Helping Arizona Families

Dear Friend,

Every day, Arizona parents are forced to return to work because they simply cannot afford to take time off. No parent should have to choose between a paycheck and spending critical time at home with a child in the early months of parenthood.

As the cost of living continues to rise, so too does the cost of starting and raising a family. Arizona families already struggle to make ends meet, and it’s time Congress did something to help hardworking parents get ahead. Working with Congressman John Katko of New York, we recently introduced the Working Parents Flexibility Act, bipartisan legislation to ease the financial burden of starting a family.

The Working Parents Flexibility Act allows an individual and his or her employer to contribute pre-tax income to a Parental Leave Savings Account, similar to a Health Savings Account. Earnings on the account are not taxed and can be used to cover expenses during the first year of parenting. This commonsense solution strengthens our economy and helps Arizona families afford the costs of child care.

Our goal is to ensure every Arizonan has the opportunity to succeed. We will continue to reach across the aisle to find and advance reasonable solutions that support Arizona families and grow our state’s economy.

We are honored to serve in Congress on behalf of Arizona families like yours. We always appreciate hearing from you on current topics and issues that are important to you. If there is an issue that concerns you, please let us know by clicking this link or by calling our Phoenix office: 602-956-2285.

Sincerely,

Kyrsten
