Press Accreditation

NEVADA LEGISLATURE PRESS ACCREDITATION REQUEST PROCEDURE: Persons wishing to use press space within the Assembly and Senate Chambers and access press resources provided by the Legislative Counsel Bureau must be accredited by both houses of the Nevada Legislature and must obtain a press badge issued by the Legislative Counsel Bureau. NOTE: Press may be restricted from entering certain areas if they are not wearing their badges.

Badges are issued on a temporary basis and you are not considered accredited until your name has been sent to each House and read into the record. If proper identification is not presented, the Nevada Press Association or Nevada Broadcasters Association will be contacted and will make the decision for the accreditation process. If you are not approved, you will be notified and must return your press badge.

BADGE PHOTOS HOURS:    7:30-11:00 a.m. and 1:30-3:30 p.m.

BADGE PICK UP:   Go to Room 1140 (ask for Sylvia Wiese or Elaine Coburn, Director's Office)
