“Arizona is getting billions of dollars in infrastructure investment thanks to Senators Sinema and Kelly,” said Advancing Arizona’s Andrea Moreno.

In addition, communities all across the state are already benefitting from the law.

At the present time, more than $3.2 billion in funding went to Arizona, with $2.4 billion allocated to rebuilding roads.
