Assembly Joint Resolution No. 10–Messrs. Glaser and Roy Young

FILE NUMBER 26

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Public Land Law Review Commission to consider certain solutions to problems arising from the high proportion of lands owned by the Federal Government within the boundaries of the State of Nevada.

 

      Whereas, The people of the State of Nevada recognize the importance of the Public Land Law Review Commission’s current study and analysis of the public land laws of the United States of America; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly and Senate of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the Public Land Law Review Commission under its chairman, the Honorable Wayne N. Aspinall, and its staff director, Milton A. Pearl, is hereby commended for the expeditious manner in which it has launched the study and analysis of such public land laws of the United States; and be it further

      Resolved, That the Public Land Law Review Commission is hereby memorialized to consider the following matters of vital concern to the State of Nevada and the United States:

      1.  The Public Land Law Review Commission should recommend that Congress enact laws providing for:

      (a) Multiple use of public lands where uses are compatible;

      (b) The right to search for and acquire by discovery the private ownership of minerals;

      (c) The right to acquire and hold in private ownership agricultural lands;

      (d) The economic use of public lands for grazing purposes;

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1967 Statutes of Nevada, Page 1777 (File Number 26, AJR 10)ê

 

      (e) Proper protection and harvesting of timberlands; and

      (f) The preservation of areas for recreation, wildlife and scenic beauty, all for the purpose of utilizing economically and effectively the resources of the public lands.

      2.  The Public Land Law Review Commission should recognize that conservation and economic utilization of public lands for coordinated multiple use is in the public interest and should establish a policy that a coordinated land use program be applied on both private and public lands. Any change in land use practices on the public domain should be reviewed on the basis of a user’s continued balanced economic operation and no change should be made until local government and affected parties have been offered an opportunity to review and comment. Our Nation’s wealth is not measured by the federal ownership of real estate or resources. It is measured by the wealth and tax paying ability of the citizens who make up this Nation.

      3.  Nevada entered early into the Union of States. History shows that the Union was in desperate need of funds to finance the Civil War. The Territory of Nevada with her fabulous gold and silver mines was admitted to the Union prematurely in 1864. Although there was a policy of requiring a white population of 60,000 before statehood was granted, Nevada did not reach that population until 1910. In 1864, Nevada was granted sections 16 and 36 for educational purposes, under the then-congressional policies. This 4,000,000-acre grant was never consummated because in 1880 the Nevada legislature, in dire financial need, exchanged the 4,000,000-acre 16th-and-36th-sections grant for an outright grant of 2,000,000 acres. A study of history will show that Nevada has truly responded to the quirks of fate in the national interest. In five out of 17 counties in Nevada more than 97 percent of the land is federally owned, which creates local government finance problems. The Public Land Law Review Commission should recognize that federal agency withdrawals for special purposes should be reviewed in light of the detrimental effect on the local tax base. Further, the Public Land Law Review Commission must recognize and should recommend that Nevada, with over 86 percent of its land area owned by the Federal Government, is entitled to another land grant from the Federal Government.

      4.  To prevent utter chaos, any recommendations made by the Public Land Law Review Commission and subsequent action by the Congress and the President must recognize, respect and reaffirm state water right laws and the individual property rights developed thereunder.

      5.  Nevada endorses the new concept of local government participation enunciated in the Public Sales Act of 1964 (PL 88-608). This new concept of local government participation should be used in any modification, alteration or expansion of the land laws.

      6.  Many land laws permit sales at not less than “appraised fair market value.” At the present time, “appraised fair market value,” as used by federal land-administering agencies, ignores the fact that in many states whose land is largely public domain, scarcity of salable private land has forced unreasonable high “appraised fair market value” which discourages and eliminates potential purchasers. The Public Land Law Review Commission should develop and recommend some equitable type of appraisal which considers available utilities and provides for fair economic returns on investments where scarcity of marketable land influences land values.

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1967 Statutes of Nevada, Page 1778 (File Number 26, AJR 10)ê

 

of appraisal which considers available utilities and provides for fair economic returns on investments where scarcity of marketable land influences land values.

      7.  Recommendations by the Public Land Law Review Commission should advance the principle that the national interest requires modification of the 160-acre limitation as established by the Reclamation Act of 1902 and subsequent legislation. Consideration should be given to limitations of climate and soils in determining the productive potential of reclamation project lands, and the modern agricultural practices and investments required for economic and competitive agricultural operations.

