LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — U.S. Senator Mark Pryor is planning visits to Conway and Fort Smith as he continues his travels across Arkansas to meet with local leaders.

Pryor is to be in Conway and Fort Smith Thursday to discuss energy development, infrastructure projects, and the 188th Fighter Wing.

He's to meet with the Conway Chamber of Commerce starting at 11:45 a.m. to talk about natural gas development — then to meet with the Conway Airport Advisory Committee at 2:30 p.m. to discuss funding for airport infrastructure projects.

Pryor is to then travel to Fort Smith for a 7:30 p.m. reception with U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Webb.

Pryor has recently visited Hot Springs and El Dorado to discuss the economy, disaster clean-up and other topics.
