Today would have been a Beeeaaauuutteeeffuulll steamboatin' day here in the Ohio River Valley. By this time next year, with your help, contacting your Representatives we can make it happen !!! Iowa has two Districts with Representatives along the Mississippi River. Rod Blum is already a co-sponsor of H.R. 619. Please call him at 202-225-2911 to thank him for his support. David Loebsack represents the southern part of the state bordering the River. Please call him at 202-225-4426 to ask him to not only support H.R. 619, but to also co-sponsor it. Arkansas has three Districts that have Representatives that should be interested in the DELTA QUEEN running again. They are Rick Crawford who represents the length of the state bordering the Mississippi River. His number is 202-225-4076. Many may not know, but the DELTA QUEEN has turnover days in Little Rock. So therefore, folks fly in and out of the airport there. I personally, have gotten on the DQ in Little Rock and spent the night at a local hotel before boarding there. The Representative for the Little Rock area is French Hill. His number is 202-225-2506. And believe it or not the DELTA QUEEN actually goes to Fort Smith (and beyond). That District is represented by Steve Womack. His number is 202-225-4301. If you live in these Districts or have family or friends that live in any of them, please call or email these Representatives and ask not only that they support H.R. 619, but that they co-sponsor H.R. 619 as well.
