Governor Sisolak: “The State of the State is determined, resilient, and strong”

CARSON CITY, NV – January 19, 2021

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak delivered his second State of the State address to Nevadans. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Governor’s address was pre-recorded and aired on the Governor’s YouTube page and carried on stations throughout Nevada.

“Nevadans are battle born. We face our challenges head on,” Gov. Sisolak said. “And we will get through this difficult time together, because the State of our State is determined, resilient, and strong.”

In addition to laying out a vision to chart a path forward, the Governor also announced an additional $50 million in his budget for a small business emergency grant program, run by the Nevada Treasurer’s Office and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. The Governor’s announcement doubles the current commitment to the program.

“This funding has helped small businesses keep their doors open and their employees paid throughout these difficult times,” Gov. Sisolak said.
