From CA Congressman Tom McClintock newsletter:
The Lake Tahoe Restoration Act of 2015 (H.R. 3382) was approved by the House Natural Resources Committee on October 8th. The bill is authored by Congressman McClintock and Congressman Mark Amodei of Nevada. The legislation focuses resources on fire prevention and additional measures to protect the lake from the introduction of invasive species.
“The House measure is specifically designed — after extensive input from fire districts throughout the Tahoe region — to reduce excess fuel loads in the Tahoe Basin before they burn. It streamlines the planning process that has severely hampered past attempts at forest management,” remarked Congressman McClintock. “It calls for new revenues generated within the Tahoe Basin to stay in the Tahoe Basin for environmental improvements. It also augments efforts to protect the lake from invasive species that have already devastated many other lakes in the West.”
“For the last eight years, Tahoe legislation has been introduced in the Senate and has not moved off the Senate floor,” continued Congressman McClintock. “This bill has been carefully crafted to fit within the budget parameters set by Congress and it addresses the two most immediate environmental threats to the Tahoe Basin. I believe this bill has an excellent prospect for passage out of the House.”
— Expedites active forest management and fuel reduction projects consistent with the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit land and resource management plan.
— Guarantees that funds generated by timber sales and recreation will stay in the Tahoe Basin to provide for further fuels management and promote public access.
— Supplements and expands the current inspection regimen of boats launched into Lake Tahoe and provides for fee-supported private, local, and state inspection and decontamination stations.
— Provides for disposition of federal-owned parcels of land in urban areas and acquisition of in-fill parcels within the national forest to streamline management and reduce the inefficient “checkerboard” pattern.
— Makes the involvement of local governments mandatory in land acquisition decisions that directly impact their communities.
— Promotes tourism by prioritizing public access to federal lands.

The 9 Essentials to Sheltering in Place
When it comes to emergencies there’s items that are necessities and there’s items that are luxuries.Generally speaking you want to tackle the necessities first and then add additional items to increase the comfort level of the situation.
Here are 9 essentials you should have during a sheltering in place scenario, (keep in mind that you may be required to shelter in place somewhere besides your own home):
1.Water– Plan on 1 Gallon per person, per day for drinking and sanitation.Our water storage category includes items like Datrex Water Pouches and 5-Gallon Water Containers that can help you with your water needs.
2.Food – A supply of 3-5 days per person.For a lot of people the first couple of days can be supplemented by what’s already in the house.However, to insure that you always have your emergency food supply ready to go I recommend one of our 3-21 Day Food Supplies.
3.Clothes – In your 72-Hour Kit you want to be sure you have an extra pair of clothes and shoes for each person in your group/family.
4.Medications – It’s a good practice to collect 3-5 days worth of any prescription medications that you’re taking.Also be sure to note expiration dates so that you can rotate them appropriately.
5.Flashlight -When it comes to flashlights, don’t go cheap.There are good flashlights out their that are very affordable.Here’s some great options: Ultra-Bright 3-LED Dynamo Flashlight, 12-LED StreamLine Flashlight, or the ULTIMATE Dynamo Solar Powered Survival Radio.
6.Can Opener – This is another item that you want to be sure is high quality.There’s nothing worse than a can opener that won’t open cans.
7.Radio – The ideal option for a radio is one that has multiple options for powering the radio including, batteries, hand-crank, AC/DC, and/or
solar.The ULTIMATE Dynamo Solar Powered Survival Radio is a great option for this.
8.Hygiene Kit -Start with just the basics, soap, toilet paper and a toothbrush is enough to get most people by for 3-5 days.
9.First Aid Kit – Again, from a starting point perspective make sure that your first-aid kit at lest includes, antiseptic, gloves, bandages and your non-prescription medicine such as aspirin or Tylenol.
Put these 9 essential items in place and you’ve got a good foundation for a sheltering in place emergency kit!
