Arizona’s Appropriator Announces Community Project Funding Victories

[Washington, D.C.] – Today, Rep. Kirkpatrick and her colleagues voted on her Appropriations Committee government funding bill which invests in Arizona families and the economy for Fiscal Year 2023.  This legislation will support Arizona families, create good-paying jobs and protect Arizonans’ health and well-being. Rep. Kirkpatrick is the only Arizonan sitting on the Appropriations Committee and has been an influential voice in advocating and delivering federal funds to the state.

“As Arizona’s Appropriator, I am incredibly proud of the work my team has done on this 2023 funding package. My position on the committee has allowed me to advocate for our state and deliver some significant victories to our community,” said Rep.
