WASHINGTON – Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly announced nearly $125,887,493 in federal investments they secured for Arizona priorities and projects that include supporting local law enforcement, flood control, western rural water, “forever chemicals” removal, military installations, transportation, and more.

“I’m proud to bring these federal investments to Arizona – supporting projects and priorities for our counties, cities, and towns for safer and healthier communities,” said Sinema, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
“After months of work with mayors, law enforcement, and community leaders, I’m proud to announce these important investments in communities across Arizona,” said Kelly. “From upgrading roads and water infrastructure to giving law enforcement and firefighters the tools they need to keep communities safe, these investments will make sure we remain the best state to live, work, and raise a family.”

These federal investments for Arizona will support projects at the county, city, and local levels to enhance safety, security, and health of Arizona communities.
