$3.5M for cyberdefense against unprecedented threats
We have taken an international leadership role in the development of unmanned aerial systems, autonomous vehicles, and water technology through our economic development efforts. As our economy continues to grow and transform in new and unprecedented
ways, it is imperative that we guard against new and unprecedented threats.
In our country, there are now five battlefields in our never-ending fight for safety and security--land, sea, air, space and cyberspace.
I have allocated $3.5 million for the creation of Nevada's first cyberdefense center.
The cyberdefense center will help Nevada detect, prevent, and respond to cyber-attacks and stand ready to partner with local governments and the private sector to minimize cyber risks.

Project Neon: major new highway project
We will also work on Project Neon, a major new highway project that will meet the most critical transportation needs of Southern Nevada. Project Neon is perhaps the largest public works project in Nevada since the construction of Hoover Dam.
It will completely modernize the infrastructure of Southern Nevada's transportation grid and ensure that our commute is safer and more efficient for decades to come.

Drive investment in broadband technology
We must continue to drive investment in broadband technology that fast-tracks job growth and provides a platform for spurring innovation across our state. My budget includes $3 million to help residents of rural Nevada use broadband access to start and
grow businesses, or telecommute to anywhere in the world. These improved broadband connections will also allow the electronic exchange of health information between providers and hospitals to improve the quality of care.
