additional cost next year will
be approximately $22,000.
15. SB 373. Empowers the Board of Regents to purchase land
on deferred payments. This bill has cleared the Senate
and is in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee. It
provides that the Board may purchase real property for
cash or by making a cash down payment and executing or
assuming an obligation to pay the remainder of the
price in deferred installments. It further provides
that such obligations may be secured by a mortgage or
deed of trust of the real property acquired, but shall
not constitute an obligation of the State. This bill
has not received endorsement of the Board of Regents.
16. SB 475. Authorizes the formation of the NSU Land
Foundation. This bill has been scheduled for a hearing
at 9:00 A.M., April 10, 1967 before the Senate Finance

University funds. This bill is in the Assembly Ways

This resolution is in the Senate Finance Committee.
22. SB 493. Requires comprehensive planning for capital

sity. Its format requires two 5-year plans: July,
1967 through June, 1972 and July, 1974 through June,
1979. In Senate Finance Committee.
23. SJR 34. "Encourages" the Board of Regents to study the
