U.S. Rep. John Barrow is pushing for jobs across Georgia's 12th District.
Right now he is on his Made in Georgia Tour. He made a stop at WTOC to talk about his trip to Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. and the Georgia Ports Authority to look for ways to bring manufacturing jobs back to the area.
He said the jobs never left, but that it could be easier to create them if Congress acts.
"By and large our trade policy, our regulatory policy and our tax policy are all making it harder for manufacturers to business in this country," Barrow said.
He is holding town halls in Appling, Jeff Davis, Coffee and Tattnall counties this Saturday.
