Massive support for Nevada Bureau of Mines & Geology budget battle

In response to a proposed 47% cut to its $2.1 million budget, the Nevada Bureau of Mines & Geology is making its case to university and state decision-makers, its stakeholders, and the Nevada citizenry. The NBMG web page offers a factsheet and a massive report on the impacts of the cut on the Bureau and the state of Nevada. The report extensively describes the breadth of NBMG work but has an astonishing 200+ pages of letters and messages from industry, professional organizations, government agencies, and academics from around the world, expressing their concerns of the potential harm the cuts will cause.
