Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) today released the following statement on the passing of Sheldon Adelson:

“As a prominent businessman, investor, and philanthropist, Sheldon Adelson has been a pillar in the Las Vegas community for decades. Born into a tough neighborhood in Boston, Sheldon grew up understanding the value of hard work and eventually built one of the world’s most successful enterprises. His investment in Nevada has created thousands of jobs and transformed our state into an international travel destination.

“Sheldon also understood the importance of giving back to his community in other ways as well. He and his wife Miriam have dedicated their lives to several philanthropic endeavors, including Jewish educational missions, medical research initiatives, and drug addiction treatment centers. Sheldon certainly lived a long and fruitful life, and I know he will be missed by many. I offer my most sincere condolences to Miriam and their entire family during this difficult time.”
