Clean Extension of the Highway Bill

September 14, 2011
Speech

M. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of this bill which will keep people working building our infrastructure. 

Failure to pass this bill would put politics first and mean unnecessary economic pain for millions of Americans. 

I commend the majority for putting America first by bringing this bill up quickly and without any policy riders.  

As our infrastructure continues to crumble and unemployment remains above 9 percent we need to recognize that both issues can be addressed by investing in infrastructure. 

In Georgia, the highway bill provides more than $97 million a month for infrastructure jobs, employing more than 22,500 Georgians. 

I urge my colleagues to support this bill so we can move past this stalemate and pass a long term bill.
