GRAND JUNCTION, COLO. (AP) -- Sen. Michael Bennet is setting off on a jobs tour on the Western Slope. His first stop Monday is a wind turbine plant in Grand Junction.
The Democratic senator plans to talk about the wind energy tax credit, which he says should be extended.
Later this week, Bennet has three agriculture visits scheduled. The senator plans to talk about conservation easements at a farm in Palisade, to talk about foreign workers at a corn farm in Olathe and to meet with farmers in Cortez to hear ideas about the next Farm Bill.
Bennet's Western Slope tour concludes Wednesday with a visit to a business in Durango.
