Record year for spending by tourists visiting America!

Spending by foreign visitors to the U.S. totaled $127 billion in the first 10 months of 2011 and is on pace to break the $141 billion record set in 2008, the U.S. tourism agency says. The figure is expected to top $152 billion for 2011, the U.S. Office of Travel and Tourism Industries reports

That's great news as tourism spending creates jobs!
I’ve mentioned in past posts that enlightened US visa policies will help grow this revenue & I’m hearing positive yes positive reports from Washington that Congress is moving towards the recommended changes!