      8.  Population growth with the resulting change in land use patterns and values places a heavy demand on the taxpayer to provide additional facilities for governmental services while abandoning existing facilities which have been rendered ineffective by population changes. Therefore, the reversionary clauses under the Recreation and Public Purposes Act of 1926, as amended, should be eliminated to insure that investments and capital improvements may be recovered and reused for similar purposes. The acreage limitations under the Act should be eliminated and each application be considered on its individual merit.

      9.  Each state has historically been afforded the opportunity of profiting by the natural resources within its boundaries. The Public Land Law Review Commission should recommend and clearly enunciate this policy by returning a greater share of revenue derived from the public domain to the affected states and by encouraging development and use of public land resources to the end that the local and state economy will be a full partner in any natural resource program.

      10.  Intermingled ownership of land among state and federal governmental agencies and individuals does not encourage proper conservation practices or efficient administration and management. The Public Land Law Review Commission should clearly state methods of liberalizing and standardizing exchange laws and regulations to encourage such exchanges and consolidation. Such recommendations should include exchanges of interests in land such as mineral, nonmineral, timber, rights-of-way, easements and leases.

      11.  The Public Land Law Review Commission should study and analyze the management philosophies and practices of the various public-land-administering agencies and then recommend uniform standards of management so that change in the use of resources on one segment of the public domain does not overburden the resources on adjoining public lands administered by a different agency; and be it further

      Resolved, That copies of this resolution be prepared and transmitted forthwith by the legislative counsel to the chairman and members of the Public Land Law Review Commission and to the staff director of such commission and to members of the Nevada congressional delegation.

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Proposing to amend section 9 of article 2 of the constitution of the State of Nevada, relating to the recall of public officers, by clarifying the qualifications of petitioners required to recall public officers.

 

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That section 9 of article 2 of the constitution of the State of Nevada be amended to read as follows:

      [Section] Sec. 9.  Every public officer in the State of Nevada is subject, as herein provided, to recall from office by the [qualified electors] registered voters of this state, or of the county, district, or municipality, from which he was elected. For this purpose [not less than twenty-five per cent (25%) of the qualified electors who vote] a number of registered voters not less than twenty-five per cent (25%) of the number who actually voted in the state or in the county, district, or municipality electing said officer, at the preceding general election, [for justice of the supreme court,] shall file their petition, in the manner herein provided, demanding his recall by the people; they shall set forth in said petition, in not exceeding two hundred (200) words, the reasons why said recall is demanded. If he shall offer his resignation, it shall be accepted and take effect on the day it is offered, and the vacancy thereby caused shall be filled in the manner provided by law. If he shall not resign within five (5) days after the petition is filed, a special election shall be ordered to be held within twenty days (20) after the issuance of the call therefor, in the state, or county, district, or municipality electing said officer, to determine whether the people will recall said officer. On the ballot at said election shall be printed verbatim as set forth in the recall petition, the reasons for demanding the recall of said officer, and in not more than two hundred (200) words, the officer’s justification of his course in office.

than two hundred (200) words, the officer’s justification of his course in office. He shall continue to perform the duties of his office until the result of said election shall be finally declared. Other candidates for the office may be nominated to be voted for at said special election. The candidate who shall receive highest number of votes at said special election shall be deemed elected for the remainder of the term, whether it be the person against whom the recall petition was filed, or another. The recall petition shall be filed with the officer with whom the petition for nomination to such office shall be filed, and the same officer shall order the special election when it is required. No such petition shall be circulated or filed against any officer until he has actually held his office six (6) months, save and except that it may be filed against a senator or assemblyman in the legislature at any time after ten (10) days from the beginning of the first session after his election. After one such petition and special election, no further recall petition shall be filed against the same officer during the term for which he was elected, unless such further petitioners shall pay into the public treasury from which the expenses of said special election have been paid, the whole amount paid out of said public treasury as expenses for the preceding special election. Such additional legislation as may aid the operation of this section shall be provided by law.

      Whereas, Costs of producing this precious metal have continued to increase at an alarming rate reflecting the impact of inflation upon the economics of gold mining and milling operations with the result that virtually all gold producers in the United States have closed down their properties; and

economics of gold mining and milling operations with the result that virtually all gold producers in the United States have closed down their properties; and

      Whereas, Domestic gold production, which amounted to approximately 5,000,000 ounces in 1940, has now dropped to an annual rate slightly in excess of 1,500,000 ounces while current domestic gold consumption for defense and space needs, industrial requirements, the arts and crafts, and dental use has rapidly risen to a significant rate of approximately 6,000,000 ounces per annum, over three times the rate of production in the United States; and

      Whereas, The continuing outflow of gold and failure to solve our balance of payments deficit continues to be of ever greater national concern; and

      Whereas, The disparity between domestic consumption and production imposes an additional substantial drain upon the monetary gold reserves of the United States; and

