This article presents information about a legislation related to water passed in the United States. Most of the legislation was routine, but one of the bills, the Lincoln County Conservation, Recreation and Development Act of 2004, could have a big impact on Las Vegas and surrounding counties. As always, this Western is all about water. The new law simplifies and accelerates the process of converting public domain into private land, but the ultimate aim is to shift the water from a lightly populated county to a booming one. Despite the bill's title, the law really benefits Clark County, home of Las Vegas, one of the fastest growing locales in the nation. INSET: Gimme That Land.
