U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-Ala.) is traveling across Alabama during his first week-long state work period since being sworn into office in January.
His tour stops include Mobile, Selma, Centreville, Birmingham, Muscle Shoals, Huntsville, and Montgomery.
His tour will highlight different key community priorities such as boosting rural healthcare, defense, infrastructure, workforce development, and education.

We’re going to focus on the issues that are most important to our communities, from healthcare to jobs to education.”
