Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on Senate passage of the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site boundary expansion:

"This is a fitting end to the 60th anniversary year of the Little Rock Nine. Now, future generations of Americans will be able to see exactly how both Little Rock Central High and the surrounding neighborhood looked to those nine brave students on that fateful day when they changed the course of history. This historic site is a precious part of our country's heritage, and it's vital that we preserve it in its entirety."
