Statewide Jobs and Industry Tour
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the first two months of 2014, U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) will visit businesses in each of Alabama’s sixty-seven counties as part of his statewide jobs and industry tour. Shelby issued the following statement on these visits:
“Job creation must be our top priority as a nation, and it will be the focus of my statewide travel. It is critical that I hear firsthand from job creators and workers how federal policies are affecting economic growth, and what we can do to create more jobs in Alabama. These conversations with my constituents have always played a critical role in informing how I vote on issues before the Senate, and I look forward to traveling throughout the state again this year.”
Since 1987, the beginning of Shelby’s first term in the U.S. Senate, he has held more than 1,800 county visits in Alabama. Click here to view a video on Shelby’s county visits.
