Agriculture Secretary Meets with Business Leaders

 

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack met with a handful of Las Vegas-area business leaders Tuesday to push President Obama’s jobs plan.

The secretary held a White House Business Council Roundtable at the East Las Vegas Community Center. Vilsack encouraged the business leaders to apply for a federal loan to build and operate a waste recycling plant. The plant would produce biofuel for the Navy. He says there are a few plants that will be built and one in Nevada would help create jobs.
