Chamber logo (1)It is fitting that as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, today we also celebrate the passage of the Northern Nevada Lands and Conservation Act by both houses of Congress.

This bill not only provides important protections of our beautiful natural resources, but it also provides meaningful economic development opportunities here in Northern Nevada.

This bill will bring thousands of high paying jobs to our region, as Nevada Copper will finally be able to undertake operations in the Yerington area.

We want to thank Senators Reid and Heller and Congressman Amodei for so effectively shepherding this legislation through a contentious Congress, and seeing it finally enacted as the law of the land.

Len Stevens
Executive Director
The Chamber of Reno, Sparks, and Northern Nevada
