Rep. Mark Amodei announced the reintroduction of the Lake Tahoe Restoration Reauthorization Act, along with original cosponsors: Reps. Dina Titus, Susie Lee, Steven Horsford, and John Garamendi. This bipartisan legislation reauthorizes $415 million in funding through September 30, 2034 to reduce the threat of wildfire, combat invasive species, improve water clarity, and restore the environment in the Lake Tahoe Basin.

Lake Tahoe is a natural wonder and key pillar of our local economy,” said Rep. Amodei. “We have a shared responsibility to preserve its beauty for generations to come, so I am proud to team up with my colleagues from Nevada and California to reauthorize funding for important management projects that will restore the environment and avert imminent threats in the Lake Tahoe Basin.”

“Anyone who’s visited Lake Tahoe understands the importance of preserving it for future generations. It is nothing less than a national treasure,” said Rep. Titus. “I’m working with my colleagues to push for this critical funding to protect Nevada’s environment and boost our vibrant tourism sector.”

“Nevadans and tourists from around the world flock to Lake Tahoe by the millions each year to experience its world class skiing and boating, stunning trails, and incredible diversity of wildlife, making it a crucial part of our state’s economy and a landmark of our nation’s natural beauty,” said Rep. Lee. “That’s why I’m proud to stand with my fellow Nevadans to reintroduce the Lake Tahoe Restoration Reauthorization Act. Whether it’s stopping wildfires, invasive species, or the human toll on the environment in the Tahoe Basin, we must act now to preserve the Lake and surrounding environment for generations to come.”

“Lake Tahoe’s stunning landscapes and clear blue water make it one of the world’s finest treasures, cherished by Nevadans and tourists alike,” said Rep. Horsford. “This legislation will provide critical funding to increase water clarity, combat invasive species and properly manage the Lake Tahoe basin. I’m proud to be part of this bipartisan, bicameral effort to preserve and protect Lake Tahoe for future generations of Nevadans, and all Americans, to enjoy.”

“Lake Tahoe is a national treasure,” said Rep. Garamendi. “Keeping Tahoe blue should be more than a bumper sticker—it should be a priority in Congress. This bill will provide additional federal funding for public projects across the Tahoe Basin desperately needs to stop devastating wildfires with responsible forest management, restore the watersheds by reducing runoff, and combat invasive species. As the lead House author of the 2016 Lake Tahoe Restoration Act, I am thrilled to again work with my Congressional colleagues to reauthorize federal funding to Keep Tahoe Blue for residents and visitors alike for generations to come.”
