LAS VEGAS, NV – March 11, 2021
Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement in response to President Joe Biden signing the American Rescue Plan:
“Today, President Joe Biden took bold and necessary action to sign the American Rescue Plan and bring much needed relief to the country, and to Nevada. This package will help bring back the American economy and provide much needed relief and assistance for hundreds of thousands of Nevada families.
This stimulus provides a strategy to help fund ongoing vaccination efforts and helps further mitigate the spread of COVID-19, while also providing immediate economic relief to the hardest hit communities across our State. With this legislation, we can beat the virus and continue our progress to safely reopen schools buildings and get our economy back on track.
I look forward to working with leaders across the State to help make sure as many Nevadans can benefit from this relief package as quickly as possible, while also developing a strategy to maximize these funds for long term benefits. I want to thank members of Nevada’s federal delegation who voted for this measure – Senators Cortez Masto and Rosen, Congresswoman Dina Titus, Congresswoman Susie Lee and Congressman Steven Horsford – for continuing to work tirelessly on behalf of all Nevadans.”
