Clyburn Calls On Congress To Act On Jobs

Statement

"Congress needs to get to work now to enact policies that will produce an economy that works for working people.

"I agree with the President that Congress should pass his American Jobs Act that was introduced last year. An independent analysis estimates passage of this legislation will create 1.9 million jobs and add 2 percent to our nation's economy. Congress needs to work on a bipartisan basis to create jobs now with the President's plan to bolster hiring in key areas like teachers, police officers, and construction workers.

"With the clock ticking toward the July 1 deadline, Congress also needs to pass the bipartisan highway construction jobs bill and legislation to prevent the doubling of student loan interest rates to keep the dream of a college education affordable for working families. It's time for the Republican Leaders in Congress to stop playing partisan games and get to work for the American people."
