                                             PURPOSE
                    The purpose of S. 414 is to promote conservation, improve public
                  land management, and provide for sensible development in Per-
                  shing County, Nevada.
                                      BACKGROUND AND NEED
                    When work began on the transcontinental railroad in 1863, the
                  Federal government granted railroad companies with ownership of
                  every other square mile of land across the West, while retaining
                  ownership of the squares of land in between. The land grants al-
                  lowed railroad companies to pay for construction of the trans-
                  continental railroad by selling their sections. The resulting checker-
                  board land ownership pattern still stretches across the northern
                  portion of the State of Nevada in a broad band along the 1-80 west
                  corridor within Pershing County (County).
                    In Pershing County more than 75 percent (nearly 2.9 million
                  acres) of the land is owned by the United States and administered
                     89-010
