Sandoval meets with Calif. governor to talk Tahoe

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval is meeting with California Gov. Jerry Brown to talk about Lake Tahoe and renewable energy.

Brown’s office confirms the two leaders met Thursday morning, though details of the meeting were not released.

The meeting comes under the cloud of Nevada’s threat to leave the decades-old Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, a bipartisan group that governs environmental controls and development in the scenic basin that straddles the two states.

A bill pending in the Nevada Legislature seeks to repeal the law passed two years ago. But officials in the Sandoval administration have said keeping the threat alive to exit TRPA is needed to ensure both states cooperate on Tahoe issues.
