U.S. Senators Dean Heller (R-NV) and Martin Heinrich (D-NM) led a group of senators to introduce a bill to reauthorize the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act (FLTFA). Before it expired in 2011, FLTFA allowed the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service in the western United States to use the proceeds from sales of certain federally designated areas to protect lands of exceptional conservation value.
We thank Senator Heller in co-sponsoring this public lands bill that will aid conservation efforts in Nevada.
