HOUSE NATURAL RESOURCE COMMITTEE DELAYS MARKUP
On February 27th, the House committee on Natural Resources was scheduled to markup
(whether to move the bill to a full house vote). A last minute package of amendments changing 18 pages out of the 57 page bill was unpalatable to our Congressional Delegation and us!
Work is continuing to answer the committee questions and provide them the information that they need to LEAVE THE BILL ALONE. We have worked with all stakeholders for 5 years and each page of the bill has been carefully negotiated. We are hopeful that the committee will understand that Nevadans have a right to a National Monument designed the way that they want to have it!
