Nevada and California have managed development at the lake together for 42 years. But now that Nevada has passed a law to pull out of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, a California lawmaker is proposing a bill in response. Bob Anderson is Chairman of the Tahoe Area Sierra Club. He says that's a good contingency plan, but he doesn't think Nevada will pull out.
ANDERSON: "The governor can extend it in 2015 and it may take several years to unfold but I think Nevada deep down cares about Lake Tahoe."
The California measure would create a new agency to oversee development if Nevada leaves the two-state development compact. Nevada will pull out in 2015 unless the law is revoked or the governor delays the decision.
