Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) issued the following statement following President Joe Biden’s speech on the eve of his 100th day in office.
“Over the past 100 days, our nation has made tremendous progress, coming together to deliver a historic rescue package that is helping bring American communities back from a devastating year. Back at home, I have seen firsthand how the American Rescue Plan is getting shots in arms, students back in the classroom, and Nevadans back to work, paving the way for a real economic recovery. Our focus must remain on getting past this pandemic, but the work won’t stop there. We need to invest in our workforce and small businesses, we need to make sure Nevadans can get good-paying jobs, and we need to make it easier for Nevada’s working families to get ahead and give their children the support they deserve. I appreciated the President’s focus on empowering American workers and lifting up our students and their families, and I look forward to working together to create a brighter future for Nevada and our nation.”
