With much discussion about possible Brooks expulsion, Clark County commissioners prepare for appointment
Clark County Commissioners have asked for a special addendum to their agenda next week "regarding a possible process for appointing a qualified state legislator," a clear reference to a possible vacancy if Assemblyman Steven Brooks resigns or is expelled. The rationale explained in the backup -- attached here -- is that Commissioner Mary Beth Scow asked for the item in December -- before the Brooks affair -- to examine the appointment process. I understand this came in the wake of the quick...
The state's Occupational Safety and Health Administration raised concerns last week about "an unstable and dangerous employee" in the Legislative Building, which prompted the director of the Legislative Counsel Bureau to respond today to assure inspectors precautions have been taken because of Assemblyman Steven Brooks' troubles. The exchange of letters (both attached here) a week apart comes against a backdrop of renewed concerns about Brooks entering the building. LCB Director Rick Combs...
UPDATE: I have posted here the letter that was delivered to Brooks by legislative police. A few hours after he was banned from the Legislative Building, Assemblyman Steven Brooks arrived back in Northern Nevada. Brooks was met at the Reno airport late Monday evening by legislative police, who served him with a letter penned by Assembly Majority Leader William Horne informing him he is not to enter the Legislative Building. I talked to Horne early this morning, and he told me while there is no...
The rules for that committee the majority leader is chairing give him broad powers to probe Steven Brooks. He already has employed them to ban Brooks from the Legislative Building. How can he do that? Because the rules say he can.... Waive or suspend any provision of these rules, as deemed necessary by the Chair, or adopt any additional rules or procedures, as deemed necessary by the Chair, to ensure that hearings are conducted in a fair, orderly and efficient manner. 3. The Chair may, if...
I wonder if Assemblyman Steven Brooks will testify at the first hearing looking into his behavior. The first meeting is just to set the rules. But what ordinarily might be boring could be crucial here because everything will be precedent-setting and designed to offer Brooks due process and protect the Legislature from liability. Here's the agenda: ASSEMBLY AGENDA Select Committee on the Assembly Day Monday Date February 11, 2013 Time 6 p.m. Room 4100 Room 4100 of the Legislative...
ANOTHER UPDATE NOW POSTED: The Metro police report is attached here. It is somethi9ng else. UPDATE FROM METRO: This morning at approximately 12:18 a.m. LVMPD Patrol Officers responded to the 6000 block of Tuttle River Avenue in Northwest Las Vegas (UPDATE: The Metro release had the address wrong: It's 6007 Turtle River Avenue in northeast LV) to investigate reports of a domestic battery. Arriving officers encountered a male suspect, later identified as Nevada State Assemblyman Steven John...
