Brooks Refuses Leave Of Absence And Attorney Accuses Commission Of Violating Open Meeting Laws

AIR DATE: February 11, 2013

After initial reports that embattled Assemblyman Steven Brooks would take a leave of absence from the legislature, it appears he will serve in this year's session. Brooks faces charges of threatening a public official after he was arrested for allegedly making threats against Nevada Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

Meanwhile, the debate over reduced trash pickup and increased recycling services in Clark County is still going on. Jon Ralston reports that a Las Vegas attorney has accused Clark County Commission Chair Steve Sisolak of violating open meeting laws after the Commissioner boasted about securing votes to approve changes requested by Republic Services. Jon Ralston joins us to talk about the latest on the battle over trash and the Steven Brooks case.
