Another of our priorities must be to restore our State's economy and put Nevadans back to work. With our staggering unemployment rate, it is clear that we must explore new and innovative ways to induce our current businesses to hire and to encourage additional businesses to choose Nevada as their home so that Nevadans can get back to work. I support incentives to accomplish both of these goals. I will bring small businesses to the table to make sure they are part of the decisions affecting them.
Most importantly, it is time we reinvest in our future. If Nevada is going to prosper once again, we need to ensure that Nevada's next generation has the education necessary to compete. Only in this way can we expect our current businesses to employ Nevadans. And only in this way can we expect businesses to relocate to, and invest in, our State; they must know that Nevada has a workforce that can fulfill their employment needs.
