The lieutenant governor, whose annual salary is $63,648, is responsible for presiding over all Nevada Senate floor proceedings. The lieutenant governor also serves as chair of the Nevada Commission of Tourism, which establishes policies and directs funding for tourism, and also serves on the Nevada Board of Transportation and the Board of Economic Development. And if something were to happen to the governor, such as a death, resignation or impeachment, the lieutenant governor would become governor.
