AZ lawmaker affected by devastation in Haiti

Rep. Ray Barnes, a Republican from Phoenix, has an adopted daughter from Haiti, which has seen an unimaginable devastation after it was struck by an earthquake on Jan. 12.

Barnes said he and her daughter have not heard anything from her relatives in Haiti.

“We can’t communicate with them. We don’t know what’s going on,” Barnes said.

On the House floor on Jan. 14, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema of Phoenix called for a moment of silence for the Haitian people.
