Heller on December jobless rate: 'Welcome news...but far too many still struggling'

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., reacting to today's state report that Nevada's unemployment rate fell to 12.6 percent in December, said this in a statement:

"News that Nevada's unemployment numbers have improved is welcome news. The fact remains that far too many Nevadans are still struggling to stay in their homes, find good paying jobs and provide a better future for their children. Washington needs to get serious about passing policies that make a difference Nevadans can feel. By reforming the tax code, reducing government spending, and decreasing burdensome regulations, Washington can help create the long-term economic recovery Nevadans deserve."
