Lincoln and Pryor helped pass an appropriation for the Razorback Greenway from Fayetteville to Bella Vista. Boozman voted NO: So what's new? It is a great benefit for our region; he seldom has voted for such

In case you missed it … Senators Lincoln and Pryor recently announced $15 million for an important economic development project for Northwest Arkansas, the Northwest Arkansas Razorback Regional Greenway Project.
The Razorback Greenway project is an initiative to connect livable communities with active, non-motorized transportation along a 40-mile bicycle, pedestrian and mobility corridor that will join the southern part of Fayetteville to Lake Bella Vista. The corridor will pass through Bentonville, Rogers, Lowell, Springdale, Johnson and Fayetteville. This project is a national model for green infrastructure, sustainable economic development and public-private partnerships.

Congressman Boozman voted against the bill making this important project in his own congressional district a reality.  It’s just another example of Congressman Boozman putting his D.C. party leaders ahead of his own constituents.
