CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The cost of holding a four-day special legislative session last month to lure carmaker Faraday Future to Nevada is more than one to clear tax breaks for Tesla. Nevada Legislative Counsel Bureau Director Rick Combs tells the Nevada Appeal that he expects the total to be $250,000. That's nearly twice as much as a two-day special session in 2014 for Tesla. Lawmakers approved $215 million in tax breaks for Faraday.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northern Nevada became the first church in the state earlier this month to allow an immigrant to stay there. ICE discourages agents from entering "sensitive" locations such as churches and schools.
