I was at a National Association of State Treasurers conference with state treasurers and many New Yorkers – including the State Treasurer of New York, who had offices and staff in the World Trade Center, as well as many Wall Street colleagues. My heart goes out to the family and friends of all who were killed in the attack, and I hope today’s news provides some comfort.

Nevadans have been at the front lines in support of the Global War on Terrorism, and on behalf of all Nevadans we are thankful for their bravery and the sacrifices they and their families have made to keep us safe and free.”
