When we talk about Congress passing our bill, HR-433, it is big to us. In 2012, the census report showed that just over 3,000 people live in Yerington, Nevada.
The bill we are urging Congress to pass would jumpstart a billion dollar copper mine just outside of Yerington, NV. The mine would create millions in tax revenue and over 1,000 high paying, local jobs.
It’s hard to know what the unemployment rate of Lyon County really is, but it is easy to see that 1,000 extra high-paying jobs (an average $86,000 per year) would do great things for our community and our state.
