Combating Drought and Wildfires

As a lifelong Nevadan, Catherine has seen our state’s challenges with drought and wildfires get worse and worse, and she has led efforts to help Nevada fight back. She passed bipartisan legislation to address the wildfires blanketing our state in smoke and threatening Nevada communities and jobs, helping deliver a historic $3.4 billion to prevent and combat wildfires. She secured critical support for our heroic firefighters, including a pay raise and funds to hire additional firefighters, so they have the resources they need. 

Catherine delivered bipartisan legislation to protect Nevada’s water supply. She secured $450 million for large-scale water recycling, funding a local project that will produce enough water to serve more than 500,000 households in the region.
