December 6, 2016
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (December 6) upon passage of H.R. 4680, the National Park Service Centennial Act:

“The National Parks Service has long preserved the most scenic and beautiful locales in America,” Westerman said. “In the Fourth Congressional District of Arkansas, Hot Springs National Park has long been a top attraction and now serves as the home of my district headquarters. We are also the home of the Buffalo National River, our nation’s first ‘National River,’ established in 1972. As we recognize 100 years of the National Parks Service, I am proud to join my colleagues in the House in voting for H.R. 4680, which provides the service with new tools that will take it into another century of advocating for America’s natural, historic, and cultural resources.”
