NEVADA – ASUN Passed Feminine Hygiene Pilot Program Legislation

In November, about 465,311 Nevada residents voted to amend the Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955 to exempt tax on the sale and storage of feminine hygiene products. Nevada is the 10th state to eliminate this tax.

The Associated Students of the University of Nevada passed legislation to begin a pilot program providing free feminine hygiene products for students in the Joe Crowley Student Union. ASUN decided not to begin the pilot program with a third party and instead worked with the JCSU and the Department of Facilities to reduce cost.
