Fourth Down and Goal

center

By Lyon County Commissioner Virgil Arellano

For the last five years Lyon County has been on the scrimmage line, battling in the trenches to get a jobs bill passed in Washington D.C.  In January of 2011 the unemployment rate in Lyon County Nevada was 19.8%.

Local leadership, along with stakeholders, huddled up with Nevada Copper to devise a winning economic game plan for the City of Yerington, our county and region of western Nevada. We knew it was going to be a hard fought battle but we suited up, put the pads on and hit the field. Our running back, Congressman Mark Amodei, and in a style reminiscent of Larry Csonka, took  us from our own one yard line with some hard, smash-mouth running.   We signed a wide receiver, Congressman Stephen Horsford, who with a few nifty moves, caught several critical passes for first downs.

Unfortunately the game’s officials from Washington D.C. kept stopping the game for penalties and replay. The penalties were costly as we saw businesses close, work force leaving, foreclosures and uncertainty increase as to our economic future.

At halftime we looked to Amodei for leadership and to keep running the ball. But we needed a play that we could really move the ball down the field. He drew up H.R. 5205 and we hit the field for the second half. While calling his own plays and along with Horsford, they made some first downs and substantial yardage. This could work! We were excited and re-energized. Not only would this give the fans in Lyon County a reason to cheer but it would also bring in fans from throughout Northern Nevada. Late into the fourth quarter, Amodei got a key block from Horsford to make a critical first down in the House Natural Resources Committee. Momentum had shifted and the end zone was getting closer. With less than seconds to go, and 52,000 Lyon County residents screaming in the stands, Amodei called the H.R. 5205 option play and we completed the pass play to Horsford to the one yard line in the House with just seconds left in the game.

Timeout! We are tired, exhausted, we have fought this battle in the trenches for five long years. We are one yard away from victory. The H.R. 5205 pass play was successful. Our team is now looking to the coaches, Senators Heller and Reid, to call the next play. It’s up to you now!

We have set it up for a touchdown. We don’t want the field goal. We don’t want the risk of it being blocked. This has been a team effort, we have run the ball hard, overcome the delay of game penalties from the game officials. WE NEED A TOUCHDOWN. It’s that simple. We want the winning play from our Senators before the clock runs out!  THIS IS IT TEAM! ONE PLAY, ONE CHANCE, NO HOLDING!

Press Release: U.S. House passes Northern Nevada lands package

featured image

The House on Monday approved a package of Northern Nevada land bills that would create about 74,000 acres of federal wilderness while paving the way for development that could bring an estimated 1,000 high-paying jobs to Lyon County.

The House passed the Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act sponsored by Reps. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City, and Steven Horsford, D-Nev. The package of seven bills must still be approved by the Senate, where it has the support of Nevada Sens. Harry Reid, a Democrat, and Dean Heller, a Republican.

Amodei said he is grateful the House passed the package but frustrated it took so long. He is worried that the Senate will have little time to act in the few legislative days left this year.

“This is a bipartisan, consensus package, but I’m quite frankly worried about the ability to get anything through the Senate right now,” Amodei said in an interview Monday.

The bill with the biggest impact is the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act, which would allow the city of Yerington to partner with Nevada Copper to buy and develop about 10,000 acres of land owned by the Bureau of Land Management.

The legislation would accelerate development of an open pit mine near an underground mine already under construction. The mine alone would create about 800 jobs that pay about $75,000 a year, Amodei said. The legislation also would allow development of an industrial park and recreation areas.

The bill would also designate about 48,000 acres in Lyon County as the Wovoka Wilderness Area, which would be protected from development. Local officials say that area has cultural significance to Native American tribes.

The wilderness designation was key to getting Democrats to support the Yerington bill. The legislation passed the House in the last Congress without the wilderness provision, but it died in the Senate.

“Yerington desperately needs an economic jolt, and this job-creating legislation will put Nevadans back to work,” Horsford said. “The Yerington Jobs Bill is an example of what we can get done in Washington when we put petty partisan differences aside and come together for the good of our constituents.”

