Political Action in Nevada
The Nevada Legislature meets every other year, in odd numbered years. Lawmakers in the Silver State will meet for their mandated regular session limit of 120 days starting on Monday, February 6, 2017.
In the period between each session, known as the Legislative “Interim,” Tahoe Chamber and its Government Affairs Committee actively engage with the Nevada Legislature’s Committee for the Review and Oversight of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and the Marlette Lake Water System (NRS 218E.555). The final meeting of the 2016 Interim Committee and its consideration of “bill draft requests” submitted by a number of Tahoe agencies and organizations was delayed by the Special Legislative Session called by Governor Sandoval during the week that ended Friday, October 14.
As with the legislature in California, the role of the Tahoe Chamber Government Affairs Committee is to engage with Nevada legislative proposals and to take actions, as the Committee deems appropriate in support or opposition. Committee actions may involve recommendations made to the Chamber Board of Directors.
