Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (H.R. 3742) is a federal bill that would provide states with $1.4 billion each year to more fully implement state wildlife action plans (SWAPs). If passed, Nevada would receive at least $23 million. Coupled with state match, the Nevada Department of Wildlife would have more than $31 million each year to conserve and manage our natural resources. Additional funds would also be available through a competitive grant process. Nevada’s State Wildlife Action Plan prioritizes 22 key habitats and 256 species, including mule deer, bighorn sheep, sage grouse, waterfowl, songbirds, reptiles, native fish and amphibians, and many mammals. Increased funding will enhance the Department's to manage and conserve wildlife, and enhance funding for law enforcement, conservation education, recreation, habitat restoration in addition to management of priority species. 

Currently, there are 162 bipartisan cosponsors on the bill, including Representatives Mark Amodei and Stephen Horsford of Nevada.
