(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Governor Brian Sandoval says Nevada is on the right track for economic recovery, but he says the Silver State needs to be more aggressive in luring new businesses.

Sandoval told a conservative business group yesterday that the state has created 10,000 new jobs since he became governor in 2001, and sales tax and gaming revenues are on the rise.  But he warned Nevada’s Medicaid costs will go up if the federal health care reform act is upheld.  Sandoval has proposed extending over 600-million-dollars in tax hikes for two more years.
