Interior Releases Millions For Recreation, Wildfire Programs In Nevada
Interior Secretary David Berhardt has released nearly $106 million for recreation and wildfire programs in Nevada.
It reverses an effort by former secretary Ryan Zinke, who tried to cut funding for the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act program.
The program, also known as SNPLMA, was established by former Sens. Richard Bryan, Harry Reid and John Ensign.
The funding comes from the sale of public lands near Las Vegas, with the proceeds earmarked for improvement and conservation in and around Southern Nevada.
