CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A hearing to determine if an embattled Nevada assemblyman is competent to serve in the Nevada Legislature has been delayed.

The Select Committee to hear evidence and testimony on the behavior of North Las Vegas Democrat Steven Brooks had been scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

But Assembly Majority Leader William Horne says it's been postponed until 7:30 p.m. because Brooks' lawyer Mitchell Posin had travel delays.

The committee's task is to recommend what action, up to possible expulsion, should be taken against Brooks, who since January has been arrested twice and hospitalized for a mental evaluation. He's also been put on leave from the Legislature because of public incidents and was fired from his job as a parks and recreation analyst for the city of Las Vegas.
