Washington, D.C. –Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement on President Trump’s proposal to steal $230 million from the state and attack the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act. 

“For years, the GOP has worked to dismantle SNPLMA, a law that has provided our state with valuable resources to grow the community, increase outdoor recreation, and conserve public lands responsibly in Northern and Southern Nevada. By proposing to steal $230 million from the balance of the SNPLMA account, Republicans are ignoring the success this law has had in places like Red Rock Canyon and Lake Tahoe. Money from land sales in Clark County should not be siphoned off to build a wall along the border.”
