The Nevada Commission on Ethics is a commission that investigates ethics violations by government officials or employees in the state of Nevada in the United States.[1]

In 1975, the Nevada Legislature passed the Nevada Ethics in Government Law, creating the State Ethics Commission.[2][3] The law was struck down in 1976 by the Nevada Supreme Court for being unconstitutionally vague.[2][4] The legislature passed a revised law in 1977, creating the Executive Ethics Commission and the Legislative Ethics Commission.[2][5][6] The two commissions were dissolved in 1985 and replaced with the commission in its present form.[2][7]
