Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after his visit to the MARVA Workshop in Russellville where he heard from client workers and families about the importance of protecting sheltered workshops.
"MARVA and similar organizations are a true blessing to their client-workers, families, customers, and all Arkansans. They give a sense of purpose and a chance for meaningful life to our most vulnerable neighbors. I will continue to protect MARVA and organizations like it from any effort to close them down."
