No. 3–Assembly Concurrent Resolution, proposing to amend joint standing rule No. 1.

 

      Resolved by the Assembly of the State of Nevada, the Senate concurring, That joint standing rule No. 1 be amended so that it will read as follows:

      In every case of an amendment of a bill or joint or concurrent resolution agreed to in one house, dissented from in the other, and not receded from by the one making the same, such house shall appoint a committee to confer with a like committee to be appointed by the other, and the committee so appointed shall meet at a convenient hour to be agreed upon by their respective chairmen, and shall confer upon the differences between the two houses as indicated by the amendments made in one and rejected in the other, and report as early as convenient the result of their conference to their respective houses. The whole subject matter embraced in the bill or resolution shall be considered by the committee, and it may recommend recession by either house, new amendments, new bills or resolutions, or other changes as it sees fit. New bills or resolutions so reported shall be treated as amendments, unless such bills or resolutions are comprised entirely of original matter, in which case they shall receive the treatment required in the respective houses for original bills, or resolutions, as the case may be. The report of a conference committee may be adopted by acclamation, and such action may be considered equivalent to the adoption of amendments embodied therein. But such report shall not itself be subject to amendment, and if either house refuse to adopt such report, the conferees may be discharged and other conferees appointed; provided, however, that no more than three different conference committees shall be appointed on any one bill. No member who has served on a conference committee shall be appointed a member of another conference committee on the same bill.

No. 12–Assembly Joint Resolution, memorializing the Nevada state highway department, the Washoe County commissioners, and the Indian service to continue highways now being built into northern Washoe County.

 

[Approved March 18, 1947]

 

      Whereas, An area composed of northern Washoe County and parts of Humboldt and Pershing Counties is one of the few remaining vast expanses of territory in the State of Nevada without any access except by the emigrant trails cut through the sagebrush by the wagon wheels of the 49’ers; and

      Whereas, Many thousands of acres of fertile land with possibilities of water for irrigation are almost inaccessible because of very poor roads or none at all; and

      Whereas, The general direction of the present highway construction is toward a connecting link with the California and Oregon highway systems and is not in any sense a “dead end” road; and

      Whereas, The combined valuation of mines now operating along with other mining potentialities in this area may be reckoned in millions; and

      Whereas, The Indian service now has approximately two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) worth of valuable machinery, including up-to-date Diesel road building equipment for building a highway northward from Pyramid Lake to the north boundary of the Pyramid lake Indian reservation which, when oiled, will add about sixty miles of paved highway north of Reno; and

      Whereas, The Indian service cannot build roads outside of the Indian reservation unless other funds be allocated and specified to be spent; and

      Whereas, This road is in the federal secondary system and secondary funds can be spent thereon; therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the county commissioners of Washoe county be asked to recommend a very high priority for construction of this road, and that the highway department and public roads administration be memorialized to initiate construction on the link from the northern boundary of the Pyramid lake Indian reservation to Gerlach immediately; be it further

[Assembly Joint Resolution No. 24–Committee on Mines and Mining]

 

No. 15–Assembly Joint Resolution, memorializing Congress to oppose the recommendation of the secretary of the interior that all federally owned mineral land be kept in permanent federal ownership.

 

[Approved March 27, 1947]

 

      Whereas, It has been reported that the secretary of the interior of the United States has recommended to the Congress that all mineral land owned by the government of the United States be kept in permanent federal ownership in such manner as to prohibit the location and patenting of such land, and further to repeal the present mining laws which permit the location and patenting of mineral-bearing land; and

      Whereas, The development of mineral-bearing lands by location and patenting under the existing laws has contributed materially to the well being of the western states of the United States by making such property subject to taxation and in developing many areas and sections of the western states; and

      Whereas, The proposed recommendation of the secretary of the interior will materially affect the economy of the western states and will prevent the development of mineral-bearing areas throughout the western states; and

      Whereas, The proposed recommendation represents an unjust encroachment upon the development of the western mining states and the rights of private citizens to attempt mining ventures; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the Congress of the United States be memorialized to oppose any recommendation or plan of legislation having as its object the permanent continuance of federal ownership of mining lands in the United States, or the repeal of existing mining laws which permit the location and patenting of mining lands; and be it further

      Resolved, That duly certified copies of this resolution be forwarded by the secretary of the State of Nevada to the president of the United States, the secretary of the interior, and to the representatives of the State of Nevada in the senate and house of representatives of the United States Congress.

