Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval made a last-ditch appeal to the federal Bureau of Land Management to accept Nevada’s recommendations for protecting the greater sage grouse.
Sandoval sent an eight-page letter Friday to BLM Director Neil Kornze, urging him to reconsider Nevada’s strategies for preserving the bird’s habitat. The BLM rejected some of Nevada’s suggestions earlier this summer, saying federal and state plans were in conflict and opting to pursue the federal strategy.
