I want to commend the Outside Las Vegas Foundation for its editorial encouraging protection of Gold Butte.

Providing federal protection to Gold Butte will bring resources and attention to the area, making it even more accessible to hunters, campers, off-roaders, nature enthusiasts and out-of-state visitors.

A recent Outdoor Industry report revealed that outdoor recreation in Nevada is responsible for $14.9 billion in revenue and 148,000 jobs. A special designation for Gold Butte will expand our opportunities.
