I toured the Fourth last week, visiting sites like Hawksbill Crag, Hot Springs National Park, Mount Magazine State Park, and many others. Tourism is a multi-billion industry in Arkansas, providing jobs and an economic lifeline in the rural Fourth Congressional District. I want to thank everyone who welcomed me across the Fourth District. I encourage you to get out and visit these destinations and others across Arkansas. Experience our state’s natural beauty and hospitality. You’ll be glad you did.