Another bill in the Northern Nevada lands package would give Elko County and the Te-moak Tribe of Western Shoshone Indians of Nevada the opportunity to buy about 275 acres of federal land to be used as a motocross, bicycle, off-highway vehicle, or stock car racing area.

The legislation also creates a 26,000-acre Pine Forest Range Wilderness Area in Humboldt County. The bill directs the BLM to exchange federal land surrounding nearby ranches for private parcels within the wilderness area.

The bills passed by the House also would:

• Transfer about 400 acres of BLM land within the Fallon Naval Air Station to the secretary of the Navy to be used to provide housing for Navy families and allow the base to grow.

• Allow the city of Fernley to buy and develop about 9,100 acres of BLM land within the city boundaries.

• Allow the city of Carlin to buy and develop about 1,400 acres of BLM land surrounding the city.

• Transfer the surface rights to about 1,750 acres of BLM land in Virginia City to Storey County to resolve conflicting ownership and title claims in old mining areas.

RGJ Editorial: Nevada land bill deserves to be approved

lyon country lands bill

If all went according to plan on Monday — no sure thing when dealing with Congress, even for a bill with the kind of widespread support that the Nevada lands bill has — the long-awaited bill needed to help Yerington economic development efforts is on its way to the U.S. Senate today.

That’s good news for Yerington, and the rest of the state that will be affected by the package of bills that was due for a vote on Monday.

Time is running out on the current Congress, however, with the members ready to pack up and head home soon for the November election. If it’s not approved by Congress before the end, the sponsors, including Reps. Mark Amodei and Steven Horsford of Nevada, will have to start over.

Approval of the bill already is long overdue, so going back to square one would be a significant setback for everyone who has worked so hard on the package of bills and created a bipartisan compromise that Nevadans of all stripes can live with for many years to come.

Amodei and Horsford deserve praise for moving the bill this far. Now it’s up to Sen. Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat and Senate majority leader, and Sen. Dean Heller, the state’s Republican junior senator to ensure that the bills are approved by the Senate before time runs out on the 2013-14 session.

■ ■ ■

Such is life when some 85 percent of the land in the state is under the control of Congress, as it is in Nevada.

The odds are against that statistic changing any time in the foreseeable future, so Nevada needs to seek out small victories whenever it can.

The Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act is one of those opportunities.

H.R. 5205l actually consists of six land-related bills, five sponsored by Amodei, a Republican representing Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, and one sponsored by Horsford, a Democrat representing the 4th Congressional District.

For Yerington, the most important is H.R. 696, the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act, which would allow the city and Nevada Copper to purchase about 10,000 acres of BLM land surrounding the Pumpkin Hollow mine site (at fair-market value) for industrial, recreational and infrastructure projects. That project is a key to Lyon County’s economy, which was hit particularly hard by the Great Recession.

H.R. 696 also would designate 48,000 acres in Lyon County as the Wovoka Wilderness Area, a provision sought by Reid.

If approved, the omnibus bill also would designated 26,000 acres in the Blue Lakes and Alder Creek Wilderness Study Areas as the Pine Forest Range Wilderness Area. It would allow Fernley, Carlin, and Elko and Te-moak Tribe of Western Shoshone Indians to buy parcels of federal land for various parcels. And it would transfer 400 acres from the BLM to the Navy for the construction of military housing. (Even the government has to beg the government for land.)

The bill is the result of a lot of disagreements, negotiations and compromises. They make sense for Nevada, but they also make sense for the federal government. Before time runs out, it should be approved by the Senate and sent to the president for his signature.

Press Release: Horsford’s Yerington Jobs Bill Passes House

StevenHorsford
Sep 15, 2014
Press Release

*Watch Floor Remarks*

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Steven Horsford (NV-4) successfully passed his first bill, the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act, out of the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill was included as part of a package of Nevada lands bills (H.R. 5205, the Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act) introduced by Representative Mark Amodei (NV-2).

The Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act would enable the City of Yerington to partner with Nevada Copper to purchase, at fair market value, and develop approximately 10,000 acres of Bureau of Land Management land surrounding the Pumpkin Hollow project site for industrial, recreational, and infrastructure purposes, directly creating approximately 1,300 jobs. The bill would also designate approximately 48,000 acres in Lyon County as the Wovoka Wilderness Area, and will be the largest wilderness bill to become law in more than four years.

“I am so proud we were able to get this done for Nevada,” Horsford said. “In addition to moving this important job-creating bill, I am working with my colleagues to have the Tule Springs National Monument bill considered for action next. It is another critically important lands bill that will make Southern Nevada a world-class destination for archaeological tourism and revitalize the region’s economy.”

Below is a transcript of Rep. Horsford’s remarks on the House floor outlining the bill:

“Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Let me thank Ranking Subcommittee Chairman, Mr. Grijalva, for his leadership, and the Chairman for the House Natural Resources Committee.

“It’s my honor to be here in support of this legislation today.

“With this bill, the City of Yerington, which is one key provision of this bill within this measure, will be allowed to purchase at fair market value over 10,000 acres of land from the Bureau of Land Management.

“It is a very technical bill, but has tremendous impacts to the state of Nevada at large. This is a true benefit for Lyon County, and it is in no way a giveaway.  This project will generate between $15-25 million in annual revenue for Lyon County, Lyon County Schools, South Lyon Hospital District, the Mason Valley Fire Protection District and the State of Nevada.  Nevada Copper, the relevant mining company, already owns roughly 95% of the minerals to be mined, and it is contained on 1,500 acres of privately held land.

“We expect that the total economic impact of this development will create approximately 3,000 to 4,000 jobs, when you include indirect employment.  The mine itself will directly employ approximately 800-900, providing high quality wages for nearly two decades. This is in addition to the more than 500 people who will be employed during the construction phase.

“In this comprehensive development, up to 63%, of the acquired federal lands will be used for infrastructure, other economic development, and local recreation. We further anticipate that the City of Yerington will be able to draw in additional economic activity due to these infrastructure investments, which include power, roads, water, and sewer infrastructure.

“Additionally, this project is environmentally sound. In fact, the legislation includes the creation of the Wovoka Wilderness Act, which will protect old growth pinion pine, unique archeological sites, and preserve this region for future generations of Nevadans.

“This is a common sense bill that will create jobs for one of the most economically depressed counties in our country. And while it took time for this legislation to move, it reminds me that with hard work, determination, and a little bipartisanship, we can get things done.

“This is a bill that has unanimous support from the local community. It has unanimous support from the federal delegation of the state of Nevada. And it passed without objection out of the House Natural Resources committee.

“Let’s use the passage of a non-controversial bill out of the House as a lesson; that there is a place for Congress to help the American people. There is good that government can do, and something that appears to be a small achievement in the constellation of national politics will mean a lot to Lyon County, particularly the City of Yerington.

“In addition to moving this important job-creating bill, I am looking forward to working with my colleagues to move the Tule Springs National Monument bill considered for action next.

“On top of the national park designation, this bill would transfer land from the BLM to the Cities of Las Vegas and North Las Vegas for two 600-acre economic development zones. It would also transfer land across the street from the Southern Nevada Veterans Hospital. Mayor John Lee and I envision this space for a new medical complex that could be the anchor for a new medical school in southern Nevada.

“So let’s keep working. We have great momentum right now. Nevadans today see that we can get things done here in Washington. Washington can solve problems. And while today’s bill is just a tiny crack in the dam of congressional gridlock, if we keep moving forward where we have consensus, we can achieve great things for our constituents.

“I want to especially thank my colleague, Representative Mark Amodei, for all of his hard work on this important legislation. Our congressional districts both contain parts of Lyon County. He fought hard for this bill during previous sessions of Congress. His support has been critical to getting this entire package of bills through this House. And I want to continue working with him and our entire Nevada delegation to put our state first.

