On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that will help prioritize travel as an industry.

Many of the proposals in the bill were backed by the travel safety board, opening opportunities for travel and tourism in planning transportation projects.

“This bill acknowledges the need to prioritize travel as an industry, because we are among the top sectors in creating activity and jobs on every rung of the economic ladder and in every corner of the country,” said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow.
