Published by Mark Begich
To create jobs in communities across the country and strengthen the American tourism industry, a group of U.S. Senators today introduced the Travel Regional Investment Partnership (TRIP) Act. The TRIP Act will promote domestic tourism by partnering public and private dollars through a competitive matching grant program within the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Tourism supports over seven million domestic jobs and accounts for 2.8% of the United States’ gross domestic product. The TRIP Act will grow the industry by allowing local destination marketing organizations such as convention and visitors’ bureaus to partner with other regional tourism entities such as parks or resorts to put together a proposal for a matching grant.

The legislation has been introduced by U.S. Senator Mark Begich (D – Alaska) and is co-sponsored by Senators Chuck Schumer (D – N.Y.), Mark Pryor (D – Ark.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D – N.Y.), and Amy Klobuchar (D – Minn.) who co-chairs the Senate Tourism Caucus.
