Senator Barbara Mikulski

EASTON, Md. (AP) — Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski is taking her jobs tour to the Eastern Shore.

The senator is touring the state, talking with people about which parts of their government are working and which aren’t.

She’s expected to discuss access to credit and trade issues Friday when she meets with representatives of the seafood and poultry industries. Each is a $2-billion-a-year industry for the state. Maryland’s 1,000 poultry farms create 14,700 jobs on the Delmarva peninsula, including about 8,000 jobs in Maryland.
