STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Today the Arizona House of Representatives supported efforts to urge Congress to keep the Cherrybell Mail Processing Center in Tucson open.
Rep. Andrea Dalessandro, D-Sahuarita (District 2), sponsored House Concurrent Memorial 2007, which asks Congress to take action against the closing of the Cherrybell Mail Processing Center. A house concurrent memorial can be used by the State Legislature to make an official statement on an issue outside its jurisdiction.
“If the Cherrybell Mail Processing Center closes, nearly 300 Arizonans could lose their jobs,” Dalessandro said. “The first step to job growth is to keep the jobs we already have. I am so pleased that this effort got bipartisan support.”
The House voted in favor of the memorial 35-24. It now goes to the Senate.
