County Leadership Pleased with Resolution On Fallon Range Training Complex Modernization Effort

With the passage of the Defense Reauthorization Act this week in Washington, DC, Churchill County leadership is pleased to see the process come to a mutually beneficial conclusion for the nearly seven-year-long decision on the Navy range modernization effort that balances the Navy’s need to expand and modernize its ranges, while offsetting land losses to the local community in support of that training. 

“We are proud that when Churchill County’s future was challenged by the Navy’s proposed expansion, we stood together, worked together, and created an exciting plan for the future. Over time, Governors Sandoval and Sisolak, Congressman Amodei, Senator Cortez Masto, and Senator Rosen fought shoulder to shoulder with Churchill County to ensure the prosperous future we see for the County,” said Pete Olsen, Churchill County Commission Chair.  

 “When this bill becomes law, we will commence a new chapter focused on ensuring that Congressional intent translates into real world progress. Churchill County looks forward to continuing its strong relationship with the Navy in support of their important mission and partnering with Nevada’s Congressional delegation to ensure the Administration’s implementation accounts for the realities of day-to-day life in Northern Nevada,” Olsen concluded.

Churchill County Commissioners will receive a legislative update regarding the Defense Reauthorization Act at the December 21 commission meeting at 1:15 p.m. in Chambers, 155 N. Taylor Street in Fallon. As always, the public is invited to attend in person or view via live streaming. The link to live stream will be posted here: by December 15 at the end of the day.
