Womack Leads Congressional Delegation in Antarctica

Washington, DC—November 27, 2023…Congressman Steve Womack (R-AR) led a Congressional Delegation (CODEL) trip to Antarctica with other members of the House Appropriations Committee to see firsthand the ongoing research and projects in the region under the committee's jurisdiction.

Congressman Womack said, "The CODEL to Antarctica was not only informative, but it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, from the sites we saw to the people we met. My colleagues and I spent our Thanksgiving there to show appreciation to the Americans—some of whom are proud Arkansans—conducting the science and research vital to our country. I'm incredibly grateful to these people representing the greatest nation in the world while working in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth."
