Passage of the Northern Nevada Bill Will Have a Huge Economic Impact on Lyon County

where-we-could-be

The Northern Nevada Economic Development and Conservation Act is on the brink of being passed. We have two more hurdles and not a lot of time.  The bill was passed unanimously by the House on September 15, 2014. We are now waiting for Senate approval and the President’s signature. We have less than 20 days to accomplish those approvals.

If and when the bill passes, the economic impact will be felt. Especially in our rural Nevada communities where unemployment is high and the average salaries are low.

Passage of the bill will essentially help 7 of our northern Nevada communities acquire land by purchase from the Federal Government.

The city of Yerington, will purchase roughly 10,000 acres with the help of Nevada Copper. Once purchased, Nevada Copper plans to expand operations and implement Phase 2 of the mine plan.

Phase 2 of the mine plan would add 500 – 700 construction jobs and would employ around 950 permanent employees.

The comparison is depicted in the image above. The current size versus the potential size of the Nevada Copper project can be understood by comparing the size of a golf ball versus the size of a basketball. For example:

The current project is worth $35 million.

If the bill passes, the project will be worth $1.3 billion.

The current project will employ 430 permanent jobs.

If the bill passes, the project will employ over 1000.

This is an economic bill!

Why a popular Nevada lands deal got held up in Congress

sun

After three and a half years and about eight committee hearings, the bill finally passed the U.S. House of Representatives in September. The Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act would create about 73,500 acres of protected wilderness in exchange for allowing 23,000 acres of federal land for economic development, including a copper mine. The biggest Nevada lands package in 16 years now awaits a Senate vote……

Press Release: Unanimous vote sets Northern Nevada lands bills on path to final House passage

Congressman Mark Amodei : News Releases : Unanimous vote sets Northern Nevada lands bills on path to final House passage//

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE     Contact:               Brian Baluta (Amodei) 202-225-6155

WASHINGTON, D.C. –A historic package of Northern Nevada lands bills – six introduced by Rep. Mark Amodei (NV-2) and one by Rep. Steven Horsford (NV-4) — today passed the House Natural Resources Committee by unanimous consent. The bipartisan support clears the way for the legislation to be brought to the House floor in September as a non-controversial suspension bill.

The compromise agreement was made possible after adjustments to the legislation were made to a version passed in January.

“These are community-driven lands measures that will create jobs without cost to the federal taxpayer,” said Amodei. “For the second time in two years, the eyes of Northern Nevada turn to the Senate.”

“Working to create jobs and strengthen the middle class has been my number one priority in Congress,” said Horsford. “Today, Democrats and Republicans unanimously moved a legislative package forward that will grow Nevada’s economy. Thanks to Congressman Mark Amodei and others, we have been able to find common sense bipartisan solutions that bridge the partisan divide. When we work together and put Nevada first, political posturing fades into the background, and our constituents benefit.”

The Northern Nevada Land Conservation and Economic Development Act includes the following measures:

H.R. 433, the Pine Forest Range Recreation Enhancement Act

H.R. 696, the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act

H.R. 1167, the Restoring Storey County Act

H.R. 1168, the Carlin Economic Self-Determination Act

H.R. 1169, the Naval Air Station Fallon Housing and Safety Development Act

H.R. 1170, the Fernley Economic Self-Determination Act

H.R. 2455, the Elko Motocross and Tribal Conveyance Act

What Costs Nothing, but is Worth a Billion? Our Bill!

Worth 1 Billion Cost Nothing

The Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act will transfer 10,000 acres of BLM-administered federal land to the City of Yerington.

What Is It Worth? $1 Billion!

What Does it Cost? Not One Dime!!

*****NO COST TO THE TAXPAYERS*****

And, will jump-start the development of the Pumpkin Hollow Copper Mine that has an initial capital investment of $1 billion.

That’s not even the bottom line.  The new Copper Mine will help generate the following:

• $34 million in direct sales and use taxes
• $45 million annual local, direct payroll
• $10-12 million annually in net property and net proceeds of mines taxes
• $20-30 million annual federal taxes

What other federal legislation can claim that kind of economic benefit without costing the taxpayers?

We hope that this bipartisan, locally-supported bill, A ONE BILLION DOLLAR economic bill, will pass soon.

Lyon County Can’t Afford to Lose Any More Businesses

Pass Bills. Create Jobs.

Passing the Lyon County Economic Development Act – Bill HR – 433 is the right thing to do and we are one step closer to accomplishing just that.

The Lyon County Economic Development Act was listed on the United States Senate Calendar for floor action. It is official! We are one step closer.

What does it mean for Lyon County?

If the Bill passes, Pumpkin Hollow – a Nevada Copper Mine would be able to expand operations bringing 1,000 high paying jobs* to the county. *Average salary for a mining job is $85,000.00 a year.

We also can expect 1,500 additional jobs (not related to mining) to Lyon County businesses because of the worker’s multiplier effect.  That is a total of 2,500 new jobs expected to be  created in Lyon County.

If the Pumpkin Hollow Mine is able to expand operations, it will boost the local economy, living standards, business and employment opportunities in all of Northern Nevada.

What steps are left?

We still need the House of Representatives to get the bill to the floor for a vote.
