Greetings from Lake Mead National Recreation Area

Sen Cortez Masto has drafted bill that expands a local (Las Vegas) area Lake Mead NP and connect it to Mohave National Preserve. This bill deserves our support. I’m a member of the International Dark Skies Association and am an amateur astronomer. I’d like to see a lighting provisions added to the bill.

Sincerely,
Kevin
