CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Senate committee in Washington, D.C.,
has passed a renewed push for environmental projects at Lake Tahoe.

The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Thursday
approved the Lake Tahoe Restoration Act of 2011. It authorizes $415
million over 10 years to continue projects initiated in the late
1990s to protect the clarity of the famed lake that straddles the
Nevada-California line in the Sierra.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada sponsored the bill
along with California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.

The legislation, while authorizing the federal expenditure, does
not include an appropriation.
