The committee is responsible for considering bills relating to tourism, arts, and culture, and for promoting jobs and economic development through tourism. “My district is home to international tourist destinations including the Old North Bridge, Walden Pond, and Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House,” said Atkins, a Democrat. “Tourism brings visitors who help our economy and create jobs in our communities.”
