As quoted in the press release:
Based on on-going discussions with our Washington, DC representation, we know that that the Nevada Senators and Congressmen remain committed to passage of the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act (“the Bill”) in 2014. They have advised Nevada Copper, as well as Lyon County and the City of Yerington, that this bill remains one of their top priorities and that they are working very hard to complete the final procedural steps in the House and the Senate to get the bills passed.
