Governor Sisolak’s Infrastructure Summit draws nearly 500 attendees for daylong discussions, collaborations

LAS VEGAS, NV – October 03, 2022

On Friday, Governor Sisolak and the State of Nevada hosted its first-ever Infrastructure Summit at the Las Vegas Convention Center, bringing together key stakeholders across the broad infrastructure industry to discuss how we can best allocate once-in-a-generation investments coming to Nevada through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Nearly 500 people attended the event.

"To date, Nevada has received nearly a billion dollars from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. These funds mean good-paying jobs, expansive health care, education, clean energy and equity across our state,” said Governor Sisolak. “We are committed to using these investments in the best, most efficient way possible to help the most Nevadans as we build a brighter future for future generations.”

The Summit kicked off with opening remarks from Governor Sisolak, U.S. Under Secretary of Transportation Carlos Monje, White House Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu and Las Vegas Raiders President Sandra Douglass Morgan, and Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen gave remarks to attendees mid-day in between breakout sessions and panels.

The Infrastructure Summit’s breakout sessions included conversations around the infrastructure investments impacting transportation, economic development, high-speed internet, workforce development and good-paying jobs, clean energy and water. These investments are highlighted on NevadaBuilds.com, recently launched by Governor Sisolak and the State of Nevada, detailing the single largest long-term investment into our country’s infrastructure and competitiveness in nearly a century.
