Although the effective date of Nevada's enacting legislation establishing a beverage service training program was June 17, 2005 (see 2005 Nev. Stat. 497), by its terms the program will not be fully implemented and enforceable until July 1, 2007 (with a 30-day grace period). The applicability of Nevada's "alcoholic beverage awareness program" to on-sale retailers is limited to establishments located in a jurisdiction that: (a) is located in a county whose population is 100,000 or more; or (b) is located in a county whose population is less than 100,000, if the governing body of the jurisdiction has, by the affirmative vote of a majority of its members, agreed to be bound by the provisions of section 9 of the act. In addition, prior to July 1, 2011, the applicability to off-sale retailers was limited to establishments in counties whose populations were 400,000 or more. Beginning July 1, 2011 this applicability is limited to off-sale retail establishments in counties whose populations are 700,000 or more.
