Nevada POLST Legislation

The POLST form was originally introduced in the 2013 Nevada Legislative session as AB344, sponsored by Assemblyman David Bobzien.

The most recent legislative action regarding Nevada POLST was the passage of AB199 with a single “nea” vote. This legislation was sponsored by Assemblywoman Melissa Woodbury, Senator Joseph Hardy, MD and Assemblywoman Robin Titus, MD. The bill was signed into law by Governor Sandoval on May 24, 2017.
