Dear fellow Nevada business leader:
With our economy just beginning to recover, Nevada’s business community needs Harry Reid now more than ever. Senator Reid knows that one of his most important responsibilities as a US Senator is to leverage his leadership position on behalf of the state’s businessmen and women, who are key to getting our economy back on track and creating good paying Nevada jobs.
Especially during these difficult economic times, no one can do more to bolster Nevada businesses.
Senator Reid has leveraged his leadership position as Senate Majority Leader to put Nevada businesses first.
He secured tens of billions of dollars in tax relief in the last two years alone, which not only kept Nevadans in their jobs, but brought crucial new business development to the state.
Thanks to Senator Reid, Nevada is now poised to take advantage of its abundant natural resources like solar, wind, and geothermal to lead the nation in creating thousands of good paying clean energy jobs.
And he passed the Jobs Bill, the first piece of legislation in a larger jobs agenda that is helping Nevada business hire by providing targeted tax cuts.
What’s more, Senator Reid remains a tireless champion of the businesses that traditionally make up the backbone of Nevada’s economy. He goes to the mat every single day to protect and develop Nevada’s tourism, gaming, real estate and mining industries.
For example, he passed the Travel Promotion Act, legislation that is bringing thousands of new visitors to Nevada’s tourist destinations like Las Vegas and Reno, which will create 40,000 new jobs, more than 6,000 in Nevada, this year alone.
He stepped in to keep the largest construction project in the world - CityCenter - on track to protect more than 20,000 Nevada jobs.
And he passed the Economic Recovery Act, which included a debt cancellation provision to protect tens of thousands of Nevada jobs, including the 31,000 employees at Harrah’s.
As members of Nevada’s business community, we are proud to stand by Senator Harry Reid and we encourage you to do the same as a member of Nevada Businesses for Harry Reid.
