The Transportation Bill

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. BACA. Madam Speaker, across the Nation, Americans are calling for Congress to take immediate action to create new jobs. Instead of working on a bipartisan agenda to create jobs, Republicans are moving a transportation bill that slashes the infrastructure funding and destroys jobs.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has called this bill the worst transportation bill he has ever seen. The Republican transportation bill would eliminate 550,000 American jobs, cut highway investment in 45 States, and bankrupt the highway trust fund by $98 billion.

Congress must get serious about working together to solve the problems our Nation is facing. It just can't be ``my way or the highway.'' Let's do a jobs bill that will create jobs for the American people.
