Governor Parson held the Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Columbia Oct.8-10. He awarded the City of Warsaw the Innovator Award. This award recognizes smaller tourism entities that accomplish big results with small budgets. The City of Warsaw is to be commended on their commitment in bringing tourists into Benton County and increasing traffic to the downtown Warsaw area. I want to congratulate the City of Warsaw on their accomplishments.

Interim hours: Now that Session is over for 2019, I will be back in the District full time. If you need any assistance my Legislative Assistant Amy Helton will continue to be in my Capitol office Tuesday-Thursday and will be happy to help you.
