CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Gov. Brian Sandoval got back to business just minutes after being sworn in to his second term.

The Republican governor signed one executive order after his inauguration Monday that creates a permanent home for artifacts celebrating Nevada’s 150th birthday. He signed another one creating an education advisory board made up of businesspeople.

The first order designated the historic Senate chamber in the Capitol building as Battle Born Hall. It will hold memorabilia from the sesquicentennial celebration after the exhibit spends time in Las Vegas.

The advisory board is named the Governor’s Business Roundtable on Education Policy. It will include up to 13 representatives from major industries in Nevada, and will advise the governor on how to prepare students to enter the state’s changing workforce.
