(CLARKSDALE, Mississippi) PRESS RELEASE FROM QUAPAW CANOE COMPANY

What:  Honoring the Gov. Phil Bryant, Sen. Robert Jackson, Rep. Chuck Espy, Rep. Brad Mayo, and the many others Reps and Senators who voted in SB 2972, the new Mississippi legislation specifically addressing river guiding companies on navigable waterways and nature tourism! And many, many others who helped out, who signed petitions, sent prayers, and supported us during this struggle. We have lots to celebrate in this long journey!
