Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District issued the following statement today after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced its decision to reject a proposal to open a gravel pit mining operation in Sloan Hills. Congresswoman Titus was a sponsor of the Sloan Hills Withdrawal Act in the 111th Congress.

“I commend the BLM for listening to the thousands of area residents who opposed this mine. The proposed mine would have only exacerbated air quality concerns negatively affecting the health and well-being of children and seniors throughout the Valley. I was pleased to work with Commissioner Sisolak on this issue, and will continue to collaborate with BLM and Clark County on other public lands initiatives.”
