Maiden Speech

Mar 28 2011

U.S. Senator John Boozman delivered his maiden speech on the Senate floor. In his speech, Boozman called for the implementation of policies that force Washington to rein in spending.

"The only way will we get a handle on this situation is to reform the manner in which we budget and allocate federal dollars. It's time we put mechanisms in place to stop the government from spending beyond its means," Boozman said in his address.

Boozman also highlighted the unemployment in Arkansas and policies Washington needs to adopt to encourage private sector innovation and growth in order to create jobs for hardworking Americans. Emphasizing an environment that encourages job growth, Boozman pointed to efforts that helped bring the Mitsubishi Power Systems wind turbine plant to Fort Smith.
