🌟 Update from NUCA Las Vegas on the Hill! 🌟

NUCA of Las Vegas recently had the incredible opportunity to engage with key representatives on Capitol Hill, advocating for crucial issues impacting our industry and community. Here’s a glimpse of our productive discussions:

🚰 Fully Funding Water Infrastructure Programs: We emphasized the urgent need to fully fund water infrastructure programs outlined in the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act. Adequate funding is vital for upgrading and maintaining our nation’s water systems, ensuring public health and economic stability.

💧 Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) Programs: Highlighting the critical role of SRF programs in providing low-cost financing for water infrastructure projects, we stressed the importance of ensuring access to clean and safe drinking water for all communities.

🎓 Expanding Pell Grants for Short-Term Credential Training Programs: Advocating for the passage of the Bipartisan Workforce Pell Act, we underscored the significance of expanding Pell Grants to cover short-term credential training programs. This expansion is essential for addressing the skills gap in our workforce and fostering career opportunities in our industry.

These discussions were a significant step forward in securing vital support and resources for our projects and workforce. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Sen. Jacky Rosen, Congressman Amodei, Rep. Susie Lee, Congressman Steven Horsford, Congresswoman Dina Titus, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, and their dedicated staff for their valuable time and attention.

The 2024 Summit photos can be viewed at our online photo website at nuca.smugmug.com. Capitol Hill for the 2025 Washington Summit, tentatively scheduled for May 13-15, 2025.

A special thank you goes out to our outstanding NUCA Las Vegas Board Members – Tyler Byrd, Kurt Brna, Harold Lefler, and Jeff Falcon our Chapter ED, Herminia Jones – for their exemplary commitment and representation.

Together, we’re driving positive change and shaping a brighter future for our industry and community.
