Not being from Nevada, I could be way off on my understanding of how things were done before this bill become law, the way I understand it was the sheriffs association in Nevada had great influence on the reciprocity agreements with other states. It appears this bill (if passed into law) places sole control in the hands of the Nevada Department of Public Safety.http://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/78th2015/Bills/Amendments/A_SB175_136.pdf

Yup it was before the committee yesterday morning and all looked good with it as far as testimony goes. Nobody seemed concerned about CC blue card and in fact the CC Sheriff is for doing away with it. So is the Sheriff and Chiefs association and the NHP. The big stumbling block with the Democrats as I saw it was with the part that holds City and County governments liable to litigation for not following State preemption.SB-175 passed the Senate and is currently in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.
Its still a good bill - a change for the good.Thanks varminter22 - so is it a change for the good or simply substituting one cluster bleep for another ?
NV does not have 'reciprocity.' NV has 'recognition.'Not being from Nevada, I could be way off on my understanding of how things were done before this bill become law, the way I understand it was the sheriffs association in Nevada had great influence on the reciprocity agreements with other states.

I'm I correct in my understanding? Thanks for any input.
AFAIK, the other state does not 'reciprocate.'Ugh. Free in AZ was right as well, While Nevada may not have a reciprocity program set up, the fact is if Nevada "recognizes" a state and the state reciprocates... Reciprocity exists. It is just not initiated by Nevada intentionally. It is still in many cases initiated solely by recognition, depending on the other states Rec. agreement.
SB-175 was amended. It no longer states Nevada would honor all other states' permits.We have "reciprocity" with many states in the practical sense, not in the legal agreement sense. Indeed, we may soon eliminate much of the demand for a UT permit if Nevada's bill becomes law that recognizes all states' permits. More states will then recognize ours.
As amended: Senate Final Passage (1st Reprint) Mar 23, 2015: Yea 14, Nay 5, Excused 2, Not Voting 0, Absent 060 Existing law requires the Department to annually prepare a list of states which
61 it determines are substantially similar to or more stringent than this State for
62 purposes of issuing a permit to carry a concealed firearm. (NRS 202.3689) Section
63 4.5 of this bill instead requires the Department to determine whether each state
64 requires a person to complete any training, class or program for purposes of
65 preparing the list.
