Article I, Section 10, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution, known as the Contract Clause, imposes certain prohibitions on the states. These prohibitions are meant to protect individuals from intrusion by state governments and to keep the states from intruding on the enumerated powers of the U.S. federal government.

You must first learn the meaning of the word STATES!! They have no jurisdiction unless you VOLUNTEER!! the people are being fooled!!

Pure communism. This is why you move your business to China if you can. Never again will i have employees or a office in America because of this corruption and communism

Only businesses they should be going after: big name grocery stores (Smith's, Albertsons), Walmart, Lowe's, home depot, Walgreens, CVS, And gas stations.

Why? Starmc26? In fact, WHY do we even have to wear a mask, when in reality, its all about control? Hmmm? I say NO MASK period. I don't like my rights being taken away, but YOU apparently DO.

You will obey or we will fine you out of business! Unlawful directives from Sissylak are unlawful. You ain't our daddy.

It is lawful, the state constitution allows the governor to restrict businesses in times of crisis including disease. He's not even the first Nevada governor to do require masks. These public health issues were settled by the supreme court over 100 years ago.

NEVERFORGET

The county and state need money so go after businesses who are already struggling. Great job SISOLAK. Everyone can see what your really doing here to cover you failed COVID-19 leadership. You failed SISOLAK.
