Sen. Shelby to visit Dallas County on statewide jobs tour

SELMA, AL (WSFA) - U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) will visit Dallas County to meet with employees at Hanil E-Hwa Interior Systems in Selma. The visit is scheduled for Tuesday, January 21.

The Dallas County visit will mark Sen. Shelby's twelfth stop in a statewide jobs and industry tour, during which he will visit a business in each of Alabama's 67 counties.

"Job creation must be our top priority as a nation, and it will be the focus of my statewide travel," Shelby said in a statement. "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."

Sen. Shelby has held more than 1,800 county visits in Alabama since first becoming a senator in 1987.
