Today U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) announced that he will join Congresswoman Shelley Berkley (D-NV) and introduce legislation that will permanently eliminate a "blacklist" of American cities like Las Vegas and Reno from hosting federal agency and executive branch conferences and conventions.
"Despite our differing views on the bailouts for Wall Street and Detroit, Obamacare, and stimulus spending that has left many Nevadans out of work, I am pleased to join Congresswoman Berkley in the effort to end the blacklist process by the federal government. Nevada offers the best hospitality and convention services in the world, and Las Vegas, Henderson, Lake Tahoe, and Reno have long been favorite destinations for millions of visitors. I have always taken pride in the Nevada delegation working together on Nevada issues, and plan to introduce legislation in the near future," said Senator Dean Heller.
