Assembly Democrats say session goes on whether Brooks is there or not

An odd statement, to say the least, one that essentially states the obvious:


Our plan for the opening day of the 77th Legislative Session is to conduct business as usual with the traditional opening ceremonies and referral of pre-filed bills to committees.


The full body of the Assembly will begin regular activities on day one with the members in attendance.


Steven Brooks is a member of the Nevada Assembly. While the situation with regards to him is fluid and we will respect his needs for privacy and care, the work of the Assembly will go on whether or not he is able to join us at the start of the session.


Opening day is one of great ceremony, and we intend to set an immediate tone of hard work and productivity. We will also ensure that all legislators, staff, and honored guests in the building feel safe while the State's business is accomplished.
