SENATE DEMOCRATS ANNOUNCE PLANS FOR ENERGY SUBCOMMITTEE AT LEGISLATURE
LAS VEGAS - Today, Senate Democratic Leadership announced plans to form a Subcommittee on Energy if Democrats regain the majority in the Nevada State Senate for the next legislative session. Housed within the Senate Commerce, Labor, and Energy Committee, the subcommittee will be the starting point for all energy policy legislation before consideration by the full committee and the Senate as a whole.
“We recognize the depth and complexity of energy issues that will face the Legislature in 2017 which is why we are announcing that we will form a new subcommittee to help direct energy policy,” said Senate Democratic Leader Aaron D. Ford. “Energy policy is about more than just whether or not the lights come on. It’s about jobs, it’s about our environment, it’s about price stability for consumers, and it’s about whether Nevada can secure its long-term future as the country’s clean energy leader. ”
The 79th session of the Nevada Legislature will begin on February 6, 2017.
