Nevada Small Business Owners Support ‘All-of-the-Above’ Energy Policy that Protects Public Lands

Published: July 11, 2012

Small businesses are the lifeblood of our nation’s workforce. We depend on them to keep local communities and economies thriving, which in turn boosts our national economy. But in the current fiscal climate, many of them are having a hard time turning a profit. Now is a better time than ever to help them get back on their feet, and scientific opinion polling reveals small business owners in Nevada believe protecting their region’s natural assets is one way we can enhance the financial success of small businesses and local economies. Furthermore, a sizable majority of them find the president’s ‘all-of-the-above’ energy development strategy appealing but would be even more supportive if it ensures protection of those public lands.

Conclusion

Nevada small business owners, like many others across the nation, have been hit hard by the recession. However, they are expressing optimism about the future, and as they work to grow their businesses and bolster local economies, they need the support of small business-friendly, balanced energy policies—such as an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy approach that includes provisions to protect public lands. According to job creators across an array of industries, it’s good for business: poll results reveal the important role public lands play in close to half of entrepreneurs’ decisions to open businesses in Nevada. It’s evident small business owners have seen firsthand that protecting these spaces can attract business. Small employers are the backbone of our economy and now is as good a time as any to help them, considering the current economic climate. Whether Nevada entrepreneurs are flourishing or working to get back on their feet, it’s important to ensure new energy policies preserve what makes their state’s communities and businesses unique and desirable—public lands.
