Committees

The Nassau County Legislature is based on a committee system, consisting of
15 committees.
Resolutions and local laws are assigned to a committee (or committees) of the Legislature for consideration and potential approval. If approved in committee(s), the resolutions and local laws are placed on the calendar of the full Nassau County Legislature for consideration. Committees and the full Legislature may also conduct hearings as warranted. As per the Nassau County Charter, contracts are handled differently. Certain contracts for personal services, professional services, and other similarly characterized contracts, as well as purchasing and public works contracts are reviewed and potentially approved in the Rules Committee only. The public is invited to attend or view the stream of all committee meetings and meetings of the full Legislature.  A specific time period is allotted for public comment before each regular meeting of the full Legislature.
