Congressmen Meet with Doncaster Officials

US Rep. John Barrow (D-GA Dist. 12) was in Rincon today, and he wasn't alone. Barrow toured the Doncaster Effingham plant along with Congressman Ike Skelton, ranking member of the House Committee of Armed Forces. The congressmen met with Doncaster officials to discuss recent developments concerning the federal investigation into Dubai International Capital's pending purchase of the Doncasters Group.

"We mustn't lose sight of the fact there are hundreds and hundreds of processes under review for purchases of US defense firms by foreign nationals," said Barrow. "And we have to keep focuses on the processes and what are being addressed."

Barrow and Skelton have introduced new legislation mandating greater congressional oversight of any foreign investment affecting US national security.
