Reid: Nearly $7 million to Nevada and Lake Tahoe for conservation and recreation projects



SEARCHLIGHT, NEV.–Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management announced it will commit more than $6.8 million for conservation, recreation and wildfire prevention projects throughout Nevada and Lake Tahoe as part of the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act:

“Northern Nevada’s great outdoors have long been celebrated by Nevadans and global travelers, and we must continue working so all people can experience our state in new ways,” said Reid. “ Thanks to funds made available through public land sales, Northern Nevadans are able to build on important progress that has improved access to our great outdoors while protecting our state’s natural splendor for future generations.  I am also pleased that these funds will be used to make vital investments in wildfire prevention around Lake Tahoe.”
