WINSLOW, Maine (AP) - Democratic lawmakers are planning to visit a central Maine business and college to learn how to create more jobs in the area.

The Democrats’ statewide “job tour” will continue Wednesday morning at Johnny’s Selected Seeds in Winslow. Later Wednesday, they’ll meet with business and education officials at Thomas College.

House Speaker Mark Eves and House Majority Leader Jeff McCabe are expected to attend the events along with area lawmakers.

McCabe says in a statement that the central Maine stop will be a good chance for lawmakers to learn what they can do to help continue to grow the agriculture sector.

Democrats began the tour in January at Pratt & Whitney’s manufacturing facility in North Berwick. Last month, they visited several businesses in Aroostook County.
