What They’re Watching: Daniel Seiden, Arizona Chamber of Commerce

Along with supporting initiatives to fortify Arizona’s shortage of nurses and other health care workers, Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry President and CEO Daniel Seiden says he’s focused on fighting government mandates concerning health care and attempts to “interfere in the private right of contracting” at the federal and local levels.

“So I’m talking about price controls on our pharmaceutical drugs, which will crush innovation and limit access,” Seiden said. “That access is for patients to get life-saving and innovative treatments, so we’re fighting really hard against that …”

He added that his organization worked hard with US Sen. Kyrsten Sinema to stop the passage of the federal Build Back Better plan.
