Nevada Approves Economic Development Applications Worth $119 Million
“I am very excited by the sustained economic momentum of Nevada’s economy,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “In May of 2018, claims for unemployment insurance were the lowest in nearly 20 years. I am grateful for the all employers who continue to bet on the future of our state and I am particularly pleased to see the investments being made in rural counties this GOED board meeting.”
“From urban to rural areas, from increased workforce participation to higher wages, Nevada’s economic growth has a real human impact, which is being felt in communities across the state,” said GOED Executive Director Paul Anderson.
