Designation as a National Historic Trail could bring more economic opportunities to the state, and especially communities along the "Ox-Bow Route," as well as honor the pioneers who traveled it and preserve structures important to our regional and national heritage.
Arkansas has been leading in computer science education and cyber skills. I’m proud of the efforts being made at the local and state level to prioritize this curriculum given how crucial it is to the 21st century economy and will continue my support at the federal level. #CSforAR
I joined @ftsmithchamber members for a discussion about important community issues and ways my office continues to provide assistance & support. There’s no substitute for sitting down together like this, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to participate despite being back in DC
@DeptVetAffairs estimates around 20 #veterans commit suicide each day – roughly unchanged in over a decade despite a tremendous increase in funding. I'm glad a new approach I've championed to address this crisis is one step closer to becoming a reality. The House should pass it.
Todays' vote is a disappointing development. It leaves behind too many Americans in need in the name of partisanship. Democrats blocked progress on this package while also refusing to negotiate on realistic solutions that stand a chance of becoming law.
I'm pleased the Senate took this step to provide relief and support to America's workers & families in the form of free virus testing, paid sick and family leave, nutrition assistance and more as folks experience difficulties resulting from this pandemic. We have more work to do.
The #ServingARVets tour has been a great week traveling across the state meeting with #veterans , visiting vet-owned businesses, touring VA facilities serving Arkansans and listening to voices advocating with and for our former service members. Thanks to all who participated.
I appreciated the opportunity to participate in today's @VAChair hearing to conduct oversight of @DeptVetAffairsand get an update about efforts to serve #veteransduring the coronavirus pandemic. It's vital the VA continues to fulfill this duty on behalf of our nation's heroes.
