Oh, yes. That's right. We have even more hot Nevada Legislature news this morning!
We've been closely following SB 229 here. That's "The Save Tahoe Bill" that stands to repeal 2011's SB 271 and fully reinstate Nevada's commitment to cooperate with California and the federal government to preserve & protect the Lake Tahoe. Earlier this month, SB 229 passed the Senate Natural Resources Committee.
And then, there was last night. Shortly after another closely watched Senate bill passed late last night, SB 229 then passed in a strictly party line 11-10 vote. All the Democrats voted in favor, while all the Republicans voted against.
Nonetheless, it passed. And it's now heading to the Assembly. We'll see soon if more legislators are willing to correct an embarrassing mistake.
Oh, and there's also this. Yesterday was Earth Day. And really, what better way is there for Nevada to show commitment to smart environmental stewardship than to restore our commitment to cherishing one of our greatest natural treasures?
Assembly Members, take notice.
