I firmly believe that to turn around our economy, we must get Nevadans back to work.

That is why this year, I spearheaded a jobs bill to create 8000 new Nevada jobs by funding road construction projects. Last session, I also supported incentives for renewable energy projects that create Nevada jobs.

Because we also need to look at jobs for the future and economic diversification, I have also been chairing a special legislative committee looking at ways to help make Nevada a manufacturing, distribution and transportation hub for the Western United States. That committee is making recommendations to the 2011 Legislature.

I also know that a well-educated workforce is the key to diversified growth and Nevada's economic recovery. That's why education is such a priority for me, and why I am a strong advocate for improving career and technical education opportunities.
