Economy and Jobs
Job creation and turning our economy around is my top priority in Congress. As a former small business owner, I know what it takes to run a business, make a payroll and create jobs. Since coming to Congress, I have focused on introducing and supporting legislation that will create an environment that allows the private sector to thrive and create jobs. While there have been positive economic signs lately, we cannot turn our attention away from this critical issue.
A bill I introduced called the Three Kids Mine Remediation and Reclamation Act recently passed the House of Representatives. This bill would create local jobs through the clean up and redevelopment of the dangerous, abandoned Three Kids Mine Site in Henderson. I urged my colleagues to support this bill in a speech on the House floor. Click the image below to watch the video.
