We wouldn't bring this to you on a Sunday if it weren't important.
This Friday, Nevada legislators plan to move forward with anti-mustang/burro legislation through the state's Legislative Committee on Public Lands. Wild horses and burros really need you to attend this meeting, which will be held in Carson City and video-conferenced in Las Vegas on August 19, 2016 at 9 a.m.
This state Committee is scheduled to vote on three proposals that are harmful to wild horses and burros -- including one that would direct the State of Nevada to engage in litigation to force the federal government to round up and remove wild horses and burros from the range, and to conduct dangerous sterilization procedures on them.
As a Nevadan, your voice is important.
PLEASE take a moment to send a message to the Legislative Committee on Public Lands (see below) AND PLEASE ATTEND THIS IMPORTANT MEETING NEXT WEEK.
When: Friday, August 19, 2016 at 9 a.m. Public comment periods will take place at the beginning and end of the meeting. You must sign in to speak.
Where: Carson City: Room 3138 of the Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson St., Carson City, NV or
Las Vegas: Video conferenced to Room 4401 of the Grant Sawyer State Office Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV
What: Legislative Committee on Public Lands meeting. For the Agenda click here.
Your Message at the Meeting: The vast majority of Nevadans opposes the removal and sterilization of wild horses and burros and opposes litigation that would attempt to force the federal government to engage in these costly and inhumane practices. Instead legislators should support fair and humane management of wild horses and burros - including humane birth control and a fairer allocation of resources on public federal lands. (See additional talking points by clicking "Take Action" below).
Nevada legislators need to hear from constituents who support wild horses and burros. Please attend the meeting on Friday and take action tonight.
Thank you for standing up for wild horses and burros in Nevada! Your Voice Matters.
