LAKE TAHOE, Calif./Nev. – Today, U.S. Senator Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) introduced her bipartisan, bicameral legislation to extend the authorization of the Lake Tahoe Restoration Act. This law has delivered millions of dollars in federal funding to Lake Tahoe since the original law passed in 2000, supporting environmental protection and habitat restoration programs across the basin….
League to Save Lake Tahoe CEO Darcie Goodman Collins joined other Lake Tahoe advocates in Washington, D.C. this week to urge the electeds to push the restoration act’s reauthorization forward.
“The two prior Lake Tahoe Restoration Acts have fueled so much good work to Keep Tahoe Blue,“ said Goodman Collins. “We’re thrilled the new bill is supported so broadly by Tahoe’s federal delegation. The League will continue pushing for this new LTRA to become law, just as we did to help pass the 2000 and 2016 Acts.”Darcie Goodman Collins, CEO, League to Save Lake Tahoe
