Nevada to Convene Special Session
A special session announced by Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak begins November 12 to vote on new congressional maps.
Nevada is a swing state with 38% of voters not identifying with the Democratic or Republican party, raising the political importance of the special session.
Currently, Democrats control the Legislature and the Governor’s Office, allowing for the creation of maps that lean in their favor.
The Democratic maps look to wrestle control of downtown Reno from the Republicans and to sure-up control of two hotly contested districts in Washoe County.
This does affect lobbyist reporting.
A lobbyist activity report will be due December 10, covering the month of November, and a termination and final report for the special session will be due 30 days after the close of the special session.
