U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) released the following statement regarding the Nevada unemployment figures released earlier today:
"Any sign of economic recovery in Nevada is welcome news. Unfortunately, too many families across our state continue to feel the negative impacts of the current economy. Congress needs an economic policy that reforms the tax code, removes burdensome regulations, and focuses on a long-term energy strategy that will bring down gas prices. Job creators across the Silver State need certainty to hire and invest in their businesses. However, they are not getting the stability they need from Congress or this Administration. Many of the policies coming out of Washington are impeding real economic progress, and this has to change. Job creation continues to be my top priority and it will be until every Nevadan who wants a job has one," said Senator Dean Heller.
