Sen. Kelly Statement on Inflation Reduction Act 

Today, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly issued the following statement as the Senate takes its first procedural vote on the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.

“I’ve spent a lot of time with Arizonans and small business owners across our state. The top concern I hear from folks is the rising cost of everything from energy prices to life-saving prescription drugs. We secured our plan to lower prescription drug prices in the final bill. After working with other western senators to secure a $4 billion investment in this bill to combat western drought, I will vote to advance the Inflation Reduction Act. This legislation also tackles the changing climate that is impacting our state and makes responsible investments to create great-paying Arizona jobs in renewable energy without raising taxes on hardworking families. There will be partisan attempts to obstruct this legislation, but I’ll stay focused on getting it over the finish line for Arizona.”
