Senator highlighted how record investments she’s delivered to the state give everyday families and businesses the opportunities and freedom to thrive

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema highlighted how the investments she’s delivered to Arizona create economic opportunities allowing families and businesses to thrive during a fireside chat with the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. 

Through the Senator’s leadership on multiple key bipartisan accomplishments – like her landmark bipartisan infrastructure law, the CHIPS and Science law, this year’s annual defense legislation, and last year’s budget reconciliation package – Sinema secured and delivered historic investments fueling a healthy, resilient Arizona economy for families and businesses alike. 

“I know Arizona’s best days are ahead of us, and I remain committed to ensuring Arizona families and businesses have the opportunities and freedom needed to grow and build better futures,” said Sinema. 

Roughly 99.5% of Arizona’s businesses are small businesses, underscoring the importance of Sinema’s work advancing pro-growth policies that promote economic competitiveness and ensure small and mid-sized businesses have the resources they need to thrive.

The Senator regularly meets with business owners from across the state with diverse backgrounds to hear about the challenges and opportunities facing businesses of all sizes throughout Arizona. Already this year, Sinema has held a roundtable with Latino business leaders from diverse retail business sectors, met with the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and discussed solutions with local women small business owners with the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

The fireside chat was moderated by Todd Sanders, CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. In April, Sinema hosted a tele-town hall with Sanders to answer questions from everyday Arizonans on the state of the economy – including addressing the high prices of gas and groceries in Arizona, solving ongoing labor shortages, and creating strong careers in communities across the state.
