Statement by Senator Mark Pryor On the U.S. Corps of Engineers Plan to Close Campsites

Senator Mark Pryor made the following statement following an announcement by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to close 500 campsites out of the 6,000 campsites in the Little Rock District.

“As we reduce government spending, we must prioritize services and make tough budget decisions. At the same time, I know that closing these campsites is bitter news for both the families who enjoy camping and the businesses they support. I will work with the Corps to ensure the system for selecting which sites to close is fair and that there are ample opportunities nearby to enjoy Arkansas’s outdoors.”
