VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A south Georgia Congressman says he's standing up for small businesses.

Tuesday First District Representative Jack Kingston toured JM Eagle, a pvc pipe manufacturer in Adel.

He says business owners are too busy working and taking care of customers to lobby politicians, so he tries to come to them to gauge what's working in Washington and what's not.

He heard a lot of concerns.

"So many jobs are being held out because of the credit crunch," said Kingston. "We're changing all the rules and regulations of small banks and people are leaving investment money and leaving it on the sidelines."

Kingston also toured Chaparrel Boats in Nashville and got a look at the Air Traffic Control School at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College.