“I also want to thank the Ranking Member, Mr. DeFazio, for helping make this bill a top priority for our side of the aisle, as well as to the Subcommittee Chairman, Mr. Grijalva, for advocating for this bill to move quickly through the process.

“Last but not least, I want to thank Chairman Doc Hastings and the Chairman of the Subcommittee, Mr. Bishop, for working across the aisle and making this bill a priority. Since I have arrived in Congress, you both have been willing to work with me on important public lands issues for my home state, and I am grateful to you both for your service and for your civility in working together on the House Natural Resources Committee.

“Again, Mr. Speaker, this is an important bill that will create jobs that are desperately needed in a portion of Nevada’s fourth district, and I’d like to thank this body for their consideration and passage of this important legislation.”

Press Release: Reid Statement On House Passage of Northern Nevada Lands Bills

Harry Reid
Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act. This legislation contains language similar to that of legislation introduced in the Senate by Senator Reid and Senator Heller, including the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act, the Pine Forest Recreation Enhancement Act, and the Elko Motocross and Tribal Conveyance Act.“Congratulations to Congressmen Horsford and Amodei on the successful passage of the Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act,” said Reid. “I am pleased to see bipartisan support for this bill in the House of Representatives.

The Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act Includes the Following Measures:

Title I, the Pine Forest Range Recreation Enhancement Act: Would designate approximately 26,000 acres within the Blue Lakes and Alder Creek Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) as the Pine Forest Range Wilderness Area and release approximately 1,000 acres of the existing WSA lands. The bill would also direct the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to exchange federal lands surrounding nearby ranches for private parcels within the existing WSAs to allow for management of public lands and ensure the economic viability of privately owned ranches.

Title II, the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act: Would enable the City of Yerington to partner with Nevada Copper to purchase, at fair market value, and develop approximately 10,000 acres of BLM land surrounding the Pumpkin Hollow project site for industrial, recreational, and infrastructure purposes. The bill would also designate approximately 48,000 acres in Lyon County as the Wovoka Wilderness Area.

Title III, the Carlin Economic Self-Determination Act: Would convey to the City of Carlin approximately 1,400 acres of BLM land surrounding the city for the purpose of multi-use development.

Title IV, the Fernley Economic Self-Determination Act: Would convey to the City of Fernley up to approximately 9,114 acres of BLM and Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) lands within the city boundaries at fair market value for the purpose of multi-use development.

Title V, the Restoring Storey County Act: Would transfer the surface rights to approximately 1,745 acres of BLM land in Virginia City to Storey County to resolve conflicting ownership and title claims.

Title VI, the Elko Motocross and Tribal Conveyance Act: Would convey to Elko County approximately 275 acres of BLM land to be used as a motocross, bicycle, off-highway vehicle, or stock car racing area. It would also put approximately 373 acres of land into trust for the Te-Moak Tribe of the Western Shoshone Indians of Nevada.

Title VII, the Naval Air Station Fallon Housing and Safety Development Act: Would transfer an approximately 400 acre BLM parcel within the confines of the Fallon Naval Air Station to the Secretary of the Navy. This land would be used for housing Navy families and would provide needed flexibility to grow the base.

Press Release: Heller Welcomes Passage of Northern Nevada Lands Bill in U.S. House

web1_dean_heller_081512_6

Commends Congressman Amodei for leading House efforts on public lands package

Amodei

(Washington, DC) – United States Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) welcomed passage of the Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act (H.R. 5205) by the House of Representatives earlier tonight. Introduced by Congressman Mark Amodei (R-NV), this legislation contains highly valued measures for the state of Nevada, including job-creating measures such as the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act.

“From Day One, Mark worked extremely hard to negotiate a compromise with the Nevada House delegation and the Republican and Democrat House leadership. Public lands bills bring the Nevada delegation together, and Mark’s efforts to usher this legislation through the United States House of Representatives should be applauded. 

