Secretary LaHood And Senate Democrats Call On House Republicans to Pass Bipartisan Jobs Bill

Mar 21, 2012

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood joined Senate Democrats in a press conference today urging the House to pass the Senate's bipartisan transportation bill that would create and sustain almost three million jobs.   If the highway bill does not pass the House by March 31st, thousands of construction projects across the country would ground to a halt and hundreds of thousands of workers will stop receiving paychecks.  The Senate's bipartisan transportation bill will help rebuild America's crumbling roads and bridges, and create jobs in all fifty states.
