Assembly Approves More Money For Tahoe Basin Environmental Projects
The Nevada Assembly last week approved a bill directing the state treasurer to issue $8 million in bonds this summer to fund Nevada’s share of the ongoing environmental improvement program in the Tahoe Basin.
AB220 marks the latest step in an ongoing program, which began 20 years ago when lawmakers authorized some $53 million in general obligation bonds.
All the money goes toward environmental projects in the basin. Those projects include such initiatives as water quality, erosion control and stream restoration.
AB220 now goes to the Senate for consideration.
