CARSON CITY— Ahead of the Attorney General Office budget hearing scheduled for Wednesday, March 8th, Assemblywoman Maggie Carlton and Senator Joyce Woodhouse, co-chairs of the Joint Senate Finance and Assembly Ways & Means Committee, formally invited Attorney General Laxalt to attend his office’s budget hearing:
“Traditionally, constitutional officers appear in person to present their office’s budget to the legislature’s joint appropriations committee meetings out of respect for the Legislature’s constitutional oversight responsibilities. We are pleased that the Treasurer, Controller, and Secretary of State have all appeared before the joint committee this session to explain and answer questions regarding their proposed budgets. We are hopeful that Attorney General Laxalt can find the time to do the same.”
Nevada’s State Treasurer, Controller, and Secretary of State have all presented their budgets to the Joint Committee on Ways and Means this session. Despite having numerous bills sponsored by his office come up for hearing, Attorney General Laxalt has not appeared before any legislative committee so far during the 2017 Legislative Session.
