    Multiple rural counties have partnered with a law firm run by Republican candidate for governor Joey Gilbert — a Reno attorney who has challenged COVID-19 restrictions in Nevada and who appeared outside the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection — to explore litigation challenging state COVID-19 guidelines.

    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.

    Private businesses, including the Las Vegas Raiders, have become major influencers in getting people in Nevada to take the covid vaccine, said Pat Mulroy, senior fellow at Brookings Mountain West and member of the Wynn Resorts board of directors.
    “I think it is going to become a condition of employment and a condition for being able to attend (public events),” she said on Nevada Newsmakers.
    The Raiders have taken the lead in Las Vegas on the issue, she told host Sam Shad. However, only 48.62 percent of Nevadans have been fully vaccinated with another 10 percent partially vaccinated, according to data in the Nevada Independent.

    The public has until Friday, September 17 to comment on the Bureau of Land Management’s proposed Winnemucca Off Range Corrals in Paradise Valley. The private facility could warehouse up to 4,000 wild horses and burros rounded up on public land by BLM contractors.
    The corrals will be another temporary stop for horses and burros waiting to be transferred to long term “pastures” or adoption and sales events around the country according to the BLM.

    Near a remote stretch of U.S. Highway 50 between Ely and Great Basin National Park, tribal people for years have been on the defensive in a fight to protect an unusual stand of sacred trees.
    The groves of cone-bearing evergreens — known as Bahsahwahbee in Shoshone and swamp cedars by non-Native speakers — have been recognized as a ceremonial site and memorial to American Indian victims of 19th century massacres carried out by soldiers and vigilantes.
    “This is where our people were killed,” Rupert Steele, chairman of the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation, told the Reno Gazette Journal. “And those trees there? They're being fertilized by those that died there.”

    House Democrats approved their budget plan Tuesday after negotiating a deal with 10 moderates who threatened to kill the measure by withholding support until the House passed the Senate’s $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package.
    The budget vote, 220 to 212, triggers the reconciliation process, allowing committees of jurisdiction to begin drafting a $3.5 trillion package that can pass the Senate with a simple majority, rather than with the 60 votes typically needed to overcome a filibuster.

    Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn the Biden Administration's most recent pause on evictions, Nevada housing advocates and state officials had one message to share: Do not panic.
    Though the high court’s late Thursday decision places hundreds of thousands of tenants across the country at risk of eviction amid a slow rollout of federal rent relief funds tied to the COVID-19 pandemic, tenants in Nevada are still protected by AB486, Nevada Legal Services Senior Attorney Daniel Hansen said. The law, passed during the 2021 legislative session, aims to ensure that landlords do not evict individuals because of backlogs in rental aid disbursement.

    Pershing County leaders continued their search for ways to pay for at least one full-time paid person to oversee emergency medical services. The county can no longer depend strictly on volunteers for all ambulance calls plus the paperwork required to get paid for those services.
    Lovelock Volunteer Fire Department Chief Rod Wilcox has for years warned county leaders that volunteerism is in decline and a solution is needed before a crisis occurs in ambulance services.

    The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) is partnering with OnTrackNorthAmerica to create the Southwest Supply Chain Coalition that will better connect markets and lower costs, while at the same time addressing urgent climate change, safety, and congestion issues.
