Boxer lauds EPW advancement of Lake Tahoe Restoration Act
“I am pleased that the EPW Committee joined together to pass this bipartisan bill,” Boxer said. “It is critical we continue to protect Lake Tahoe, which is one of the most treasured places in my home state of California and is essential for tourism in both California and Nevada. I will continue to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle as we move forward with this legislation on the Senate floor.”
The bill, S. 1724, was introduced by Boxer and U.S. Sens. Dean Heller (R-NV), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Harry Reid (D-NV) with the intention of protecting the lake from pollution, such as storm water runoff, and reducing the risk of wildfires and threats to native species.
