JOBS AND THE ECONOMY
Melanie wants to make sure that all Nevadans have the ability to find good-paying jobs. That’s why she will fight to recruit more businesses to our state and work to diversify Nevada’s economy. While tourism has been the economic driver in our state for many years, Melanie believes it’s important that we not rely solely on one industry to drive the state’s economy and job market.
Melanie wants Nevada to become a leader in the clean and renewable energy market. She will fight for Nevada to invest in wind, solar, and geothermal. Melanie supports increasing Nevada’s Renewable Portfolio Standard to help boost renewable energy jobs in the state.
Melanie also wants to make sure that we are helping our small businesses be successful, not just big companies. She supports giving grants and incentives to help new small businesses get off the ground and help existing small businesses expand.
