BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. TITUS. Mr. Chairman, I rise in strong support of this amendment to enhance access to public lands by acquiring right-of-ways from willing sellers.

The Federal Government owns more than 85 percent of the land in my State of Nevada, which includes some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Nation. Outdoor recreation supports nearly 20,000 jobs in Nevada, and it generates $116 million in annual State taxes. By increasing public access to these Federal lands for hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and other recreational purposes, we would be doing something that would not only help our economy but would be welcomed by enthusiasts throughout the State.
