|Subject:||Resolution Re-draft of National Travel and Tourism Week in Pennsylvania|
This is the re-draft of HR 298, which had minor drafting errors. If your member co-sponsored the previous resolution, please add them to this one.
I am planning to introduce a resolution recognizing the week of May 7-13, 2017, as “National Travel and Tourism Week” in Pennsylvania.
Tourism is the state’s second-largest industry, supporting over 489,000 jobs and generating $41 billion in total economic impact from 193 million visits by leisure and business travelers. Many small businesses are involved in the tourism industry, and the hotels, restaurants, bed-and-breakfasts and attractions they run constitute an important and vital segment of local economies across the state.
