Feel like doing some good today? Bill Hardman, President & CEO of the Southeast Tourism Society, sent out an email detailing how you can help get the government to spend some money on promoting tourism to the U.S. Read on...
Here's what he said (I edited it a bit... couldn't help myself!):
Funds are needed to properly promote the message that tourism is vital to our nation's economy. Close to 100 members of Congress and over 25 senators have supported the Travel Promotion Act of 2007 (H.R. 3232/S.1661). But we need to increase these numbers significantly to move this legislation forward.
That's why I am enlisting your help. We encourage you to use this letter to expedite your communication with D.C. To find your member of Congress, simply go to this site; to find your senator, go to this site. Let him/her know of the importance of the legislation and ask him/her to sign on as a co-sponsor of the Act.
