Nye County, the second largest county in the United States, covers more than 18,000 square miles of land, making it larger than the states of New Hampshire and Vermont combined; and 93 percent of the County's 11.2 million acres is public land. The Settlement Agreement provides: "The United States recognizes that the State of Nevada and Nye County posses concurrent jurisdiction over the public lands within Nye County for such purposes as law enforcement and the protection of public health and safety in accordance with applicable federal law and regulations." The Agreement _00riefly Noted also states that: "The State of Nevada and Nye County submitted to the U.S. District Court, Attorney General recognize that the United States owns and has the authority Frankie Sue Del Papa stated that the law passed by the to manage and administer public lands within Nye county."
