SB 22 amended NRS 369.190; Effective October 1, 2015 any applicant for the various liquor licenses as found in NRS 369.180, whose business will be located within the boundaries of the following incorporated cities: Boulder City, Caliente, Carlin, Carson City, Elko, Ely, Fallon, Fernley, Henderson, Las Vegas, Lovelock, Mesquite, North Las Vegas, Reno, Sparks Wells, West Wendover, Winnemucca and Yerington; must be made to the governing body of that city for their review, approval or disapproval. For those applicants whose business is not located within the boundaries of an incorporated city, those licenses must be made to the board of county commissioners of the county in which the business will be located for their review, approval or disapproval. If the governing body of a city or county commissioner approves the application, the governing board of that city or the board of county commissioners, must forward the signed and approved application to the Department of Taxation.
