“Job creation must be our top priority as a nation, and it will be the focus of my statewide travel,” Sen. Shelby said. 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 the state again this year.”
