Nevada has one of the largest shares of federal public land of any state in the country, providing important wildlife habitat, places to hunt, camp, fish and hike, and acting as the foundation of a billion dollar outdoor industry.

B) Would should the State of Nevada’s role be in the management and ownership of federal land?
having the federal government in charge of public land is probably the best way to ensure it is protected, the state and local government can suggest and promote how that land is used

A) Do you support or oppose state investment in conservation? B) Has Nevada’s investment in land conservation been too little, too much, or about right, and how would you change it?
i support the state's investment, unfortunately there is never enough $ for conservation, but we can keep trying