      Whereas, Federal relief legislation revitalizing the United States gold mining industry could well end continuing substantial depletion of our monetary gold reserves as well as supplying the demands of United States internal domestic gold consumption and, therefore, alleviate to some extent the concern in foreign circles over our monetary stability; and

      Whereas, Legislation to stimulate domestic gold production is definitely in the national interest; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and the Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the members of the legislature of the State of Nevada respectfully request the Congress of the United States to provide federal financial assistance payments to domestic gold producers in order to stabilize the few gold properties now existing in the United States, to reopen dormant gold mines and to encourage aggressive exploration for new gold ore reserves in this country; and be it further

      Resolved, That copies of this resolution be prepared and transmitted forthwith by the legislative counsel to the Vice President of the United States, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, each member of the Nevada congressional delegation and the Secretary of the Interior.

FILE NUMBER 42

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Urging the Congress of the United States to restore cuts in federal funds for construction of the Nevada portion of the interstate highway system.

 

      Whereas, The Bureau of Public Roads of the Department of Transportation in late November 1966 advised all states of a cut in their authority to obligate federal highway funds for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1967, and a retroactive prohibition on obligating any funds not yet obligated from previous apportionments as of June 30, 1966; and

      Whereas, The State of Nevada was notified in October 1966 that $29,000,000 would be available for the current year and that such $29,000,000 was $6,000,000 less than anticipated and that the State of Nevada nevertheless geared its highway construction program to the lesser amount; and

      Whereas, When, in November, a further reduction of $7,000,000 was announced, it was difficult for the State of Nevada further to curtail its highway construction program effectively; and

      Whereas, The State of Nevada has geared its highway planning and steadily increasing construction in reliance on the promises, announced policies, budgets, statutes and urgings of the Federal Government and has employed a large number of construction engineers and consulting engineers; and

      Whereas, At the present time the private construction industry is experiencing a serious recession in Nevada with employment down approximately 50 percent; and

      Whereas, The reduction in federal assistance will compound widespread unemployment in the construction industry with resultant economic effects on all sectors of the economy; and

      Whereas, The reduction will severely curtail this state’s efforts to achieve an adequate state highway transportation system and to fulfill its obligations to complete its portion of the interstate highway system; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That the Congress of the United States of America is hereby memorialized to prepare legislation which will restore all federal funds in aid of state highway construction to the level in effect before the cutback; and be it further

      Resolved, That copies of this resolution be prepared and transmitted forthwith by the legislative counsel to the President of the United States, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President of the Senate of the United States of America, to United States Senators Alan Bible and Howard Cannon, to Representative in Congress Walter S. Baring, to the Chairmen of the Ways and Means and Public Works Committees of the House of Representatives and to the Secretary of the Department of Transportation.

      Whereas, George Washington, father of his country and first President of the United States, was born February 22, 1732; and

      Whereas, The victorious revolution of the colonies into a nation was, though aided by the errors of their adversaries, largely the result of the conduct and character of George Washington; and

      Whereas, Diffident as he was about his own capabilities, he set a magnificent standard for American presidents in holding his contentions and self-serving countrymen on a steady course; and

      Whereas, The fortitude with which he met overwhelming difficulties was based upon his faith; defeats to him were merely temporary setbacks and victories merely longer or shorter steps toward final success; and

      Whereas, The desire that his country prove worthy of the liberty it had gained, that it should take high rank among the nations of the world, was coupled with the knowledge that this was only to be gained and held by a strong union and by honorable conduct; and

      Whereas, His insights in this regard may well be an example to us all; now, therefore, be it

      Whereas, The State of Nevada is now experiencing a serious financial problem as the cost of state government increases with rising population; and

      Whereas, This financial problem is also attributable in part to the limited property tax base resulting from a disproportionate amount of federally owned land in this state and attributable also to the constant pressures upon the available sources of revenue by federal tax policies; and

      Whereas, The Federal Government has considered ways and means of returning to the states part of the revenues collected in the states to reimburse the states to some extent for expenses and changes created by federal activities and to ease the financial burdens which many states are now facing; and

      Whereas, The amount of money taken from Nevada each year for federal income tax is significant; now, therefore, be it

ASSEMBLY CONCURRENT RESOLUTION–Encouraging the board of regents of the University of Nevada to continue to study the feasibility of establishing medical school facilities on the Reno campus of the University of Nevada.

