Pryor to visit Gulf to tour oil spill damage

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor is traveling on Friday to the Gulf Coast to tour damage from BP's oil spill and discuss clean-up efforts. Pryor's office says the senator will travel to Louisiana with Sen. John Ensign of Nevada.

The two lawmakers plan to tour damage to wetland habitat at the Pass-a-Loutre Wildlife Management Area in New Iberia, La. They also plan to discuss planning and coordination with state and local officials during a boat tour around Grand Isle, fly over Barataria Bay and Grand Isle to view damage caused by the oil spill.
