Update from the Senate Majority Leadership on COVID-19
(State Capitol, Phoenix) – Senate Majority Leadership is proud of its body for coming together, setting politics aside and for prioritizing the health and safety of our Arizonans.
"This is such a unique and unfortunate situation the whole world is in," said President Karen Fann. "But I am pleased to see that legislators set aside their wants and needs in order to protect the lives of each person in our state and worldwide."
The Senate and House have done everything in their power to protect Arizona. The budget that was passed includes the funding for K-12 schools, Unemployment Insurance, Economic Assistance to Small Businesses/Organizations, Mortgage Assistance, and many other necessary appropriations.
"I am glad to see our budget reflects how much we care about Arizona and its residents," said Senator Vince Leach. "This budget is not ideal and does not include everything we wanted, but it does include everything our citizens need in this time of crisis."
Upon completion of the budget, the Arizona Senate will recess until Monday, April 13, 2020 or to the sound of the gavel. We will keep you updated on any new developments as they arise.
Stay healthy, stay safe, and stay at home.
