Dear Friend,

I hope that everyone across Arkansas had an enjoyable holiday season spending time with friends and family.

2020 has been a trying year filled with difficult and unprecedented challenges. This year, I was encouraged by our nation’s ability to come together and solve big issues.

We enter 2021 with several bipartisan COVID-19 relief bills passed, an FDA approved vaccine, and a strong will to bring this pandemic to a swift end.

My team and I are proud to have helped provide:
  • $9.25 billion in relief funding to our state to offset this virus’s negative economic impact,
  • over 43,000 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, totaling $3.3 billion,
  • over $2.2 billion in Economic Impact Payments (EIP) to qualifying Arkansans.
  • Aid to 222 central Arkansans with missing stimulus payments,
  • over $400,000 in Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL).

To address current and future needs, Arkansas received $1.25 billion to provide expanded health care resources and promote our state’s economic recovery.

In addition to critical COVID relief legislation, I introduced the Scipio Jones Post Office Portrait Act which was signed into law by President Trump on December 3rd. This legislation will honor the legacy of Arkansas civil rights champion and lawyer, Scipio Jones, by hanging his portrait in the Little Rock Post Office that bears his name.

Through the hardships this recent year presented, I am proud of the work that my team and I were able to accomplish for the hard-working men and women of Arkansas. 

Additionally, I want to thank all who have interacted with my office and played an important role in joining with me to build a better Arkansas. 

In 2020, my team and I:

  • Helped 838 central Arkansanswith issues before the federal government
  • Secured for Arkansas veterans over $3.7 million in benefits and money owed
  • Supported $10 million in federal grants for Arkansas

I’m guessing many of you who read my weekly e-newsletter have had some type of contact with my office this past year; I sincerely thank you for your input.

Your perspectives and opinions help me do a better job serving you. The only way to solve the challenges we face is through constructive conversations, and I am so grateful to all of you, including many of our local leaders and elected officials, who have worked with my staff and me to build positive solutions for Arkansas.
