Video Blog: Natural Resources Committee Jobs Watch - Rep. Amodei
Amodei: Cutting-edge technology has made mining cleaner, safer and more environmentally responsible.

WASHINGTON, D.C., November 14, 2011 - House Natural Resources Committee Republicans are committed to putting Americans back to work by enacting policies that embrace America’s abundant natural resources to help create jobs and grow our economy.

The Committee continues its Job Watch series this week with Freshman Committee Member Rep. Mark Amodei (NV-02). He represents the third largest district based on land area in the nation. The district is abundant in natural resources and contains nearly 80% of all gold in the United States. Nevada’s second congressional district has a long history of mineral and metal mining, which directly influences economic growth and job creation for Nevadans.
