Encyclopedia > Nevada Assembly

The Nevada Assembly is the lower house of the Nevada Legislature. It consists of 42 members elected to two-year terms, twice the number of members in the Nevada Senate. The Assembly, like the Senate, is composed of "citizen legislators", receiving a relatively small per diem fee for the first 60 days of a given session. This tends to self-select legislators to those with flexible jobs and/or large outside incomes, such as doctors and lawyers. The Assembly, again like the Senate, meets however long is necessary for the completion of all its business, up to a maximum of 120 days, beginning the first Monday in February of every odd-numbered year. While this is designed to limit the amount of time a legislator is away from their first job, in recent years 120 days has not been enough to complete legislative business, and after the last four regular sessions, special sessions have been called to finish up legislative business.

The Assembly leadership for the 2005 session included Speaker of the House Richard Perkins (D-Henderson), Speaker Pro Tempore Chris Giunchigliani (D-Las Vegas), Majority Leader Barbara Buckley (D-Las Vegas), and Minority Leader Lynn Hettrick (R-Carson City). 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