No. 16–Assembly Joint Resolution, memorializing Congress and the Nevada representatives in Congress to retain the name “Boulder Dam.”

 

[Approved March 27, 1947]

 

      Whereas, The Boulder dam located in the Black canyon of the Colorado river was completed in the year 1935; and

      Whereas, Prior to its completion it was officially named and designated as “Boulder Dam”; and

      Whereas, Because it is the highest dam in the world it has become widely known and heralded, described in current encyclopedias, and delineated upon maps under its official name, “Boulder dam”; and

      Whereas, Boulder City, located in the immediate vicinity of the dam, and being the city which serves the dam, bears its name because of the official name and designation of the dam itself; and

      Whereas, It is the sense of the Assembly and the Senate of the State of Nevada that the dam, being a national monument of outstanding importance, its name should not be changed or redesignated; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and the Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the legislature of the State of Nevada hereby memorialize and petition that the Congress of the United States retain the name and designation, to wit: “Boulder Dam”; and be it further

      Resolved, That the secretary of state of the State of Nevada be, and he hereby is, authorized and directed to transmit properly certified copies of this resolution to our senators and representative in Washington, and to the president of the United States senate, and to the speaker of the house of representatives.

Congress memorialized to abolish the civilian production administration

[Assembly Joint Resolution No. 25–Messrs. Ryan and Carlson]

 

No. 19–Assembly Joint Resolution, memorializing Congress to abolish the civilian production administration and to do away with all controls on building and construction materials, and on the construction of buildings.

 

[Approved March 27, 1947]

 

      Whereas, The civilian production administration, a bureau of the federal government, has promulgated rules and regulations restricting the use of building and construction materials; and

      Whereas, The civilian production administration has arbitrarily, and without any foundation in reason or in fact administered such rules and regulations to suit its own ends, and without regard for the best interests of the United States, its citizens, and the veterans of its wars; and

      Whereas, The unreasonable, arbitrary, self-serving and discriminatory rules and restrictions enforced through color of law by the civilian production administration have operated to favor one section of the nation against another, to set one class of citizens against another, to stir up internal strife, and have in no appreciable way contributed to the welfare of the nation, nor the needs of its citizens, nor have they provided any portion of the houses needed for veterans; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the Congress of the United States be memorialized to enact such legislation as may be necessary to abolish the civilian production administration, or any similar agency restricting or retarding building or construction, and further to repeal any and all laws in any manner restricting or placing limitations upon such building or construction; and be it further

      Resolved, That copies of this resolution, duly certified by the secretary of state of the State of Nevada, be sent to the president of the United States and to the representatives of the State of Nevada in the Congress of the United States.

      Whereas, Two of the greatest wars of all time have been successfully concluded by the armed forces of the United States of America, and the enemies of democratic principles of government have been toppled from their positions of might among the nations of the earth; and

      Whereas, Millions of men who fought in the armed forces of our government have been released and honorably discharged from further military service; and

      Whereas, There remain in the hospitals throughout the length and breadth of the land other thousands of men who suffered and bled at the hands of the enemy; and

      Whereas, Many of their comrades in arms sleep on foreign battlefields around the world, and can never be released to return to their homes and loved ones; and

      Whereas, Those who so nobly gave their lives and can never die from our memories, our gratitude, and our affections; and

      Whereas, There is now no national monument to honor those brave souls who no longer can speak for themselves; and those who daily suffer the living death confined within hospital walls; therefore, be it
