Building Jobs Coalition
1 : 00 p.m., Wednesday, February 9, 2011
Room 2134 – 2nd Floor, Legislative Building , Carson City
Senate Select Committee on Economic Growth and Employment
The Building Jobs Coalition will present their report on creating jobs for the nearly 200,000 Nevadans who are currently unemployed, next Wednesday, February 9.
The report includes a number of specific proposals, which would generate more than 25,000 jobs over the next eighteen months. Coalition spokesmen Jeremy Aguero and Steve Holloway will outline the proposals and answer questions for members of the committee.
Several hundred individuals are needed to attend this public hearing!! We must stress the importance of restoring Nevada ’s vigorous economic growth.
Several dozen employees of AGC members have already expressed a willingness to attend. We need to have some representation from the Architecture/Design/Engineering Profession as well!
Those attending are encouraged to join us from 11 : 30 a.m. – 12 : 30 for pizza and soft drinks at the High Sierra Brewery at 302 South Carson Street , one block north of the legislative building. At approximately 12 : 40 or 12 : 45 we will join others attending the hearing and walk across the street to gather at the legislative building.
AGC will charter a bus to transport those individuals without transportation to and from Carson City to allow them to attend the hearing. Those wishing to be transported on the bus will need to give us their name and the AGC member company that they had most recently worked for. We must have at least 38 people signed up to charter the bus.
Please let us know how many individuals will attend by e-mailing back to the AGC Office or calling 329-6116 by noon, Friday, February 4, 2011.
Turning out several hundred individuals impacted by the reduction of work hours or the loss of their jobs is necessary. This will help legislators understand the importance of making job generation a top priority in the 2011 legislative session.
