High Country News;8/3/2009, Vol. 41 Issue 13, p3
The article presents the stance by Senator Harry Reid on the environmental issues and the criticisms given to him by the people in Nevada. Reid has received negative feedbacks from a professional environmentalist and his colleagues regarding his anti-green position and for blocking the reform of the mining law, as well as from the Nevadans who viewed him unfavorably. However, the League of Conservation Voters defended that Reid has also voted 75% of the key environmental bills.
