    CLAY. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

    The six Nevada tribes that are affected by this legislation want to expand their reservations for a variety of purposes, including for recreational use, residential construction, and energy and mineral development. H.R. 2733 will allow the tribes to pursue these goals. By passing this bill, they will be able to preserve their cultural heritage and traditions, expand housing for their members, and realize new economic development opportunities.

    The final legislation is the result of years of negotiations between the tribes, the Federal Government, the State of Nevada, and local stakeholders.

    I commend my colleague from Nevada (Mr. Amodei) for his work on behalf of the Nevada tribes and on this legislation. I urge its quick adoption.

    Mr. Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
