Cortez Masto Statement on the State of the Union Address

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s State of the Union address:

“This evening, I was proud to attend President Biden’s first State of the Union address, where he laid out the challenges and opportunities facing the United States. We’ve made incredible progress combating the pandemic, getting Nevadans back to work, and supporting our infrastructure, but there is more to do. My focus in the Senate will continue to be on helping middle-class Nevadans by creating good-paying jobs, bringing down costs, and ensuring that families have access to affordable housing and health care.

“The president also spoke about Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the threat of Putin's aggression. I appreciate his leadership, and will continue to work with my colleagues in the Senate to ensure that the U.S. supports Ukraine and our NATO allies while holding Russia and Putin accountable for this reckless and devastating invasion.”
