Senator visits Tahoe on Tuesday

Advance reservations are required for the Tahoe-Douglas Chamber of Commerce State of the Basin Membership Luncheon with Sen. Richard Bryan of Nevada and Jim Baetge, executive director of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.

The luncheon is Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Horizon Casino Resort. Cost is $15 per person. Reservations can be made by calling the chamber office at (702) 588-4591.

Sen. Bryan will provide his annual update on business-related legislation passed in Washington. They include bills regarding Indian gaming and transportation issues that have significant ramifications for the Lake Tahoe Basin and the rest of Nevada.

Baetge will present a preliminary report on the Alternative Revenue Study, commissioned to find ways to raise funds in the Tahoe Basin for environmental improvements. Among the questions to be answered by the study is if it is legally and politically acceptable to raise $200 million over the next 10 years. That amount is an estimate of what it will cost for ongoing construction and maintenance of environmental projects such as erosion control and forest health improvements.

Questions for either Bryan or Baetge to address may be submitted to the chamber office in advance of the luncheon.
