Round Table Discussion at Local 1977
EST Frank Hawk welcomed Nevada Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen along with Local leaders to discuss issues of Permit Reform. Permit Reform is a highly debated topic on Capitol Hill, this issue pertains to the fast-tracking of federally funded green energy projects in the state. These projects are a part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Infrastructure is critical in a public land state like Nevada, of which 85% is owned or controlled by federal entities. We look forward to the jobs that will ensure our Union Carpenters can work where they live, ensuring the future of our members jobs, wages, and benefits.
