WASHINGTON – President Obama today signed the Three Kids Mine Remediation and Reclamation Act. The bill provides an innovative public-private partnership solution to finally clean up the abandoned Three Kids Mine site in Henderson at no cost to federal taxpayers.

It is estimated that the cleanup and development of the Three Kids Mine site could create as many as 3,000 jobs over the life of the project.

"This new law will help get southern Nevada back to work," U.S. Rep. Joe Heck, a Republican representing Nevada’s Third District, said in a statement. "If Nevada's economy is going to continue improving, it will need room to grow. That is the long-term economic development opportunity this law provides the city of Henderson.

“Today is a perfect example of how the Nevada delegation can come together and advance issues important to our local communities.”

In a statement, U.S. Sen. Harry Reid says he has seen how the Three Kids Mine site has not only been an eyesore for Henderson’s residents, but also a danger.

The Senate Majority Leader said he has heard from his constituents on this issue and is glad that this new law will allow Henderson to clean up the site and develop the land for the city’s gain.
