May 9, 2002 – In a National Tourism Week message, Delegate Donna Christian Christensen said in a release Thursday that she plans to introduce legislation in Congress "to study potential sites to be designated as National Heritage Areas in the territory."
Christensen said tourism "remains the backbone of the Virgin Islands economy, providing the capital behind our progress and our way of life."
She added, "I believe that heritage and cultural tourism can be maximized, especially on St. Croix, and I intend to explore the ways to make it happen."
