The Black Rock and Sahwave ranges were not the only areas of controversy for the Fallon Naval Air Station. 6 million acres of land northeast of Fallon for a bombing and gunnery range. Interior's Grazing Service, forerunner of the Bureau of Land Management, objected to the size of the range because of impacts on the local ranching community. In response, the Navy trimmed its proposal to 700,000 acres in two ranges, one located in the Carson Sink north of Fallon and one located in the Clan Alpine Mountains east of Fallon.

Management of that land will become increasingly important in the years to come. Consequently, the magnitude of Department of Defense proposals for Nevada's land and air space during the 1980s was cause for considerable concern. These proposals were not instigated by local citizens. They have led to a perception that Nevadans have little say in decisions about military activities in their state. The proposals have caused much controversy and raised public demand for active involvement in the planning process for military ranges.

The Navy identified the continued need for the Sahwave Range but wanted to change the restrictions so that it could be used year-round. It asked the Bureau of Land Management if it could investigate the possibility of providing other areas for the ranchers that used the range. Navy officials requested that the investigation not be publicized because they were afraid of congressional repercussions. The BLM disagreed and issued press releases on the proposed total closure of the Sahwave Range with a request for public comment.
