in 2017/Top Headlines by

Jeb Bush is visiting Reno later this week to unveil a plan for managing Western lands and resources.

The Republican presidential candidate is set to hold a roundtable discussion at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

Public lands are a hot topic in Nevada, where the federal government manages more than 80 percent of land within the state’s borders.

Bush will head to southern Nevada later in the day for a 6 p.m. forum hosted by the LIBRE Initiative. The event at the College of Southern Nevada Cheyenne Campus in North Las Vegas is part of a speaker series that has so far featured Republican candidates Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.

The LIBRE Initiative seeks to advance libertarian principles among Hispanic voters.
