TODAY: I issued an Executive Order to meet surging job demand and support job creators throughout Arizona as employment opportunities grow and the #COVID19 vaccine is available for anyone who wants it. 1/
Today’s Order rescinds a March 2020 Executive Order that waived the requirement that an individual receiving employment benefits must be actively looking for work in order to receive the benefits. 2/
A year out from the start of the pandemic, jobs & vaccines are readily available. Arizonans are ready to get back to work. Our economy is booming, jobs need filling, more than 2M Arizonans are fully vaccinated, & vaccination appointments are available to anyone who wants one. 3/
As President Reagan said, the best social program is a job. This statement rings true today. Unemployment benefits are still available to Arizonans who need them, but now that plenty of jobs are available, those receiving the benefits should be actively looking for work. 4/
Details on today’s Order can be found here:… 5/5

Today, I’m proud to sign #SB1453 to allow community colleges to offer four-year degrees, paving the way for Arizona’s current and future workforces and expanding opportunities for populations that are historically underrepresented in higher education. @PaulDBoyer @beckynutt3 1/
Arizona’s community colleges play a critical role in supporting students of all ages and equipping our workforce with skills and resources. 2/
Arizona is a school choice state, and today’s action is school choice for higher education. This is 'Opportunity for All' in action. It will allow students even more opportunities as they strengthen their education and expand their employment opportunities. 3/

I am extremely disappointed in the Administration’s decision to cease progress on Arizona’s Resolution Copper Project, which is set to grow jobs and is estimated to create a direct and indirect economic impact of more than $1 billion to Arizona’s economy every year. 1/
An effective & predictable regulatory environment is a key factor in Arizona’s booming economy. In AZ, we follow what works. Undoing lengthy, comprehensive, & already-completed federal environmental studies on a whim with the changing of federal administrations doesn’t work. 2/
This type of activity threatens an untold number of major projects in Arizona and around the country. I am calling on the @USDA to reissue these crucial documents in a timely manner and continue progress on this job-creating project. 3/

In America, we believe in the peaceful transition of power. It doesn't matter who you supported in the election — once the election is over, we put country before party. Never has it been more important than right now to observe these traditions for the whole world to see. 1/
I was honored to represent Arizona at the inauguration of President Trump in 2017, and I am honored to represent our state at the 59th Inaugural Ceremonies next week. President-elect Biden is assuming office at a critical time in our nation’s history, and I wish him well. 2/
I will not agree with him on everything and I certainly will not hesitate to share my views on the public policy issues that matter to Arizonans, but I believe President-elect Biden is a good man and wants to serve his country. 3/

I’ve been pretty outspoken about Arizona’s election system, and bragged about it quite a bit, including in the Oval Office. And for good reason. 1/
We’ve been doing early voting since 1992. Arizona didn’t explore or experiment this year. We didn’t cancel election day voting as some pushed for — we weren’t going to disenfranchise any voter. 2/
In Arizona, we have some of the strongest election laws in the country, laws that prioritize accountability and clearly lay out procedures for conducting, canvassing, and even contesting the results of an election. 3/

Arizona, and our nation, remain in a public health emergency. It’s been a long haul — but we need to redouble our efforts. Today, we’re announcing additional efforts to protect Arizonans and fight #COVID19 ⬇️ 1/

The holidays are a time to connect with those we care about most, but they can also present real risks of spreading #COVID19. @AZDHS has released new guidance to help all Arizonans celebrate safely this year.
