Week in Review As the 114th Congress begins, I look forward to serving the Senate’s majority. This will be a breath of much-needed fresh air in Washington. Under the new leadership, the Senate will focus on job creation, the economy, and working to help the American people. My focus will remain to serve the people of Nevada and act as your primary voice on Capitol Hill by using my committee assignments and new legislation as a means to further the interests of Nevadans. Having a seat on both the Senate Finance Committee and the Special Committee on Aging will allow me to strengthen and protect important programs to Nevadans like Medicare and Social Security. As the Senate seeks to pass transportation legislation in the new Congress, my seat on the Commerce, Science, & Transportation Committee will ensure top priorities for Nevada, such as Interstate 11, do not go unnoticed. As Nevadans recover from one of the worst housing market crashes in history, I remain committed to protecting your interests as a member of the Banking, Housing, & Urban Affairs Committee. With nearly 300,000 veterans living in the state, I will continue to fight for the rights of veterans to receive proper medical care and treatment while serving on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee. For more information, click here. In this first week of the new Congress, I reintroduced “No Budget, No Pay,” requiring members of Congress to pass a budget and all appropriations bills in order to receive pay. When Nevadans are trying to make the most and best use of their hard-earned dollars, Washington needs to do the same by taking responsibility to pass a basic budget. I am also pleased with the passage of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA) program in both the House and the Senate in this last week. As a co-author of legislation reauthorizing TRIA, I recognize the benefits for future commercial development in bringing a stable and reliable support system for industries in our state in the event of a terrorist attack. This program provides a crucial safeguard ensuring Nevada’s prosperity. In the 114th Congress, I will continue working hard to better our state and our country.
