The 10th anniversary of the Tahoe Forum will be celebrated August 17th, and Former President Bill Clinton will be there.
Clinton and then-Vice President Al Gore attended the first forum organized by Nevada U.S. Senator Harry Reid in 1997 to bring national attention to the ecological problems that threaten to dull
Lake Tahoe's famed clarity. At that summit, Clinton signed an executive order recognizing Lake Tahoe as an area of national concern and pledged $50 million in federal spending to address the Tahoe Basin's environmental woes.
Others scheduled to attend the August 17th forum at Sierra
Nevada College in Incline Village include U.S. Senators John Ensign
and Diane Feinstein, former Senator and Governor Richard Bryan,
Governor Jim Gibbons, and Nevada Representative Dean Heller.
