Legislation in offing to create new NMon in southern tip of Nevada

Rep. Dina Titus said Friday that she intends to introduce legislation to designate Avi Kwa Ame as a national monument, ushering in federal protections for 450,000 acres of land sacred to indigenous tribes near the southernmost tip of Nevada.

Titus plans to push forward the legislation when she returns to Congress “in the next week or so,” she told reporters during a news conference from the Springs Preserve, which in itself is land important to Native Americans as one of the first settlements of the Southern Paiute.
