Digest

Senate Bill No. 358 of the 2003 Legislative Session, known as the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area and Adjacent Lands Act, restricts the authority of local governments to regulate planning, subdividing and zoning of certain lands located in and adjacent to Red Rock Canyon in Clark County. (Chapter 639, Statutes of Nevada 1993, p. 2673, as amended by chapter 105, Statutes of Nevada 2003, p. 595) In 2013, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled that the Act violates Sections 20, 21 and 25 of Article 4 of the Nevada Constitution on the grounds that it: (1) is a “local or special law” that “regulates county business”; and (2) establishes a “system of county government” that is not “uniform throughout the State.” (Attorney General v. Gypsum Resources, 129 Nev. Adv. Op. 4, 294 p.3d 404 (2013)) This bill revises the Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area and Adjacent Lands Act, the similarly worded Spring Mountains National Recreation Area Act (Chapter 198, Statutes of Nevada 2009, p. 734) and the Nevada Revised Statutes in a manner consistent with the decision in Gypsum Resources. Sections 1-4 of this bill restrict generally the authority of any local government in this State to enact certain changes relating to planning, subdividing and zoning of certain lands located within any national conservation area, national recreation area or adjacent lands. Section 5 of this bill repeals certain provisions of the Red Rock Canyon Recreation Area and Adjacent Lands Act which the Court in Gypsum Resources held unconstitutional, and also repeals certain provisions of the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area Act.
