CARSON CITY (AP) — Less than two hours after he was sworn into office, Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has created a task force to combat sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace.

Sisolak told reporters in his office Monday that his first official action is the signing of an executive order to create the task force chaired by the new Attorney General Aaron Ford.

He says he wants to send a clear message that sexual harassment and discrimination has no place in Nevada.

Sisolak says the panel will make recommendations to ensure people feel comfortable and safe at work.
