When the left hand of government does not know what the right hand is doing, sitcoms and tragedies are born. A new partnership between federal and state agencies aims to let both hands know what the other is doing.
The collaboration is called the Nevada Silver Jackets and is a meeting of agencies twice a year to talk about flood risk management.
On Nov. 8, federal and state agencies signed the charter for the Nevada Silver Jackets, codifying the relationship. By signing the charter, the groups agreed to sit down two times a year to network, learn and coordinate.
