President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law on Dec. 19th, 2014. The NDAA includes additional provisions that contain the largest public lands package since 2009.
The provision will direct the sale of 10,400 acres of land from the federal government to the City of Yerington. The land purchase will help the Pumpkin Hollow Copper Project realize its potential and bring high-paying jobs to Lyon County.
