Protecting Our Environment and Combating Climate Change

Catherine has been a champion for renewable energy, leading the fight for a solar tax credit that helps tackle climate change and create Nevada jobs. She also passed key provisions in the bipartisan infrastructure bill to help combat climate change by promoting electric vehicle development. 

She has been steadfast in protecting Nevada’s public lands and natural resources. When the Trump administration wanted to dump nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, she blocked them repeatedly, and she’s leading legislation to make sure the failed Yucca Mountain project is never revisited again. She’s worked to protect the pristine Ruby Mountains from speculative drilling and to strengthen our $4 billion outdoor economy that supports 50,000 jobs in the state. She also worked with Nevada Republicans to prevent homes and businesses from flooding in the Truckee Meadows.
