Arizonans know the importance of maintaining our national parks’ beauty and accessibility. Recently, congress passed the Great American Outdoors Act, legislation to improve infrastructure and access to our national parks and public lands, while also promoting new job growth.
I am pleased to report this legislation has been signed into law by President Trump. I voted in favor of this bipartisan bill, as I know this legislation will benefit our state of Arizona significantly. As an avid hiker, I know the importance of maintaining our public lands and national parks. These national treasures also play a critical role in our state’s revenue and employment, ultimately contributing to our local economic development.

I am pleased to ensure, through this newly enacted legislation, that we can all continue to enjoy these local treasures.
