    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL ^ | July 25, 2014 | SEAN WHALEY
    Nevada Power has amended its general rate increase request in a filing Friday with the state Public Utilities Commission, raising the revenue requirement to $37.8 million from the $20.8 million sought originally May 2. The effect of the new request, which totals about 81 percent, would be to impose an overall increase of 1.64 percent instead of the 0.9 percent request in the original filing.

    COVINGTON – U.S. Senator Rand Paul told members of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Friday that he is hopeful that legislation which would lower the tax on foreign corporate profits for U. S. corporations might have chance of passing, just not right now. The bill would allow companies like Apple to bring profits back to the United States at reduced tax rate. A similar tax holiday was enacted in 2004. Paul, who was speaking at the chamber’s government forum, said that the legislation probably would not come up for a vote this summer, but could see action at...

    BATTLE MOUNTAIN — Once again ranchers who run cattle on the Argenta Allotment in Lander County were told Wednesday that due to drought a number of areas would be closed to livestock.

We have 7 days to ride the entire mountain and have the cattle off. We are right in the middle of haying and are forced to drop everything and begin gathering cattle,” the Tomeras wrote. “We are forced to put the cattle...

    Scientists with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife are warning that streams harboring endangered salmon and steelhead could go dry because of the heavy water consumption by marijuana growers.

    A new study shows the lesser prairie chicken population has exploded by 20 percent prompting concern by western lawmakers that the Obama administration acted hastily when it listed the bird as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The aerial survey conducted last month by the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies showed the grouse species numbers jumped from 18,747 to 22,415. That study plus the Agriculture Department’s tardiness in reporting conservation efforts to Congress as required by law prompted a letter from lawmakers including Colorado Republican Rep. Scott Tipton demanding the report. “We request that your department provide this...

    CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Carson District Judge James Wilson has set an Aug. 1 hearing on a move to block an initiative petition to expand background checks to nearly all gun sales in Nevada. A group called Nevadans for Background Checks filed the petition on June 20, saying it was spurred by Gov. Brian Sandoval’s veto of similar legislation passed by the 2013 Legislature. But a group of opponents filed a lawsuit on July 14 to block the initiative. Among other objections, opponents say the petition fails to make clear that it would impose criminal penalties “even for a...

By some estimates, there are thousands of undocumented immigrants living in the Las Vegas valley. Metro Police has followed suit with cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philadelphia that have all said they will no longer honor ICE immigration holds without a warrant. One local attorney says for illegal immigrants, it meant being housed locally...

This ballot initiative seeks to criminalize most private transfers and mandate background checks for nearly all gun transfers in Nevada, with very limited exceptions. The lawsuit challenges the wording of the initiative alleging that it inaccurately characterizes the current state of the law as a “loophole.” This initiative also does not provide voters adequate notice of its intent to alter current law to include onerous criminal penalties for a violation of...

    Far right wing extremists have been emboldened by the standoff earlier this year between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government, according to a study released Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The report, entitled "War in the West" examines the conflict between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and militiamen who supported Bundy, who owed more than $1 million in grazing fees and fines to the government, despite insisting that he had "preemptive rights" to let his cattle graze on the federally owned land.

    The fate of a chicken-size bird carries huge economic and political stakes across the West. The sage grouse, long a threat to the thriving energy sector, is also a threat to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The ground-dwelling bird, which has habitat across Nevada and 10 other states, could be listed as a threatened or endangered species as soon as next year. Such a designation would place burdensome restrictions on the use of tens of millions of acres by ranchers, farmers, and oil and natural gas producers. Environmental organizations that want a halt to ranching and fossil fuel development are...

    Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy kept more than his cattle when he and his armed militia supporters from Oregon and elsewhere recently backed down the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. BLM officials say he also kept $1 million he owes for grazing without permits. But that sum is unproven, and the agency's diligence in collecting any sum from Bundy is questionable. -- BLM officials, however, have repeatedly refused to document the basis for their $1.1 million claim and won't say a word about whether it's attempted to collect the debt. The agency's stature earned another black eye last week from the...
