Bipartisan Jobs Measure Will Help Boulder City Residents

We have an urgent need to put Nevadans back to work. Most of the ideas we’ve talked about in recent weeks, like the American Jobs Act, have been supported on a bipartisan basis in the past, and it will take a bipartisan effort to seriously address the jobs deficit we face in Nevada.

Many common-sense solutions are on the table and would get our economy moving again by spurring hiring in the private sector. In fact, one way we can help middle class Nevadans is to extend and expand the payroll tax cuts, which would keep $1,500 in the pockets of the average Boulder City family.

I believe we can put Nevadans back to work by making it easier for Boulder City’s small businesses to create jobs and by building, renovating and modernizing our schools, bridges and roads. One example of this is the much-needed Boulder City bypass, for which I recently secured $2 million to allow this project to move forward.

Additionally, we must ensure that veterans returning to Nevada are able to find employment. Every Memorial Day for the past few years, I’ve attended a ceremony at Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City, where we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice protecting our country. It’s also been an opportunity for me to meet Nevada veterans and listen to their concerns, such as transitioning to civilian life. It’s unacceptable for these brave men and women to struggle to find employment, which is why I will work to pass legislation that helps our veterans find a job when they return home.

Our veterans and middle class families are struggling, which is why Boulder City residents and Nevadans across the state reject the partisan bickering that prevents Congressional action to create jobs. It’s time to put jobs and the economy ahead of partisan politics.
