America’s Travel Community Commends Senate Passage of Recovery Act
Critical Infrastructure Investments in Roads and Highways, Airports, and Public Lands Will Create New Jobs and Modernize America’s Travel Systems
"While we are disappointed that neither version of the stimulus package includes language to create a nationally-coordinated travel promotion campaign that communicates U.S. security and entry policies and welcomes more overseas visitors to the United States, we look forward to continuing our work with Congress and President Obama on the issue. Attracting more visitors will create more U.S. jobs, increase state, local and federal tax revenues and strengthen America’s image around the world. We also pledge to support efforts in Congress to accelerate investments in a modern air traffic control system to restore the confidence of American travelers in a reliable domestic air travel system."
Previously the Travel Industry Association, the U.S. Travel Association is the national, non-profit organization representing all components of the $740 billion travel industry. U.S. Travel’s mission is to promote and facilitate increased travel to and within the United States. U.S. Travel is proud to be a partner in travel with American Express. For more information, visit .
