Obama to push for transportation spending
Obama to urge Congress to pass federal highway bill he says will save 1 million jobs
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' President Barack Obama will make a push for more transportation spending on Wednesday.

The White House says Obama will urge Congress to pass a federal highway bill that he says will protect about 1 million jobs.

At issue is the renewal of a transportation spending bill that expires Sept. 30. The House is considering a six-year, $230 billion bill paid entirely with current fuel taxes. The Senate proposal would last only two years and cost $109 billion.



The president will be joined in the Rose Garden by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and David Chavern, the chief operating officer of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
