Governor Bentley wants to help more people find work in the state.
The Governor toured Lockheed Martin's Courtland facility in Lawrence County as part of his Road to Economic Recovery tour. The company plans to place a bid for an expansion contract for the facility for 2013 and if they get it, it could creates dozens of new jobs.
"Every day we work on recruiting industry into Alabama and help the industries that are already here expand," said Gov. Bentley.
Governor Bentley said Lockheed Martin's pending plan to expand is the perfect example of how Alabama will create more jobs in the future.
And it was his plan all along to boost the state's economy.
