U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) complimented Senate leaders for taking steps to try to enact all the appropriations bills and committing his support to accomplishing this, in a speech on the Senate floor.

“The American people are tired of the finger pointing that has stalled much of the work they sent us here to do, but I’m hopeful we are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. That starts with trying to enact all appropriations bills through a regular process this year,” Boozman said in his speech.

Boozman joined the bipartisan effort on the Senate floor highlighting the need for regular order in the chamber and trying to enact the appropriations bills as a good example.

Senator Boozman spoke in support of S. J. Res. 6 which would put a stop to the FCC's Net Neutrality rules from going forward. He spoke on the Senate Floor talking about how the rules will stifle innovation, investment and ultimately job growth.

Senator Boozman answers questions about the Joint Congressional Committee or what is more commonly referred to as the Supercommittee, the No Child Left Behind Reauthorization and Social Security in this edition of "From the Mailbag."

U.S. Senator John Boozman (AR) took to the floor of the Senate today to press for the "Cap, Cut & Balance Act" and to challenge the Majority and White House to present a debt ceiling plan of their own.
