WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today honored Robert Travis Scott, who served as the president of the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana for 10 years, on the Senate floor.

“We have an organization in Louisiana called the Public Affairs Research Council. It is one of our premier think tanks. It’s an independent group, not political. They do serious research, and they offer very serious suggestions about how we in Louisiana can solve some of our social and economic problems,” said Kennedy.

“To be the director or the president of PAR is quite an honor. It’s a lot of work, and it’s a big deal, and our president of PAR is retiring. He’s a friend of mine—his name is Robert Travis Scott,” explained Kennedy.

“It was no surprise to me when PAR asked Robert to take over running the Public Affairs Research Council . . . and he’s done it since 2011—10 years. Robert and PAR have contributed so much to my state. . . . We’re going to miss Robert. I hope he doesn’t go far,” concluded Kennedy.
