SEC Commissioners and Staff

The 11-members of the State Environmental Commission — five selected by the governor and six appointed by statute — bring a range of expertise and professional experience to environmental rulemaking in Nevada. This diversity of perspectives and backgrounds makes for a well-rounded commission that can properly address relevant information, deliberate transparently, and make robust and lasting decisions.The SEC Commissioners
