“As our state works to safely rebound from the coronavirus pandemic, we must do everything we can to protect our children and their mental health development so that they can successfully cope and recover during this challenging time,” said the Senators. “We also are working to ensure that our critical industries in Nevada, and the jobs they support, have access to the resources they need to make it through this crisis and help revitalize the economy in the nation’s recovery. The clean energy sector not only helps us address the climate crisis, it also provides thousands of jobs for Nevada workers. We’ll continue fighting for Nevada in the Senate.”
