Rental Car Price Increase Becomes Law in Nevada

Rental car customers in Nevada will now pay an extra $1 or more per day in charges, reports the Las Vegas Sun.

The Nevada state assembly and senate overrode the governor’s veto of a senate bill that called for the increase.

Rental car customers in the state will pay the extra charge starting July 1.

Gov. Jim Gibbons vetoed Senate Bill 234 because of the extra charge for rental car customers. A spokesman for the state’s rental car agencies said it will amount to an increase of about $1.25 a day.

Car rental agencies now collect a 10-percent tax but send 6 percent to the state. The state is now taking the full 10 percent. But it is permitting the leasing agencies to charge more to offset their costs. Senate Bill 234 requires the leasing agencies to clearly disclose the amount of additional charges to the customer.

The Senate overrode the veto of the governor by a 21-0 vote. So SB234 now becomes law.
