Nevada Senator Dean Heller visited Kimmie Candy Company after its CEO Joseph Dutra sent samples of candy to Nevada Representatives.
Dutra says he's honored to have Sen. Heller visit the small business, and says he wants elected leaders in officer who support companies like his.
"We need a government that pushes for small business, for business in general and we want the businessmen to feel like they're the kings of the world because they take the biggest risk trying to make a business work," says Dutra.
Senator Heller says he favors legislation that extends tax breaks for all Americans past the end of the year.
He says it would help small businesses like Dutra's create jobs.
"Let's take current rates and extend them another year so we give some certainty to this process so businesses like Joe can continue to move forward and know that they have some certainty in creating and producing the kind of jobs that we need here in Nevada," says Sen. Heller.
Democrats and the White House favor extending the tax breaks for the 98% of Americans, but letting them expire for the tops 2% of earners.
