In a Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee hearing considering the nominations of individuals for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) positions, Senator Boozman asked Thomas Burke who is nominated to be Assistant Administrator of the Office of Research and Development of the EPA about collaboration with the National Center for Toxicological Research. This facility is located in Jefferson, Arkansas near Pine Bluff.

Boozman also asked Burke if he would commit to work with members of Congress for commonsense reforms to strengthen the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). In February, Boozman and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) introduced the EPA Science Advisory Board Reform Act to improve confidence in the fairness and transparency of EPA regulations and rulemaking.

For 56 years members of the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce have come to Washington, DC to talk with members of the Arkansas Congressional Delegation. Boozman met with members during their annual fly-in on Wednesday, April 22.
Sen. Boozman, a member of the State, Foreign Operations Subcommittee, participated in the hearing: Diplomacy, Development & National Security and welcomed Little Rock resident Scott Ford, CEO of Westrock Group, LLC before the committee. Ford testified because he is active in international development from a private sector standpoint and has had much success. As he points out in his testimony "we estimate that the sum total of our coffee activities in Rwanda alone, over the past six years, put upwards of $100 million directly into the pockets of small-holder coffee farmers."
