Reports to the Legislature Database
Search our database of reports required to be submitted to the Legislature pursuant to the Nevada Revised Statutes or Statutes of Nevada (1985-current)
The information in this database was compiled using the index to the Nevada Revised Statutes, as well as the Index and Tables to Bills and Resolutions and the index of the Statutes of Nevada back through 1985. While we have cataloged several reports from before 1985, we have only gone through the Index and Tables to Bills and Resolutions and the index of the Statutes of Nevada back through 1985 because ealier indices are less complete. As we find older or missed reports, they are cataloged and entered in this database. We are only cataloging reports that are required, by Nevada Revised Statutes or Statutes of Nevada, to be submitted to the Legislature or one of its entities; reports that are required to go only to Executive or Judicial Branch agencies are not included here.
Any combination of fields will work - use as many or as few as you need. The symbols & / ! represent Boolean AND, OR, NOT and may be used between words or phrases. Include a space before and after the symbol. For example, you could search for government and politics / taxation in the Subject field and you would get results that had one or the other subject assigned to it. If you search for government and politics & taxation in the same field, you will get results that have both of those subjects. Likewise, if you search for government and politics ! taxation in the same field, you will get results that have the government and politics subject, but not taxation.
Use an asterisk (*) at the end of a word to search for all possible word endings. For example, you could search for legislat* and you would get results containing all words beginning with legislat (legislature, legislative, legislator, etc.).
Search tips and information for specific fields can be found be clicking on the name of the search field or the icon next to the name.
Searches the following fields: Subject, Source, Former Source, Subsource, Receiver, Former Receiver, Description, Former Description, Miscellaneous, Transmit (who report is transmitted to), Sunset, Repeal, Bill Number, NRS, Former NRS, Other Holdings, and Chapter Number (Statutes of Nevada).
The Nevada Revised Statutes citation of a report (e.g., 422A.525). If you are uncertain about the exact citation, you may enter the chapter number followed by an asterisk (e.g., 422A*); this will show you any reports required in Chapter 422A of the NRS. You do not need to enter 'NRS' before any citations.
Bills are entered in the database in abbreviated form: A.B. for Assembly Bill, S.B. for Senate Bill, etc. You may either enter the full bill number (e.g., A.B. 259) or just a number (e.g., 259). Entering only a number may return you several bill types of the same number, as well as bills with section numbers corresponding to the number entered.
The Nevada Legislature meets in regular session biennially during odd-numbered years. There have been some special sessions in both odd- and even-numbered years, so you may see some of these in the results.
The entity or entities required to submit the report. If you are unsure about the name of a government agency, you may use the Options button to find the name we use in the database.
This database only tracks reports required to be submitted to the Legislature or any of its entities (e.g., Legislative Commission, Interim Finance Committee, division of the Legislative Counsel Bureau, etc.). Reports required only to go to Executive or Judicial Branch entities are not included.

This is not the same as the chapter of the Nevada Revised Statutes. The chapters of the NRS are arranged by subject. The chapters of Statutes of Nevada correspond to the order in which bills were passed. So, Chapter 1 of a volume of Statutes of Nevada is the bill that was passed first in that session.
The Research Library has cataloged the reports by broad subject areas. To see what these are, click on the "Options" button. Reports are assigned at least one subject, and some are given two subjects.
Search for a specific date by entering it (e.g., July 1, 2014) or you may enter a range of years. You can use a colon (:) in this field to select a range of years. For example, entering 2001:2003 will return results from 2001 through 2003. Not all reports have exact due dates; some are contingent upon something else happening to trigger a report, or are due some time after a project is completed, and others simply do not have a due date specified. The display form for dates is European style: Year/Month/Day.
