From the Associated Press:

(AP) — U.S. Sen. Dean Heller will host this year’s annual Tahoe Summit, being held at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline.

The Nevada Republican says the Aug. 13 forum will focus on investing in the future of Lake Tahoe through public-private partnerships.

Others expected to attend include Gov. Brian Sandoval; California Gov. Jerry Brown; Nevada Lt. Gov. Brian Kro­licki; and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Tom McClintock, both of Cali­fornia.

The Tahoe Summit has been held every year since 1997. Nevada Sen. Harry Reid helped organize the inaugural event that featured President Bill Clinton and brought international attention to the environmental challenges facing the lake, which straddles the Nevada-California line.

Reid’s office said the Senate majority leader will not attend this year’s forum.
