Heller Responds to Nevada Unemployment Numbers

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) issued the following statement regarding the Nevada unemployment figures released earlier today:

"As Nevada continues to climb out of this recession, never has it been more important that Washington enact policies that will spur growth and ignite our economy. Congress has waited more than 1,350 days to pass a budget, which has caused uncertainty among businesses and families and made it difficult for Nevadans to move forward. I remain committed to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in order to make drastic changes to the budget process and help secure a stronger future for the Silver State," said Senator Dean Heller.

In December, Nevada's unemployment rate decreased from 10.8 percent to 10.2 percent. The unemployment rate in Las Vegas decreased to 10 percent. The rate in the Reno-Sparks areas decreased to 9.6 percent. Carson City's unemployment rate decreased to 10.1 percent. Elko's unemployment rate decreased to 5.2 percent.
