WASHINGTON, D.C. – During a U.S. Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee hearing this morning, U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) shared with U.S. Department of the Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin how Nevadans are already benefiting from the recently-signed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, historic tax relief legislation championed by Heller.

Specifically, Heller noted that because of tax reform, companies that employ Nevadans are now giving back to their workers, such as South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas, NV which recently pledged to double its 2,300 full-time workers’ bonuses and Wal-Mart, which announced it will be increasing wages, handing out bonuses, and expanding maternity and parental leave benefits for roughly 8,700 Nevadans. Heller also shared that tax reform is proving to help spur job creation as Fontainebleau’s developers said they will resume a stalled project, which is expected to create approximately 10,000 jobs.

In response to one of Heller’s questions, Mnuchin said that the average Nevada worker will see wage growth as a result of tax reform and pro-economic growth policies.

Heller, who hosted Mnuchin in Las Vegas, NV in August for a roundtable discussion with some of Nevada’s job creators, also thanked the Secretary for his work in helping Congress deliver tax relief to hardworking families and small business owners in Nevada and across the country.
