The article reports that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) ended it freeze on acceptance of applications for solar thermal power plants sites on federal land, after Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid complained. A letter by Gibbons to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne noted that the BLM controls 67 percent of the land in Nevada. Gibbons cited the effect of the new solar application moratorium of BLM on their effort to develop Nevada's solar energy resources.
