The Arkansas Senate has unanimously approved a bill that would dub Springdale, the home of Tyson Foods, the "Poultry Capital of the World."

The name would be written into a section of state law that names Arkansas' official flower, motto and bird, among other matters. Republican Sen. Jon Woods of Springdale told the Associated Press a city council member had approached him about the idea as a way to market the northwest Arkansas city.


The bill, approved March 21 by the Senate, now heads to the state House for consideration.
