Nevada Military Affairs and Civil Emergencies
Acting Adjutant General.
If the federally recognized Nevada National Guard, or any portion thereof, is called or ordered to active federal duty by the President, and if such call or order includes the Adjutant General and Assistant Adjutants General, the Governor may appoint an Acting Adjutant General who shall assume the responsibilities and powers and perform all duties required of the Adjutant General, and who must be selected from the federally recognized officers not called or ordered to active duty and who meet the qualifications established for the appointment of an Adjutant General, or if no such officer is available, then from the following:
Inactive or retired officers of the Nevada National Guard.
Army or Air Force officers who are inactive or have retired and are residents of the State of Nevada.
If, on the occurrence of a vacancy in the office of Adjutant General, there is no qualified and appointed Assistant Adjutant General, the Governor may designate an Acting Adjutant General who shall assume temporarily the responsibilities and powers and perform all duties required of the Adjutant General until such time as an Adjutant General is regularly appointed and qualified. An Acting Adjutant General designated under this provision must have the same qualifications as are required for the appointment of an Adjutant General.
The Acting Adjutant General serving under the terms of this section must be compensated as determined by the Governor, but the amount must not exceed that authorized for a regularly appointed Adjutant General.
