On Tuesday September 3rd, Congresswoman Susie Lee hosted a press conference along with Congresswoman Dina Titus and Congressman Horsford to underline policies and priorities for Nevada’s working families and economy. At the press conference Congresswoman Susie lee stated,
“Since my first day in Congress, I have prioritized southern Nevada’s working families. We need to champion common sense, concrete legislation because right now, too many Americans are working full-time, but still struggling to make ends meet. The cost of living keeps rising, health care and prescription drug costs are through the roof, and retirement funds and pensions are evaporating, all while wages are more or less stagnant for most Americans. Along with my colleagues, Reps. Titus and Horsford, we have helped pass smart, concrete legislation like the Raise the Wage Act, a repeal of the Cadillac tax, and both the SECURE Act and the Butch Lewis Act to secure retirement funds and pension plans for working families; So long as I represent Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, I refuse to stop fighting to get things done and pass policy to help southern Nevada’s workers and the economy thrive.”
