Legislature Convening Amid Controversies

(Carson City, NV) — The Nevada Legislature begins its new session today, amid a pair of controversies over two of its members.

A bipartisan committee will decide whether to seat Assemblyman Steven Brooks, who was arrested on charges he threatened Speaker Maryland Kirpatrick.

Las Vegas Assemblyman Andrew Martin is expected to be seated by fellow Democrats today. Despite winning his southwest valley seat by more than 1300 votes, a judge ruled Martin did not live in the district. No challenge was filed to unseat him.
