Next month Sen. Dianne Feinstein will introduce legislation to Congress that will devote $390 million dollars to protect Lake Tahoe, the home of some of the best skiing and the best ski resorts in the world.  Senators and representatives, both Republican and Democrat from California and Nevada are supportive of the legislation. 

Nearly $1.5 billion dollars has already gone into the project since the first Tahoe summer in 1997 was hosted by Bill Clinton.  Those monies have been spent primarily on controlling erosion, treating ailing forests, forest fire prevention and restoring streams and wetlands.  If you have not been to Lake Tahoe, go there!  It is one of the most beautiful places on the planet and the skiing is incredible!
