Sinema Statement on JUSTICE Act Vote

Jun 24, 2020

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema released the following statement:
“This moment in our history is too important for political games. Passing legislation to reform policing and save lives requires a genuinely bipartisan approach.  A process without bipartisan negotiations from the start will not pass the Senate, and risks further dividing Americans instead of bringing us together. Elected leaders in both parties must put down the heavy burden of partisanship and work together to heal our country and deliver on the promise of a more perfect union. Today’s vote must be the beginning, not the end, of this process; I remain committed to getting things done, and will continue working with my friends on both sides of the aisle to address systemic racism, strengthen and protect our communities, and hold accountable bad actors in law enforcement who make it harder for good police officers to do their jobs safely.”
