                    The Committee on Natural Resources, to whom was referred the
                  bill (H.R. 2374) to facilitate certain pinyon-juniper related projects
                  in Lincoln County, Nevada, to modify the boundaries of certain wil-
                  derness areas in the State of Nevada, and to fully implement the
                  White Pine County Conservation, Recreation, and Development
                  Act, having considered the same, report favorably thereon without
                  amendment and recommend that the bill do pass.

                                       PURPOSE OF THE BILL
                    The purpose of H.R. 2374 is to facilitate certain pinyon-juniper
                  related projects in Lincoln County, Nevada, to modify the bound-
                  aries of certain wilderness areas in the State of Nevada, and to
                  fully implement the White Pine County Conservation, Recreation,
                  and Development Act.
                              BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                    H.R. 2374 authorizes hazardous fuel reduction projects and wild-
                  fire planning for rangeland and woodland restoration projects in
                  Lincoln County, Nevada; reduces the size of three wilderness areas;
                  and provides for the development and implementation of a Virgin
                  River, Nevada, conservation plan.
                    The bill makes a technical correction to help implement a mul-
