Dr. Boozman's Check-up
Apr 19 2013
Week in Review: April 15-19
Here’s a recap of the things we worked on this week in Washington.
- Votes to Protect Second Amendment Rights: Senator Boozman voted to protect the Second Amendment by opposing Majority-led efforts to erode the Constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens.
- Spirit of Enterprise Award: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce awarded its prestigious “Spirit of Enterprise” award to Senator Boozman for his support of pro-jobs, pro-growth policies during the second session of the 112th Congress.
- UAV Military Medals: The Department of Defense (DOD) announced that Secretary Chuck Hagel has canceled the creation of a new military medal for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) pilots and cyber warriors that was set to be ranked higher than the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. DOD said it would instead develop a special pin or device that would be attached to already existing medals or ribbons.
- Financial Literacy Month: April is designated as Financial Literacy Month. We are all capable of getting on the path to financial security – even Washington. There is no better time than now to start taking control of our personal finances.
