Sinema Meets with Bullhead City Mayor, Discusses Lands Package and Job Creation   

Mar 7, 2019

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema today met with Mayor Tom Brady of Bullhead City and discussed the Bullhead City Land Exchange — a proposal successfully included in the recent Public Lands Package — that Sinema championed. They also discussed their work with local leaders to help create more job opportunities in Bullhead City. 
“After years of hard work, we successfully passed the Bullhead City Land Exchange Act in the Lands Package last month,” said Sinema. “The exchange brings new development to Bullhead City, and we’ll continue working with Mayor Brady and local leaders to identify opportunities to create jobs, grow our economy, and protect our public lands.”
The Black Mountain Range and Bullhead City Land Exchange Act was included in the Senate and House-passed Lands Package this year. The exchange allows Bullhead City to acquire up to 345 acres of federal land on or near the Colorado River, known as Section 12, currently owned by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, in exchange for 1,100 acres of property in the Black Mountain Range northeast of Bullhead City. Sinema was an original cosponsor of the bipartisan Black Mountain Range and Bullhead City Land Exchange Act of 2018 in the House.
