Missouri 7th District Congressman Billy Long started off his annual Manufacturing Tour today to meet with area manufactuers and their employees. Today's stop included a tour of MSW Restaurant Furnishings, a local, family owned company that builds furniture for restaurants across the country. Long told News Talk KZRG, he couldn't stress enough the importance of local manufacturing companies for this area.
"If you take manufacturing and agriculture out of the 7th District of Missouri, you wouldn't have much left. And it's really, really a huge industry."
