CARSON CITY, Nev. — In Nevada's ongoing struggle to protect the sage grouse without federal intervention, the state has selected a team of five people to champion the bird's cause. Federal action could come with devastating side effects statewide, officials fear.

The five-member Sagebrush Ecosystem Technical Team was formed to implement the state's plan and will meet for the first time Feb. 21. Multiple state agencies and the Sagebrush Ecosystem Council, established by Gov. Brian Sandoval earlier this year, will guide the team along the way. The state hasn't released the names of the team's members, and likely won't do so until some time next week.
