Nevadans to Trump Administration: Where’s my Money?

In response to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao’s appearances in Las Vegas today, Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement:

“Just days before the 2016 election, Donald Trump came to Las Vegas promising funding for our roads, bridges, and highways, including Interstate 11. After three years of broken promises, Nevadans are still asking one question: where’s our money?”
