Congressional Campaign Switches Gears
Rick Neighbors found a local business in Guntersville, Alabama that had a partnership with a company in China that made suits for Europe. They were ready to switch their process to make 65,000 to 90,000 masks a week, but were held up for a permit with the Food and Drug Administration. They contacted U.S. Senator Doug Jones, Birmingham Democrat, and began the process of helping to import the masks the health care workers in Alabama needed. U.S. Senator Jones responded to the call and helped push through the permit.
