The Abitibi mill was one of several subjects tackled by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison Wednesday. The senator spent time in Lufkin talking to Rotary members about their priorities right now in congress.
She also gave her support for reopening the Lufkin mill.
"I want to weigh in to ask the people to keep the Lufkin paper mill open because that will be good jobs for Lufkin. Everything that I can do, I certainly will do."
The senator also talked about her ideas for making sure there's enough social security available for future generations.
Rotarians all over the world are celebrating 100 years of service this year. Lufkin, Diboll, and Angelina Rotary members had a joint luncheon Wednedsay to honor their birthday.
