Since being elected in 2018, Zach has worked to establish himself and his Office as a trusted source of innovation in government.
Strengthening the Economy
In his first year as Treasurer, Nevada has received two bond rating increases, the first since 2006; generated the highest investment returns for the State since the recession of 2008; and returned the largest amount of unclaimed property back to Nevadans since the inception of the State’s Unclaimed Property Program.
College Access and Affordability
Zach is also committed to ensuring that every Nevadan has the opportunity to plan, save, and pay for post-secondary education. He worked to establish College Savings Navigator Initiative, modeled after the Affordable Care Act, which is helping underserved communities navigate and understand their options for pursuing higher education affordably.
Zach is also launching a first-in-the-nation pilot program to help bank the State’s legal marijuana industry. As the federal prohibition over marijuana has left small businesses and their employees under banked, Zach has stepped up to find innovative ways to increase public safety, while allowing the industry to grow and thrive.