 

      Whereas, The board of regents of the University of Nevada has instituted action which may eventually lead to the development of a medical school in northern Nevada; and

      Whereas, Nevada must prepare to meet its future need for professional medical personnel rather than expect the need to be satisfied by migration of such personnel from out of state, in view of the fact that the number of doctors in proportion to the total population of Nevada has declined to one-half what it was in 1940; and

      Whereas, Nevada must provide increased educational opportunity for its young people who wish to become doctors since there is evidence that other state medical schools will have to provide for their own students and will be unable to accept students from out of state; and

      Whereas, Nevada ranks 49th among the states in the number of its students enrolled in medical schools, and the establishment of a 2-year medical school in Nevada would help to alleviate this situation; and

      Whereas, The establishment of a medical school will stimulate all undergraduate and graduate programs of the University of Nevada; and

      Whereas, Undergraduate and graduate programs at the University of Nevada have been built up over the last 5 years to support a medical school; and

      Whereas, Since 4 to 6 years are required to plan, build and begin operation of a medical school, it would be after 1980 before the first medical students would be able to practice; and

      Whereas, Over $600,000 in money and property is available for construction of a medical school facility at no cost to the state; and

      Whereas, The opportunity now exists to correlate the building of the medical school with the expansion of the Washoe Medical Center in Washoe County at no cost to the state; and

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1967 Statutes of Nevada, Page 1811 (File Number 82, ACR 15)ê

 

      Whereas, Money raised for such a medical school through private foundations would be matched on a two-to-one basis by federal moneys available only until June 30, 1968; and

      Whereas, No state appropriation would be needed until students are enrolled (approximately 1973), when the cost to the state of the medical school would range between $200,000 and $300,000 per year; and

      Whereas, Other states have successfully initiated medical schools when their population and tax base was comparable to that of Nevada in 1967; and

      Whereas, No greater medical bargain than that which now faces the state will ever be available; and

      Whereas, No federal grant or private foundation money will ever be available until the Nevada legislature declares its intent to support the medical school, when and if it is built; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly of the State of Nevada, the Senate concurring, That the legislature concurs in the course of action taken by the board of regents of the University of Nevada in relation to its proposal to study the feasibility of ultimately establishing a medical school in northern Nevada and encourages the continuation of such study; and be it further

      Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted forthwith by the legislative counsel to the president of the University of Nevada and to the chairman and each member of the board of regents, and to the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare.

Such commission shall be composed of two district judges appointed by the chief justice of the supreme court, two members of the State Bar of Nevada, a public corporation created by statute, who have practiced law at least 10 years in this state, appointed by the board of governors of the State Bar of Nevada, and three electors of the State of Nevada, who shall not be in government service or members of the State Bar of Nevada, or residents of the same county, to be appointed by the governor.

      2.  A statement of the charges alleged for his removal or the grounds for his retirement shall be served upon the judicial officer whose removal or retirement is proposed. No judicial officer may by virtue of this section be:

      8.  The commission shall review the budgets, salaries, expense accounts and other matters involving the compensation of justices of the supreme court and judges of the district court in relation to the workload of each judge or justice and the average income of attorneys in private practice within each district, and shall make a written report to the legislature or legislative commission, on or before February 15 of each year, of such findings and any recommendations it may have pertaining to such salaries.

FILE NUMBER 139

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Congress to take the necessary steps to apportion to the State of Nevada its fair share of public lands highways funds.

 

      Whereas, The Congress of the United States has periodically appropriated funds for the construction of highways across public lands; and

      Whereas, Since the inception of the program, the State of Nevada has received the sum of $1,695,058 with only $900,000 being received in the last 10 years; and

      Whereas, The states have recognized that this field of taxation presents problems, both of administration by the states and of fairness to the taxpayer, whose solution requires concerted action beyond the borders of the individual states; and

      Whereas, The states, working through their Council of State Governments, have devised the Multistate Tax Compact to facilitate administration, promote uniformity where appropriate, ease taxpayer compliance and avoid duplicative taxation; and

      Whereas, Nevada has recently ratified this compact, and at least four other states have done so, leaving at most two ratifications to be secured before the compact by its terms may become effective; and

      Whereas, This legislature is informed and believes that the compact is receiving favorable consideration in at least five other states; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That this legislature respectfully memorializes the Congress of the United States:

      1.  Not to enact H.R. 2158 or any other legislation designed to restrict or direct the states or their political subdivisions as to the objects or subjects upon which they may impose taxes or as to the manner in which such taxes may be administered; and

      2.  To enact promptly such legislation as may be introduced to give the consent of Congress to the adoption of the Multistate Tax Compact;

and be it further

      Resolved, That the legislative counsel forthwith prepare and transmit a copy of this resolution to each member of the Nevada congressional delegation and to the Council of State Governments.
