Washington State's 4th District representative Doc Hastings makes a stop in Yakima today.

Hastings visited the Quanex Building Products company.

Hastings met with company management members, and was given a tour of the production plant.

Hastings, along with other fellow Republicans voted in favor of passing a bill that delayed the need to raise the debt ceiling until May -- that prevents any potential default on the debt -- Hastings says it felt like the best compromise between both parties.

"I think we helped the process by saying 'do a budget.' because we knew the debt ceiling was there, nobody wanted to see any default in our obligations," said Hastings, "We felt that this was the best process by which to do that."
