Our Commitment to Accessibility
As “the people’s branch of government,” the Nevada Legislature is committed to ensuring that all people, regardless of ability, have access to the legislative process and can fully participate in it, whether they wish to do so in person or online. As part of this commitment, we continually work to maintain and improve access to the buildings where citizens, legislators, and staff carry out the legislative process, as well as ensure that our website and its content are accessible for all users.
We will make reasonable accommodations for anyone who wants to access our buildings, website, or content. Feedback about how well your expectations and needs are being met are welcome and appreciated. For website feedback, you can use our
feedback form (also linked at the top of the page) or contact the Administrative Division at

Standards We Are Holding Ourselves To
For both existing pages and new development, we are striving to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 at the AA level. We are following industry standards and best practices for web development in order to work towards these guidelines, which can be summarized as follows:
- Provide text alternatives for any non-text content so that it can be changed into other forms people need, such as large print, braille, speech, symbols or simpler language.
- Provide alternatives for time-based media.
- Create content that can be presented in different ways (for example simpler layout) without losing information or structure.
- Make it easier for users to see and hear content including separating foreground from background.
- Make all functionality available from a keyboard.
- Provide users enough time to read and use content.
- Do not design content in a way that is known to cause seizures.
- Provide ways to help users navigate, find content, and determine where they are.
- Make text content readable and understandable.
- Make Web pages appear and operate in predictable ways.
- Help users avoid and correct mistakes.
- Maximize compatibility with current and future user agents, including assistive technologies.
The Legislative Counsel Bureau's web development team has, for some time, been developing new pages with the goal of conforming to industry-known best practices for web content accessibility for persons with disabilities and for mobile device usage. Beginning in 2017, the team was tasked with reviewing and remediating significant portions of the existing website to further address these concerns. Because our website includes content dating back to 1945, the work is significant so we began the process by basing the priority of our effort on website traffic statistics we've collected, prioritizing remediation of higher traffic areas.
At the conclusion of the selection process, we began the remediation process for each page to conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 at the AA level.
Furthermore, we've implemented a feedback form on the footer of our site that can be used to report problems specific to web content accessibility.
The Legislature is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act for building accessibility by ensuring that our buildings have accessible parking, entrances, elevators, restrooms, and seating in chambers and committee hearing rooms.
