Westerman plans events during break
The House of Representatives isn’t scheduled to meet this week. Instead, lawmakers will spend the time in their districts. The Senate will convene Monday-Wednesday, breaking in time for the celebration of Rosh Hashanah.
The two-day holiday, sometimes referred to as the Jewish New Year, runs from sundown Wednesday until sundown Friday.
U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman plans to focus on transportation and infrastructure while he’s back in Arkansas. He’ll discuss those topics at a lunch Monday in Pine Bluff. He’ll also get an update in Benton on U.S. 70 widening. When it’s completed, the road linking Hot Springs and Interstate 30 will have five lanes.
On Tuesday, the Republican from Hot Springs will meet with trucking industry executives in Mulberry; on Wednesday, he will tour a rail line in El Dorado and discuss transportation and infrastructure in Camden. He’ll also tour Transitech in Fordyce. The company fixes railcars.
