RENO, Nev. (AP) - Rep. Mark Amodei has chided two fellow members of Nevada's congressional delegation for their descriptions of supporters of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.

The Republican says he disagrees with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's branding of them as "domestic terrorists" and doesn't think Heller's labeling of them as "patriots" helps to resolve the dispute over Bundy's cattle.

Amodei says the issue is the "culture" of U.S. Bureau of Land Management law-enforcement operations in the West.

Bundy and his armed supporters thwarted an attempt by the BLM two weeks ago to seize his family's cattle over his failure to pay $1.1 million in fees and penalties for use of government land over the past 20 years.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Amodei made the remarks Thursday on the "Nevada Newsmakers" program.
