Ask AZ Reps to protect citizens during COVID-19 outbreak

I am sharing the following action from Victoria Steele, member of the Arizona State Senate representing District 9.

"I am calling for my Republican colleagues in the Arizona Legislature that in addition to a bare-bones budget, we move to immediately:

Impose a moratorium on rent increases, foreclosures, evictions, and utility shutoffs during the pandemic

Funding to offset out of pocket costs and assist uninsured people in accessing COVID-19 testing

Provide supports for nursing homes and assisted living facilities and the people who are working in those facilities

Make funding easily available to allow sick leave for all public workers who are under quarantine or sick

Supply additional resources for food banks

Extended medication and medical supplies for individuals recommended to self-isolate

Streamline unemployment benefits and TANF applications for those who are laid off

If these things are important to you - please let all of your Legislators know now! Call and email them: "

To find out who your legislator is, first find your district.

Use that district to find your Reps:

Use that district to find your Senator.
