“In 2020, our world fought an invisible enemy,” said O’Halleran. “We lost too many loved ones to this deadly disease, saw beloved small businesses close their doors forever, witnessed health care workers and frontline heroes pushed to the very brink, and had our entire way of American life upended.

“Last year, Congress passed five legislative packages to address the economic and public health challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, and bring relief to struggling families, businesses, schools, hospitals, and more. However, while the legislation we have passed for Arizona families this year addresses some concerns, we have come nowhere close to addressing all concerns.

“I was humbled to spend 2020 working to serve Arizonans, and, as the 117th Congress begins, I am committed to securing and delivering relief for hardworking Arizona families and bringing much-needed accountability to Washington to ensure we never see the kind of partisan procrastination we dealt with throughout the past year hamstring our ability to function as a Congress again.” 

Over the course of 2020, O’Halleran 

  • held 128 video meetings,102 phone call meetings, and 27 socially distant meetings with organizations, communities, local governments, businesses, tribal communities, families, and individuals across Arizona and in Washington, D.C.;
  • held 10 virtual town halls;
  • attended 22 virtual committee hearings;
  • introduced 11 bills;
  • saw 7 pieces of legislation become law;
