N.R.S. 304.090 – Omitted area: Attachment to appropriate congressional district
Overview of Statute
This section requires the Secretary of State to attach any area not included in a Congressional District to an existing district, and provides rules governing to which district the area attaches.
[Superseded by the Congressional Districts based on the 2010 Census and approved by the Court pursuant to the Order set forth in the Appendix to Chapter 304 of NRS beginning at page 304-15, until the Legislature takes further action regarding apportionment of the Congressional Districts.]
1. If any area of this State is omitted from the provisions of NRS 304.060 to 304.120, inclusive, inadvertently or by virtue of the complexities of the information supplied to the Legislature, the county clerk, the Carson City clerk or the Director of the Legislative Counsel Bureau, upon discovery of the omission, shall notify the Secretary of State of the omission. The Secretary of State shall attach that area to the appropriate congressional district as follows:
(a) If the area is surrounded by a congressional district, the area must be attached to that district.
(b) If the area is contiguous to two or more congressional districts, the area must be attached to the district that has the least population.
2. Any attachments made pursuant to the provisions of this section must be certified in writing and filed with the Director of the Legislative Counsel Bureau and with the Secretary of State. No change may be made in any attachments until the districts are again reapportioned.