“I support this legislation and will work with Senator Reid and the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee to ensure this proposal appears on the President’s desk for signature prior to the end of the 113th Congress,” said Senator Heller.

Two of the largest components of H.R.5205 are the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act and the Pine Forest Range Recreation Enhancement Act, two long-standing proposals that would spur economic development, enhance U.S. national security, and conserve areas where thousands of Nevadans hunt, fish, camp, and hike every year.  Both of these proposals were jointly introduced by Senator Heller and Senator Reid, and cleared the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in 2013.

Senator Heller, a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, has also worked on counterparts to the Fernley Economic Self-Determination Act, the Elko Motocross and Tribal Conveyance Act and legislation to fix Storey County’s land issue, the Nevada Mining Townsite Conveyance Act. He supports all seven titles of Northern Nevada Public Lands package and will work to see them enacted before the end of this Congress.

Press Release: U.S. House of Representatives Unanimously Passes Lyon County Bill!!!

Lyon County Land Bill Big Google Search

NEWS RELEASE

TSX: NCU

 U.S. House of representatives Unanimously passes Lyon County Bill 

September 16, 2014 – Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) (“Nevada Copper” or “Company”)is very pleased to announce that the U.S. House of Representatives has unanimously passed H.R. 5205, the Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act (“Northern Nevada Bill”) on Monday, September 15, 2014. That bill includes the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act (the “Lyon County Bill” or “the Bill”).

With passage of the Lyon County Bill, permitting the much larger Stage 2 – 70,000 tons per day open pit mine can be finalized in early 2015 at the Company’s 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow copper project.  The project, located near Yerington, Nevada also includes a Stage 1 – 6,500 tons per day underground mine which is already permitted and in construction.

Attention now turns to passage of the Lyon County Bill in the Senate.  Both Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid (Democrat-Nevada) and Senator Dean Heller (Republican-Nevada) have previously stated their support when it was introduced on a bi-partisan basis in the Senate in 2013.  Passage of the Lyon County Bill by the Senate would allow for signature into law by President Obama in 2014. Once signed into law, the land acquisition must be completed within the six month period mandated by the Bill.  During this period, Nevada Copper would complete the remaining Stage 2 State permitting. Local and state officials are urging quick passage in the Senate, considering that the Lyon County Bill is not controversial and would have major economic benefits in one of the most economically depressed communities in Nevada and the nation.

Giulio Bonifacio, President and CEO, comments: “This is a significant milestone in our joint effort with Lyon County and the City of Yerington to pass the Lyon County Bill. Enactment of this Bill greatly enhances our ability to become fully permitted by early 2015 on our much larger Stage 2, open pit mine.  Our Stage 2 open pit mine currently represents proven and probable reserves of over 4.1 billion pounds of copper with a mine life of 22 years and annual average production of over 220 million pounds in the first 5 years.”

The Lyon County bill has received full, bipartisan support in the House and Senate that reflects years of efforts by local stakeholders, including the entire Nevada Congressional delegation, the County, the City, the Company, ranchers, recreationists, wilderness advocates, and external organizations to craft a compromise that works.

Timothy M. Dyhr, Vice President, Environment and External Relations, commented:  “This bill has been before Congress since 2011 and has been fully scrutinized. We commend Congressman Horsford, Congressman Amodei and new House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy for getting this bill passed.  We look forward to passage in the Senate.”

 About Nevada Copper

The Company’s advanced stage Pumpkin Hollow project in Nevada consists of a fully permitted, 6,500 tons/day Stage 1 underground copper mine development, currently in construction, and a nearby Stage 2, 70,000 tons/day open pit mine project in the advanced permitting phase.  Expected average copper production for the first five years is 75 million lbs/year from the Stage 1 underground mine and 221 million lbs/year from the Stage 2 open pit mine.

The project is located near Yerington, Nevada, close to road, rail, and power infrastructure, and with all future water supply requirements met.
