LAS VEGAS -- The Assembly Select Committee announced Wednesday it will meet next week to discuss if Assemblyman Steven Brooks will be allowed to serve in the Legislature.

Assembly Majority Leader William Horne said the hearing will be on Tuesday, March 26 at 6 p.m. in Carson City District Court offices.

The committee will hear evidence presented by an independent counsel before recommending whether Brooks should retain his seat.

He could face expulsion, something that would require a two-thirds vote in the Assembly.

Since January the North Las Vegas Democrat has been arrested twice and hospitalized for a mental evaluation.

He banned from the Legislature Building in February and put on leave, though he is challenging that in the state Supreme Court.
