WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema met with the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Rob Elias and Chairwoman Karla Bernal Morales to discuss fueling economic opportunities in Southern Arizona.
“Hispanic-owned businesses in Tucson provide critical services, create strong careers, and promote a healthy economy in Southern Arizona. I’ll continue expanding economic opportunities that help everyday Arizonans get ahead,” said Sinema.
The Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is the largest Latino business organization in the State of Arizona and one of the top 10 Hispanic Chambers in the nation.
Over 99% of Arizona’s businesses are small businesses. Throughout her time in Congress, Sinema has maintained a sharp focus on advancing pro-growth policies that promote economic competitiveness and ensure small and mid-sized businesses have the resources needed to thrive.
During the meeting, Sinema expressed that ensuring Arizona gets as much funding as possible from her bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law – sweeping legislation the Senator wrote, negotiated, and led through Congress – is one of her top priorities. Sinema detailed how the direct investments included in her bipartisan infrastructure law will positively impact communities across Arizona, including Hispanic-owned businesses, and ensure that Arizona’s economy continues to grow in the years ahead.
Earlier this year, Sinema held a roundtable with Latino business leaders from diverse retail business sectors to hear about the economic challenges and opportunities facing Arizona’s Latino business community.
