LAS VEGAS, NV – On Sunday, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) held a roundtable discussion with members of Nevada’s Asian American and Pacific Islander community, following the grand opening of the newly expanded Asian Community Development Council Center in Las Vegas. Senator Rosen spoke on a range of issues and recent legislative actions she is taking in Washington, including increasing access to STEM education programs, calling for Congress to pass bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform, and defending the Affordable Care Act and it’s coverage protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions.

“Nevada’s AAPI community is part of the diverse fabric that makes up our state,” said Senator Rosen. “I’m glad to have this chance to meet with members of the community and speak on the actions I’m taking in Congress to address issues that affect everyday lives. I will continue working to build a dialogue with our state’s many communities to best represent the needs of Nevadans.”

“I’m pleased to see Senator Rosen taking action on the issues she spoke about in her maiden speech,” said Vida Lin, President and Founder of Asian Community Development Council. “Education, health care, and immigration reform are all issues that have a real impact on the people in our community. I look forward to working with Senator Rosen to find solutions to the challenges we face.”
