Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson announced on Friday which lawmakers will be serving on which committees during the 2019 legislative session.
Frierson will announce additional committee assignments once vacancies in Assembly Districts 10, 11 and 36 are filled in the coming weeks. Republican Dennis Hof won the election in Assembly District 36 despite his death, Assemblywoman Olivia Diaz resigned her Assembly District 11 seat on Monday to run for Las Vegas City Council, and Assemblyman Chris Books stepped down from his District 10 seat to join the Senate on Tuesday.
The Clark, Nye and Lincoln county commissions are expected to appoint utility water manager Gregory Hafen to the District 36 seat on Friday.
Senate Majority Leader Kelvin Atkinson announced the Senate committee assignments earlier this week.
