Lieutenant Governor Brian Krolicki was in the South Lake Tahoe area to talk about why Nevada and California can work together to bring the 2022 Winter Olympics to Lake Tahoe.
"Lake Tahoe is one of Mother Nature's jewels that both states share and we have custody and stewardship of it so we will do it right."
Krolicki said if the Olympics are held here they would encompass the entire region from the Bay Area to Elko.
He also said if Reno-Tahoe did secure the games, it would provide a big boost to the economy for decades just as the Squaw Valley Winter Olympics did in 1960.
"The things we would do to host the games and the world, these physical aspects would last for decades. You look at places for Salt Lake City where the games were held in 2002, these things were a catalyst for so much of their economic development success."
Right now any U.S. bid for the games is on hold until an agreement is reached over revenues with the International Olympic Committee.
The decision for the 2022 bid will be made in three years.
