Time of meeting:
The meeting started at 1:00pm and ended at 3:15pm.
Allen Biaggi gave an update of AB 419 and asked if the committee felt the legislation should move forward. Mr. Biaggi said Senator Titus was ready to support it and needed supporters to voice their support through their lobbyist. Susan Selby and Dennis Ransel, on behalf of Clark County, and Andy Goodrich, on behalf of Washoe County, voiced their support for the bill and said they would get together with their lobbyist.
Lloyd Nelson asked what
language changes there would be other than what was originally submitted. Mr.
Biaggi responded the language would remain relatively the same.
Andy Goodrich asked if the “agriculture lab” and “DMV labs”
were in the CIP project. Mr. Biaggi said that the “DMV lab” was not
currently in the CIP and if it was added, there would not be funds to build it;
also, the “agriculture lab” is in the CIP process and cannot proceed without
the $2.00 increase.
Lloyd Nelson was asked to be the central point of contact for the
status of this bill. Mr. Nelson agreed.

mentioned misspelling he spotted. Yer Her said she would make the changes. Mr.
Ransel motioned to approve the minutes pending the changes in spelling; Dianne
Stortz-Lintz seconded the motion. No one objected.

Grant request priority
Mr. Ransel mentioned that the grant request were presented in no order to priority and if there is money for the excess reserve fund, he wanted to know which request would be funded or if he could send us a priority list for his county’s grant requests. Mrs. Stortz-Lintz responded that all grant requests had been approved by the committee, so when budget closes and if there is money to fund the excess grant request, the counties can decide which ones they want to fund.
Grant application process
Mr. Ransel wanted to know what the grant application process was and asked to have a guideline of the process. Mr. Ransel said due to new personnel that there had been confusion with deadlines and misunderstandings regarding what needs to come back to DMV. An outline prepared by Mr. Ransel was handed out. Mr. Nelson added to the outline what happens when the grant request arrives at DMV before going back to the counties for contract signatures and timelines for those events.
Steven Grabski asked what was needed to get the Department of Agriculture on the IM committee. Mr. Nelson responded that it could be scheduled to be discussed at the next meeting.
Mrs. Stortz-Lintz suggested combining the Heavy Duty Diesel (HDD) subcommittee and IM committee so the topics are not redundant and it would save time since topics from the HDD meeting are usually discussed again at the IM meeting. Ms. Selby suggested having the HDD meeting and IM meeting on the same day, back to back. Mrs. Stortz-Lintz responded that it is currently done that way and re-stated her suggestion.
AB 36 update
Daryl Capurro gave an update about the status of AB 36. Mr. Capurro said that supporters needed to show their support. IM members said they would talk to their superiors of the status.
The meeting adjourned.
