For Businesses

I recognize that the smallest businesses often face some of the biggest challenges, especially when it comes to getting loans, finding government contracts, and providing affordable health care to employees. I am fighting to protect small businesses in Southern Nevada because I know they are the key to our economy’s recovery. The following is a list of helpful resources for businesses, as well as a list of local resources for business owners in District One.
