House Democratic Statement On Veto of HB2509
PHOENIX – House Democratic leadership released the following statement regarding the veto of House Bill 2509 and GOP calls for a veto override:
"House Democrats will not override the veto of House Bill 2509.
We will work with our legislative colleagues on improved policy that will support Arizona’s small business owners and cottage food entrepreneurs—and we’d like to get this done this session.
Last year, three Republican bills with broad bipartisan support were vetoed by the former governor — including one that was unanimously supported by the House and Senate. Not once did House Republicans seek to vilify Doug Ducey as they have Governor Hobbs since she took office in January.
If the GOP is serious about the work ahead, we invite them to join us to develop common-sense policy solutions that will show Arizonans we can rise above partisan distractions.”
