Over the past 10 years, I have been involved in many mining related issues. I have met with senators and congressmen, who are also in support of the mining industry and together we are working to eradicate additional tax increases that would negatively affect the industry. I am strongly opposed to any increase in the net proceeds tax related to the mining industry in Nevada.
For many years, I have fought against the Hard Rock Mining Tax that many are trying to implement throughout the mining industry. We must stand united as a community and as a state, or mining will be taxed out of existence.
