On Saturday, the Nevada Assembly voted to pass two noteworthy bills up for discussion in the Senate. Assembly Bill 3 (AB3) and Assembly Bill 4 (AB4).

AB3 seeks to ban law enforcement from using chokeholds and also requires another police officer to intervene if he or she feels another office is using unjust force, and AB4, which expands access to mail-in voting in the November General Election amid the coronavirus pandemic.
