CARSON CITY (AP) -- Domestic violence victims would have a way to break housing leases to escape their abusers under a bill amended and approved by a Senate committee.

The bill sponsored by Assemblywoman Lucy Flores of Las Vegas establishes notice requirements and steps victims must take to terminate leases.

Among them are presenting the landlord with a police report, restraining order or affidavit from a third party affirming the tenant's account.

Amendments approved Friday clarify who qualifies as a third-party.

Another amendment requires that alleged abusers be identified.

The bill now goes to the Senate floor.
