Destination Capitol Hill

Travel Oregon, along with Oregon Tourism Commissioners and industry partners from the Oregon Caves National Monument, the Port of Portland, Central Oregon Visitors Association, Travel Portland, and Travel Lane County, met with Oregon’s federal policy makers during U.S. Travel Association’s annual Destination Capitol Hill.

The delegation met with all seven members of the state’s federal legislative branch and discussed key issues for national travel including: increasing the Passenger Facility Charge, supporting the Visa Waiver Program and ensuring that travel and tourism officials have a place at the table when crises occur that may affect the tourism industry.
