Statement by Senator Mark Pryor On Passage of the Economic Stimulus Package
Arkansas families today are struggling with higher energy, housing and food costs, not to mention a higher than average unemployment rate. Our economy reflects this strain as well as the concern many have about our economic future. I am proud the Senate acted today to give seniors, disabled veterans and most working Americans a much-needed break. We also include a safeguard in the bill to ensure illegal immigrants do not receive a rebate. I am hopeful this economic stimulus package will help give our economy the kick it needs, but I will continue to seek bipartisan solutions to spur economic growth and support Arkansas families.
