Several pro public lands bills in the Nevada State Legislature will be receiving their committee hearing early next week. We hope you join us in Las Vegas to show up in support of our public lands!!
Show your support for public lands by attending the bill hearing on Monday, April 10th*:
Bill Descriptions: Senate Bill 413 (SB413) would establish the last Saturday in September of each year as “Public Lands Day” in the State of Nevada. An official Public Lands Day would serve as an annual reminder to our elected officials that Nevadans value our public lands and want to keep them public!
Senate Joint Resolution 12 (SJR12) seeks to rescind Senate Joint Resolution 1 (SJR1) that passed in the Nevada Legislature in 2015 and expresses support for the retention of federal management and control of federal public lands in this State. SJR1 urged Congress to transfer management of public lands in Nevada to state control and passed on an extremely thin margin and on pure party lines. Public lands should never be a partisan issue and it's imperative that we rescind SJR1 to send a clear message to our elected officials in Congress that Nevadans want to keep public lands in public hands!
When: Monday, April 10th. SB413 at 1:00pm / SJR12 at 3:30pm
Where: Grant Sawyer Building. 555 E Washington Ave. Las Vegas, NV. *Room numbers to be announced*
