Nevada Tahoe Bill Clears Assembly Committee

Posted: Updated:

An Assembly committee made short work of a bill repealing Nevada's threat to leave the bistate Tahoe Compact.

SB229 cleared the Assembly Government Affairs Committee on a unanimous vote Thursday. It now goes the floor.

The bill repeals a law passed by the 2011 Legislature that paved the way for Nevada to exit the Tahoe Compact created in the late 1960s to regulate development and oversee environmental controls in the Tahoe Basin that straddles Nevada and California.

Swift action on the bill came after Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and California Gov. Jerry Brown announced an agreement to protect Lake Tahoe's delicate ecosystem while also considering the economy when making land use decisions.
