In 2013, the Nevada Legislature passed Assembly Bill 227, creating a Nevada Land Management Task Force to write a report regarding transfer of Federally-held public lands to the State of Nevada. The Task Force issued its report in July 2014. The report found that the Federal government had failed to convey lands to the State of Nevada upon statehood as it has, to date, with 38 other states. The report recommended conveyance of public lands held by the Federal government to the State of Nevada giving rise to H.R. 1484 "Honor the Nevada Enabling Act of 1864 Act".
