Governor Kitzhaber backs American Jobs Act

(Salem) – Statement from Governor Kitzhaber on President Obama’s speech to Congress and his announcement of the American Jobs Act:
“The American Jobs Act that President Obama unveiled last night is a much-needed step in the right direction for Oregon and the entire nation. In Oregon, it would translate into nearly 9,000 jobs on vital transit and school infrastructure projects for idled construction workers, funding for schools and incentives for the small businesses in our state to hire more workers. Clearly, this plan would help put Oregonians back to work, put more money in people’s pocket, and lift our state’s economy.”
