Sinema, Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Discuss Growing Economic Opportunities in Southern Arizona

Mar 21, 2022

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema spoke with Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Rob Elias to discuss growing economic opportunities in Southern Arizona.
“Tucson’s Hispanic businesses are critical economic engines for our state, and I’ll continue working to create jobs and expand opportunities so Arizonans can thrive and keep more money in their pockets,” said Sinema, co-author and negotiator of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs law. 
Sinema shared with Mr. Elias updates on her work in the Senate to fuel innovation and expand opportunity for Arizona businesses and communities through lean and efficient policy-making. As Chair of the Senate Government Operations Subcommittee, Sinema continues to work across the aisle to cut red tape and burdensome regulations to boost economic outcomes and ensure that Arizona thrives to the future.
In a bipartisan letter, Sinema recently urged Senate leaders to improve and expand the Research and Development (R&D) tax credit in any future legislative package to help startups and small businesses stay competitive and increase innovation.
Sinema also recently urged Congressional leaders of both parties to preserve the full $52 billion investment in American semiconductor manufacturing in the United States Innovation and Competition Act, to quickly address America’s severe semiconductor shortage and related supply chain issues.
