U.S. Mayors, Travel Industry Leaders Applaud Senate's Travel Promotion Act

The nation's mayors joined with the with Travel Business Roundtable to praise the bi-partisan leadership of Senators Daniel Inouye (D-HI), Ted Stevens (R-AK) and Byron Dorgan (D-ND) for their leadership on the introduction and passage of the Travel Promotion Act of 2007, S. 1661. The legislation, which passed in the Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday, represents a major step forward in restoring America's place as a destination of choice for international travelers. The passage of the Travel Promotion Act coincides with increased interest in the issue of international travel to the U.S. on the part of the nation's mayors. Earlier this week, Mayors voted on and passed several critical travel resolutions, including one that called for the creation of a federal promotion campaign and important visa reforms.
