Senate Committees

The Commerce and Labor Committee is a standing committee of the Nevada State Assembly. Per Assembly Rule 40, the committee is made up of 15 members.[1]

Per Assembly Rule 41, standing committees of the Nevada State Assembly are appointed biennially by the Assembly Speaker.[2] The Speaker makes the appointments following the organization of the Assembly and the adoption of standing rules, which informs the Senate and Governor of Nevada that the chamber is ready to conduct business. Generally, minority membership is meant to be proportionate to that in the Assembly at-large, and is determined by minority caucuses and agreed to by the Speaker.[3] The Speaker may appoint alternate members for an appropriate length in the event of incapacitation.[4]
