2017 Nevada State Legislature

February 8, 2017

The 79th (2017) Regular Session of the Nevada Legislature is now in session. It began on Monday, February 6 and will end on June 5. The Nevada Legislature meets every other year in the state capital of Carson City for 120 consecutive days. This time frame is set by the Nevada constitution. Otherwise, special sessions can be called by the governor or by two-thirds of the legislature.

In the 2016 election, both Senate and Assembly flipped from majority Republican to majority Democrat. The governor and all other state constitutional officers are Republicans elected for four years in the 2014 election. It will be interesting to see how well this group plays together.
