CARSON CITY, Nev. — The Nevada Assembly has gone on record as opposing proposed expansion of the Nellis Air Force Base testing and training range into the Desert National Wildlife Refuge.

The Nevada Appeal reported Thursday that Democratic Assemblywoman Lesley Cohen of Las Vegas supported an Assembly-approved resolution opposing the proposed expansion of the Nellis range by saying public lands should remain in public hands.

U.S. Rep. Mark Amodie, a Republican, on Tuesday told a legislative joint session that Nevada should work with the federal government to get some public lands in trade for expansion of Air Force and Navy ranges.
