CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada senators have passed a bill that would restrict some school administrators from unionizing.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson is sponsoring SB241, which passed in a 15-4 vote on Monday. It now heads to the Assembly.

The bill bars administrators who make more than $120,000 a year from collective bargaining. It also requires state arbitrators to conduct a hearing on a labor dispute more quickly, and largely prevents raises from taking effect if a union contract expires and a new one is not in place.

Roberson has said collective bargaining is meant to protect the rights of laborers and not management.
