CARSON CITY (LVPR) — CARSON CITY - Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak will hold a virtual bill signing ceremony on Friday, February 12, 2021 at 9:15 a.m. to sign Assembly Bill 106, which provides an additional $50 million for small businesses through the Pandemic Emergency Technical Support (PETS) Grant Program.

The Governor will be joined by State officials and members of the Nevada Legislature for the ceremony.

The piece of legislation, which was a priority in Gov. Sisolak’s 2021 State of the State address, was passed unanimously by the Nevada Legislature this week, the second week of the 81st Legislative Session.

The additional funding in the grant program brings the total expenditure to more than $100 million, making it the largest small business assistance program in Nevada history.

The bill signing will be streamed on the Governor’s YouTube page.

Press wishing to join the Zoom to ask questions after the bill signing must RSVP to press@gov.nv.gov by 8 a.m.
