Case Synopsis

The Nevada Division of Insurance’s (the Division) enabling statutes provide it with authority to promulgate regulations protecting against unfair use of consumer credit information. Its new regulation, R087-20, imposes only limitations and not a blanket ban on the use of consumer credit information and does not interfere with existing statutory provisions. The Legislature has provided adequate interpretation and guidance standards to the Division to constitute a constitutional delegation of authority such that the Division’s approved promulgation of R087-20 does not mean its enabling statutes are unconstitutional delegations of authority.
