Gibbons to sign proclamation Tuesday calling for special session

Sun Coverage

Gov. Jim Gibbons announced early this evening that he will sign the official proclamation on Tuesday next week calling for a special session of the Legislature to begin Feb. 23.

Gibbons already had announced the date of the session Monday during his State of the State address. Lawmakers will meet to debate a budget that has come up $881 million short.

The delay between his call for the session and his signing the proclamation also allows Gibbons, Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki and members of the Legislature to continue to accept campaign donations.

Nevada law bars collecting campaign funds from the day after the governor issues a proclamation for the special session until 15 days after the Legislature adjourns.
