CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada Assembly committee has passed a measure that urges Congress to turn over millions of acres of federally managed land within the state's borders.

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada lawmakers are reviewing a bill that would make it more difficult for schools to punish students for playing with toy guns.
