Senator Kelly Statement on Proposed Budget Reconciliation Framework

Today, Arizona Senator Mark Kelly issued the following statement on the proposed budget reconciliation framework:

“Arizona families are struggling right now with rising costs while our economy continues to recover from this pandemic. This framework will address a number of Arizona priorities, from creating more renewable energy jobs and cutting taxes for middle class families, to lowering costs for health care and child care. Throughout this process, I have worked to make sure this bill is paid for and makes responsible investments to lower costs for Arizonans and support working families. As this legislation moves forward, I am continuing to talk with my colleagues to advocate for Arizona’s priorities, including how we can lower the cost of prescription drugs for Arizona seniors. I’m encouraged as we take these important steps to rebuild and grow our economy as we emerge from this pandemic.”
