ARDA Supports Introduction of the Visit America Act
ARDA is proud to support the introduction of the Visit America Act in Congress (S.3831, H.R. 8480). This bill would create a new Assistant Secretary for Travel and Tourism at the Department of Commerce to elevate the industry within the federal government. The new position will be given the authority to develop travel and tourism goals and work across the federal government to develop strategies to accomplish them, with an emphasis on improving travel exports to the United States. The Act also would require the creation of a plan to help the travel industry recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
