Legislative Republicans Run The Most Extreme, Right-Wing Agenda In Decades, Blocking Opportunities for Arizonan Families

PHOENIX – Legislative Republicans are pushing the most extreme, right-wing agenda that Arizonans have seen in decades.

In just over a month of the session, we’ve seen:

“Arizona’s Republicans are continuing the destructive work of Donald Trump, dismantling access to reproductive healthcare, blocking voter access, attacking the LGBTQ community, and defunding our public schools. 

“The agenda we’ve seen Republicans push this year is far to the right of Arizona’s independent values, and is both insulting to voters and destructive to the rights and livelihoods of Arizonans.

“While thousands of Arizonans are out of work and small businesses are struggling, we’re watching anti-democracy Republicans make our state a national punchline. Republicans should be ashamed. Arizonans deserve better from their elected officials,” says Liz Luna, Deputy Executive Director of the Arizona Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee
