Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval is playing host to nine other Western states’ governors and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to try to reach a consensus on region-wide issues such as drought.
Sandoval chairs the Western Governors’ Association, which is holding its annual meeting in Lake Tahoe from Wednesday to Friday.
The governors will tackle a number of topics throughout the three days, including a newly released report detailing best practices for states to mitigate the effects of drought.
Jewell is scheduled to give a keynote speech and take questions from the governors Wednesday.
Sandoval will be joined by governors from Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, North Dakota, Alaska and Guam.
