Nevada is rich in renewable resources that remain underutilized. Our endless sunny days, expansive geothermal resources, and powerful wind capacity make the race to being the Nation's leader in renewable-energy production a race that is Nevada's to lose. Investing in a new green economy will not only ensure that we leave this State, and our planet, in a better shape than we found it, but it will put Nevadans back to work. While recent strides have been made, there is so much more we can do.
Once elected, I will work to enact legislation that will enable businesses currently engaged in energy development in our State do so better and more efficiently. I will also work to attract new businesses interested in our natural resources -- businesses that hire Nevadans and invest in our State. We can benefit from the energy-development industry, but we must first position ourselves for this benefit. I will work to do that.
