Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry CEO Danny Seiden recently published an article highlighting “Arizona’s decades of success advancing sustainable growth.”

In Seiden’s rebuttal to a Foreign Policy magazine article discounting investment in Arizona from abroad, he points out that “For decades, Arizona has embraced a forward-thinking approach to conserving its most precious resource—water—and securing its long-term future. In fact, many of the world-class conservation efforts being implemented elsewhere as emergency measures were established in Arizona decades ago as a way of life.”

He then cites an astonishing fact: “Arizona uses less water today than in 1957, with more than six times the population and 22 times the economy as measured by gross domestic income growth.”
