WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV), a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, announced that Reno Roots Nursery, a home based nursery that specializes in growing and sourcing rare plants, has been chosen for her February Small Business Spotlight, a monthly initiative to highlight Nevada small businesses.
 
“Small businesses are the driving force behind Nevada’s economy,” said Senator Rosen. “During this challenging time, it is important that we shine a light on small businesses like the Reno Roots Nursery which has grown to be a part of our community. I will continue working to ensure that small businesses in our state have the resources they need to thrive.”
 
“We are proud to have opened this small business right here in our community,” said Nina Hees, owner of Reno Roots Nursery. “Since opening, we have been able to provide Nevadans with beautiful and unique plant life. We want to thank Senator Rosen for choosing to highlight our business, and for the work she’s doing to support Nevada’s small business community.”
 
BACKGROUND: In November, Senator Rosen announced that her office would be launching a Small Business Spotlight initiative to regularly highlight Nevada small businesses in order to help lift them up during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Nevadans can nominate small businesses to be highlighted here.
 
Senator Rosen’s office is working every day to ensure Nevadans stay up to date on the latest news on the coronavirus, as well as provide a list of resources to assist Nevadans.
 
Senator Rosen’s website includes a bilingual online resource portal to assist small businesses in Nevada affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Small businesses that are experiencing difficulties navigating federal assistance can also send their inquiries and questions to SmallBusiness@Rosen.Senate.gov, and a team of dedicated bilingual professionals will respond to provide assistance.
