The Lights Are Off For Now

The lights in the Capitol will be off on Monday New Year’s Day because the Capitol will be closed. The lights in the George W. Norris Legislative Chamber are off now. But Wednesday January 3 they will come back on as the second session of the 105th Legislature convenes at 10:00 a.m. For information about the Legislature please go to their website. There you will find the Legislative Calendar, ways to find and contact your Senator, bills introduced, committee hearing schedules, and everything else you will need to be an informed citizen and participant in your government.
