WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators John Boozman (R-AR) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke on the Senate floor honoring the life of former Arkansas Governor and U.S. Senator David Pryor.

“Every interaction with David Pryor conveyed that he cared and that he wanted to help. That posture certainly worked to his advantage over decades in public life,” Boozman said. “Senator Pryor leaves behind a legacy of public service rich with accomplishments that made a difference in the lives of Arkansans and people all across our country. He modeled statesmanship and stewardship so incredibly well, and we celebrate everything he represented.” 

“David Pryor led Arkansas through recession and recovery and left an enduring legacy on state government. He fought for what he believed would make Arkansas better. I join with Senator Boozman in honoring former-Senator Pryor—a great Arkansan, statesman and dedicated public servant,” said Cotton.

On Thursday, the Senate passed a resolution honoring the life and legacy of the late senator.
