PHOENIX – Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry President and CEO Danny Seiden released the following statement:
“Arizona job creators agree with Gov. Hobbs that the strong working relationship between the public and private sectors has produced a robust, resilient economy that is attracting new investment from across the country and around the world. We look forward to working with her and lawmakers from both parties to ensure that the Arizona Commerce Authority – the nation’s leading state economic development agency – is renewed so that it can continue its excellent work.
“We are skeptical, however, of her plan to cap prices on prescription drugs. Just as the Chamber has opposed efforts in Washington to impose risky pricing schemes that discourage lifesaving innovation, we will oppose similar efforts at a state level.
“While job creators and the governor won’t agree on everything this session, she’ll get no argument from us that Arizona is on the ascent and that we should strive to ensure that everyone who calls Arizona home should have the opportunity to succeed. Here’s to a productive session on behalf of the people of Arizona.”
