Notice of Workshop


The State of Nevada, Department of Business and Industry, Director’s Office (“Department”) is proposing the adoption of regulations to the Nevada Administrative Code (“NAC”). The proposed regulations are required as a result of the passage of Senate Bill 161 (S.B. 161) during the 80th  Session of the Nevada Legislature adjourned sine die on June 3, 2019.  Existing provisions of chapters 645A, 645B, 645F and 645G of NRS, titles 55 and 56 of NRS and the various regulations adopted pursuant to those statutes impose licensing and other regulatory requirements on the provision of certain financial products and services, ranging from secured and unsecured lending to banking and debt counseling. This bill generally provides for the establishment and administration of a program by the Director of the Department, in consultation with  the Commissioner of the Financial Institutions Division and the Commissioner of the Mortgage Lending Division, under which persons offering or providing such a product or service in a technically innovative way may seek a temporary exemption from some or all of the statutory and regulatory provisions that otherwise apply to the product or service.  This workshop will be conducted subject to the Open Meeting Law (NRS 241.020) and the purpose is to solicit comments from interested persons on the proposed regulations to be held at the following locations through simultaneous videoconference:
