Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) issued the following statement on the passing of Sheldon Adelson, founder, chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation.
“Sheldon Adelson’s vison helped transform Las Vegas from a small desert city into a world-class tourism destination. The Silver State’s massive business, entertainment, and convention industries are what they are today because of his life’s work and his dedication to building a Las Vegas that can cater to everyone from entrepreneurs to international travelers. My thoughts are with his family during this time.”
