where-we-could-bePassage of the Northern Nevada Economic Development and Land Conservation Act (H.R. 5205) will have a huge economic impact on Lyon County and Yerington because it will jumpstart the Stage 2 open phase of the Pumpkin Hollow Project, a $1 billion capital investment that will create 500-1,000 construction jobs and 950 direct, permanent jobs. Combined, the Stage 1 underground mine (currently under construction) and Stage 2 open pit mine will create approximately 1,400 direct permanent jobs and over 3,000 total direct and indirect jobs.

This bill is really a JOBS BILL!

On September 15th, the bill was passed unanimously by the House. We are now awaiting Senate approval and a signature from the President. We have approximately 20 days to see the bill passed by the 113th Congress.

Steven Horsford Extra Mile Stories  Yerington   YouTubeSteven Horsford went the extra mile for Yerington and passed an economic development bill that will create thousands of jobs in Nevada.

Horsford has been instrumental in getting the Northern Nevada Economic Development and Conservation Act to Congress where it passed unanimously in the House on Sept. 15th, 2014.

Passage of the bill will jumpstart Pumpkin Hollow, bringing over 1000 high-paying jobs to Lyon County. It will also stimulate the economic flow of mining and construction vendors both locally and nationally.

We now have just under 1 month to have it approved by the Senate and sent to the President to sign.
