DAILY BURGER em o,s weome Ensign claims victory for southern Nevada transportation by Geoff Kreis PVG Staff Transportation concerns are important to Nevada resi- dents. Congressman John Ensign announced last week that help is on its way as a final congressional agreement was approved sending $20 million to southern Nevada. The Fiscal 1998 Transportation Appropriations Bill will fund the state' s projects which include a $2 million appropria- tion for Zinc Air Battery research at the Nevada Test Site (NTS). The Zinc Air Battery system is an alternative to fossil fuel and will primarily be used to power electric vehicles. The battery, if operational, could increase a car's performance and lower fueling costs. In a demonstration using a bus, the battery lasted for 200 miles in city traffic, offered superior climbing and cruising power, costs equal to gas prices, convenient refueling with 10 minute battery exchanges and safe and environmentally friendly operation. The zinc battery project is being conducted through a partnership with the Electric Fuel Corporation Ltd. and the Center for Sustainable Technology, which is associated with Bechtel National. The recent opening of the NTS to certain commercial organizations has given the project a suitable home for current testing. Other projects included $5 million for a monorail system in Las Vegas that will run between Cashman Field and the Las Vegas Convention Center, $5 million for a new air traffic control tower at the North Las Vegas Airport and $8 million for the Clark County Regional Transportation Commission to buy new CAT buses. "These projects are designed to improve the quality (of transportation) in l_as Vegas and I'm confident they will do just that," Ensign said. "It's always gratifying to fight so hard for something and then see it through." The CAT bus purchase was reduced by $500,000 from its original proposal and Ensign said he was disappointed. Ensign said that even though the cut came as the bill moved through the Senate Appropriations Committee, the agree- ment is a big victory for southern Nevada. "Let's keep this in mind that we're doing more than throwing money at our needs," Ensign said. "These are quality projects that will make real improvements."
