Lincoln to Travel State

Lincoln to Travel State, June 29-July 4

Washington – U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln will travel across Arkansas during Congress’ annual Fourth of July work period, Monday, June 29, through Saturday, July 4.

“After a busy session in Washington fighting for priorities such as health care and energy reform, I’m looking forward to coming home,” Arkansas’s senior senator said.  “As we recognize the independence that our forefathers fought to provide, we must not forget our men and women in uniform who continue to fight to preserve that freedom today.  The Fourth of July is a wonderful time to spend with family and friends celebrating the blessings we enjoy as Americans.  I am proud that I will have the opportunity to honor this occasion with my fellow Arkansans.”

During the week, Lincoln will attend several health care-focused events to highlight ways health care reform will bring all Arkansans greater stability—stable coverage that can’t be taken away through ups and downs; stable costs that won’t eat away at paychecks and put coverage out of reach; and stable quality so patients get the treatment they need, when they need it, and from the doctors they choose.  Lincoln has said her top priority in health care reform, currently being debated in Congress, is to ensure all Arkansans have access to quality, affordable, and meaningful coverage.

Lincoln will wrap up her week with several Fourth of July celebrations in Northeast Arkansas.
