The Vegas Chamber is issuing a statement on the passing of United States Senator Harry Reid:

“Senator Harry Reid defined the term “Battle Born”.  His life story is legendary.  His dedication to Nevadans through his many roles in public service elevated the quality of life for many in our state, and also laid a strong foundation for the future.  The Vegas Chamber is proud to have worked with him on many public policy initiatives, especially Interstate 11, the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, and preventing the storage of nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain.  Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife, Landra, and the entire Reid family, as well as to the many staff members who were devoted to helping him serve Nevada.”
