Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) October 1, 2009
Explore Arizona Tours supports the "Travel Promotion Act" (S. 1023). The "Travel Promotion Act" was passed by the U.S. Senate on 9/9/2009 will be presented to the House. The proposed legislation would create a public/private partnership with the intention of promoting the United States as a premier travel destination.
If passed by both the House and the Senate the "Travel Promotion Act" will:
1. Create new U.S. jobs (estimated at approximately 40,000)
2. Increase new consumer spending by up to $4 billion (according to Oxford Economics)
3. Reduce the federal budget deficit by up to $425 million (according to the Congressional Budget Office)
Tyson Bailey of Explore Arizona Tours said, "We think it's definitely time for the U.S. to get out there and talk about the good stuff. International travel is a huge industry and while we see a good number of international travelers they are usually here for a few certain hot spots like the Grand Canyon. Grand Canyon tours are the most popular tours we sell. There's so much to see and do that just isn't made known. We think this sort of program could go a long way towards changing that."
Proponents of the proposed legislation like Explore Arizona Tours (http://www.explorearizonatours.com) point out positive effects that increased international tourist traffic would have on the struggling U.S. economy. The average international visitor spends between $4,000 and $5,000 per visit. The immediate influx of new consumer funds would go a long way towards alleviating the tense state of the economy for the American public.
