Panaca, Nev. – Today, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) met with City of Caliente officials and later visited the Caliente Youth Center, a community-based facility north of Las Vegas, where she discussed the center’s programs dedicated to the education and recovery of young Nevadans in the juvenile justice system. She also viewed the Panaca electric vehicle charging station and discussed her recent introduction of cleaner vehicle legislation in the Senate to strengthen Nevada’s electric vehicle industry.
“I was pleased to meet with Caliente officials today to discuss how my work on the federal level can empower rural communities and boost economic growth. I also had the privilege of touring the Caliente Youth Center, a local facility focused on assisting at-risk youth. I’m thankful to everyone at the Caliente Youth Center for their dedication to helping young Nevadans and setting them on a path for success. As part of my visit to Lincoln County, I was also pleased to see the Panaca electric charging station and the critical work our rural communities are doing to support electric vehicle production that boosts local economies and helps us realize our potential as the Innovation State.”
