AIR DATE: April 4, 2011

There's a bill circulating in the Nevada legislature that will remove Nevada from the Tahoe Regional Planning Compact.  That's the compact formed in 1969 that creates a co-op between California and Nevada to protect Lake Tahoe.  But, for years landowners have fought it, claiming it takes away from their ability to expand development.

Thank you for having me on the show to talk about Lake Tahoe. I didn't get to mention that it was Nevada's leadership some 40 years ago that lead to the formation of TRPA and polling data show that people in Las Vegas still care deeply about our lake environment. While we do have rules for a good reason, these rules have actually protected property values over the last several decades and continue to protect this irreplaceable resource. Thank you.
