CARSON CITY, Nev. (Mynews4.com & KRNV)- Assemblyman Steven Brooks flew into Reno Monday night, two days after being arrested for a second time in Las Vegas for alleged domestic battery.  Brooks was placed on paid administrative leave the same night and prohibited from even entering the Legislative Building.

While there were rumors that Brooks might show up at the Legislature, Legislative Police say he never made any attempt to enter the building.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has sent a letter to Legislative Counsel Bureau (LCB). OSHA received a notice that there was an "unstable and dangerous employee" at the Legislative Building. OSHA requested the LCB perform an investigation. 

The unstable employee was identified by the LCB as Assemblyman Steven Brooks.  The LCB responded to OSHA, stating that "ongoing measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of the employees and others in the Legislative Building."

Both documents can be found above.

An elected legislator is not an employee. OSHA is way out of line interfering with what legislators can attend the legislature. The legislature needs to let OSHA know in no uncertain terms who is in charge. This is a dangerous and slippery slope for a bureaucracy to even imagine it has any say in who attends the legislature for whatever reason. The Legislature can take care of the Legislature just fine thank You. Whoever wrote that letter should be immediately dismissed. I am shocked, stunned and dismayed.
