VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Congressman Jack Kingston works to protect contractors at the Moody Air Force Base housing project.

Kingston spent Tuesday morning touring South Georgia Pecan Company and Valdosta Coca- Cola Bottling Company before speaking at Lowndes County's Chamber of Commerce annual lunch.

Besides the Moody housing situation, Kingston spoke about alternative energy, affordable health care and immigration.

"In the recent Defense Authorization bill, I put in some language that says the Air Force needs to set up a hotline for the area sub-contractors, so they can find out what the status is. Also, we're asking them to give a report by August 1st on what is going on. So that raises the visibility of the Moody Housing situation," Kingston said.

Kingston also presented a check to the Berrien County Development Authority for $294,000 for the North Berrien Industrial Park.
