CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has signed a wide-ranging collective bargaining overhaul bill that received support from both businesses and unions.

Sandoval signed SB241 into law on Monday.

The measure prohibits school administrators who make more than $120,000 a year from joining a collective bargaining unit, and makes it easier for superintendents to fire or transfer school principals during their first few years of employment.

The bill requires administrators who aren’t principals but are in unions to reapply for their jobs every five years.

It also doubles the number of negotiation sessions required between a teacher’s union and employer before calling in an independent arbitrator to reach an agreement.

Unions including the Nevada State Education Association supported the measure and said it was reasonable. The bill is effective immediately.
