LeMieux, Grayson, Kosmas at the White House for travel bill signing



President Barack Obama this morning will sign the Travel Promotion Act and on hand will be three members of the Florida delegation: Sen. George LeMieux, Rep. Alan Grayson and Rep. Suzanne Kosmas.

The act institutes a $10 fee on foreign tourists to create the Corporation for Travel Promotion that will promote the United States and explain travel and security policies. It was the final bill that Sen. Mel Martinez, a co-sponsor, voted on before quitting in September 2009.
