LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — There's a new bill in Congress aimed at getting furloughed casino, convention and hotel workers in Las Vegas back on the job.

Southern Nevada Congressman Steven Horsford is introducing the Hospitality and Commerce Job Recovery Act.

The bill establishes tax credits for travel to any trade show or convention across the country for the next 2 years.

The bill also aims to create tax credits for restaurant owners.

It would give breaks on the costs associated with having to bring any restaurant into compliance with COVID-19 protocols.

Horsford says the bill is receiving bipartisan support.
