ROSEN STATEMENT ON PROTECTING RED ROCK CANYON CONSERVATION AREA

February 22, 2017
Press Release

LAS VEGAS, NV - Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement after attending a press conference with local community and environmental activists in response to a proposal that would allow over 5,000 homes to be built near Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area:

“Red Rock Canyon is one of nature’s finest gifts to Nevada, and has served as refuge for local residents and out of state visitors alike. The conservation area is an economic driver for our region and is an integral part of our state’s sustainable outdoor economy which is responsible for more than 148,000 direct jobs and more than $1 billion in state and local tax revenue. I remain committed to ensuring our community conserves our environment, and believe it is imperative we protect Red Rock from overdevelopment so that future generations can continue to enjoy Nevada’s public lands.”
