Nevada Gets $18 Million From Feds for Wildlife Projects

Posted: Updated:

Nevada will receive more than $18 million from the federal government for fish and wildlife conservation projects.
 
Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced Tuesday that Nevada would be getting part of the $1.1 billion in excise taxes collected on purchases of sporting and boating equipment. 
 
The tax applies to sporting firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, fishing equipment and electric boat motors. 
 
Jewell says the money helps fund conservation projects, creates access for recreational boaters and supports outdoor education programs for children.   (AP)
