The Future Of Tule Springs
The Future Of Tule Springs

Listen
AIR DATE: March 20, 2014

The legislation to make Tule Springs Fossil Beds a national monument had been on track until Republicans decided to amend the law in committee. They want to ensure that money from the sale of land for housing and commercial development goes back to the United States Treasury. That money had been due to come back to Southern Nevada to fund development of parks and other spaces. But Republicans see it as an earmark. So what kind of compromise will be needed to protect Tule Springs? And can Congress find it?
