Week in Review First, thank you for subscribing to my E-newsletter, intended to keep all Nevadans up-to-date on what is going on in Washington, D.C. This week, the President gave his State of the Union Address. Out-of-control spending, a costly health care law, and a seemingly endless stream of red tape are wreaking havoc on Nevada’s families and small businesses. The Silver State has seen its share of difficulties over the past years and continuing down the same path only serves as an impediment to our needed comeback. Unfortunately, the President failed to offer a legitimate road map for job creation or for turning the economy around. The Senate’s new majority is certainly a breath of fresh air and our focus is to keep the priorities of hardworking taxpayers at the forefront. I’m excited about where Nevada can be in the years to come, but it’s time to turn the power back to the American people and unleash our nation’s entrepreneurs. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the year ahead, and I sincerely hope President Obama will join us in putting America’s economy back on track. I also attended a Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee hearing addressing the rules of the committee in the 114th Congress and pending legislation. I am dedicated to finishing off what I started in 2013, by implementing all the bills included in the VA Claims Backlog Working Group, as well as focusing specifically on the needs of Nevada's veterans. Here is a story from the Reno Gazette Journal from this week, highlighting my dedication to working with veterans and the Department of Veterans' Affairs. To watch my introduction at the hearing, click on the link to the right. A focus of mine in the last couple of weeks has been specifically on finances. I introduced legislation aimed at making state and local sales tax deductions permanent. I also attended my first Senate Committee on Finance hearing. During this hearing, focusing on jobs and a healthy economy, I addressed the economic situation in Nevada and offered solutions to give the nation a more competitive marketplace. To watch me speak at the hearing, click on the link to the right. This week, I was presented with many great opportunities to once again begin work to benefit the state. I look forward to taking further steps in coming weeks.

Week in Review

First, thank you for subscribing to my E-newsletter, intended to keep all Nevadans up-to-date on what is going on in Washington, D.C.

This week, the President gave his State of the Union Address.

Out-of-control spending, a costly health care law, and a seemingly endless stream of red tape are wreaking havoc on Nevada’s families and small businesses. The Silver State has seen its share of difficulties over the past years and continuing down the same path only serves as an impediment to our needed comeback. Unfortunately, the President failed to offer a legitimate road map for job creation or for turning the economy around.

The Senate’s new majority is certainly a breath of fresh air and our focus is to keep the priorities of hardworking taxpayers at the forefront.  I’m excited about where Nevada can be in the years to come, but it’s time to turn the power back to the American people and unleash our nation’s entrepreneurs. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the year ahead, and I sincerely hope President Obama will join us in putting America’s economy back on track.

I also attended a Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee hearing addressing the rules of the committee in the 114th Congress and pending legislation. I am dedicated to finishing off what I started in 2013, by implementing all the bills included in the VA Claims Backlog Working Group, as well as focusing specifically on the needs of Nevada's veterans.
