  • Judge denies Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, Burns Paiute Tribe request to halt activity at Thacker Pass mine site
    Tuesday, September 14, 2021 1:00 AM
    District Court Judge Miranda Du again denied a petition to delay preliminary excavations at the planned Thacker Pass lithium mine on Friday, a decision that means work at the mine site can continue but one that could also set up a conflict with demonstrators camped in the area.

    Gov. Steve Sisolak plans to revive a mining oversight board — with the power to request audits, review regulations, call witnesses and subpoena documents — after state officials let the commission quietly wither in the six years since it held its last recorded meeting. 
    In 2011, the Legislature approved the Mining Oversight and Accountability Commission with a bipartisan vote. But the board, meant to function similarly to the Gaming Commission, never fully got off the ground, even when it had a quorum. The board, housed in the Department of Taxation, lacked resources, former board members told The Nevada Independent last year.

    The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN) is promoting Lifeline Awareness Week, Sept. 20-24. The Lifeline Assistance Program is a government benefit program supported

    The PUCN wants residents to “stay connected” and is reaching out to those who need voice or broadband services but can’t afford it. Lifeline helps low-income consumers connect to the nation’s communications networks, find jobs, access health care services, connect with family, and call for help in an emergency.
