Legislative Officer Bob Adams:

1.  Clark County Federal Public Land Resolution:  We lost that vote.  But the item was passed with emphasis on it being a work in progress. Who contacted their county commissioner before the meeting?  Who has contacted him/her after the meeting to discuss their vote and what’s next?

I hear what others should do.  Offer your help to do it.  Ask, “What can I do?”  Thank you, Steve Paxton, for putting out legislative issue alerts to his club members.  An effort every club can duplicate.

Anti-access comments outnumber ours 10 to 1, sometimes 100 to1.  Typically there’s 3 to 4 thousand comments.  That means were not out numbered.  It’s just most of us aren’t sending comments.


2.  Clark County OHV Advisory Committee: Applications are being accepted for an Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Advisory Committee, which will meet and advise the Clark County Board of County Commissioners on ways to protect, promote and enhance OHV recreation in southern Nevada. The committee was proposed at the June 19 county commissioners meeting. Once convened, the OHV Advisory Committee will hold public meetings as needed.

Suggested criteria for MRAN choosing a representative:

2.1.  A member who already regularly attends government, stakeholder, and MRAN meetings.

2.2.  Someone who enjoys reading and has a few hours every week to read legal/technical announcements, etc.  Able and will attend meetings prepared to discuss items on the agenda.  Who knows applicable law and process based on written policy and statue and how to find the text to support their position.  Don’t ask the government what the law says unless you already know the answer.

2.3.  Will represent MRAN based on positions made or affirmed by the Comp. Comm.  Someone in a govt. or corp. structure already aware of need to separate official policy and personal desire and opinion is optimal choice.


3.  Clark Co. Federal Public Land Resolution Compromise MAP:  Kenny Freeman submitted an alternative map to Senator Heller.  I’m sharing it for your consideration and possible decision.  I recommend against MRAN signing on to it.  It addresses only Jean.  I feel we’re better by addressing all of SNDO together.  And the BLM is giving us a better deal in RMP revision Alt. 3.   See maps in the addendum.


4.  Pahrump Valley Yellow Pine Solar Project: See Addendum.


5.  MRAN’s Congressionally designated RMAs: I’ve been busy on other issues and encountering shape file data transfer issues from BLM’s SNDO RMP revision RECREATION maps.  I’ve rx’d. old schedules.  Thank you.  But it’s raw data.  We a need team effort to write lists of race dates for each area.


6. Other ISSUES?: Please email or call so I can get back to you or see you Monday prepared to discuss them.
