This week marks a nationwide a promotion by the travel and tourism industry. I'll be providing some key talking points during the week.
Did you know the economic impact of the Travel and Tourism (TAT) industry on our nation's economy:

Direct travel expenditures produce $115 billion in tax revenue for local, state and federal
Each U.S. household would pay $988 more in taxes without the tax revenue generated by
the travel and tourism industry.
