Nevada has a long history of supporting our national security, and Catherine has helped lead efforts to protect the men and women serving our nation overseas. She helped pass two of the largest pay raises for service members in a decade, and works every year to make sure our Nevada military bases get the federal support they need.
For nearly 10 long years, veterans waited as senators from both parties tried and failed to get a veterans cemetery built in Elko — then Nevadans elected Catherine, and she delivered. Catherine worked with both parties and Nevada veterans to secure a deal with the VA to build the cemetery. When it comes to helping veterans, Catherine doesn’t take no for an answer.
Catherine has passed multiple bills to help veterans by extending benefits to our heroes harmed by Agent Orange, promoting critical treatments for veterans struggling with mental illnesses, and significantly overhauling U.S. military housing.
