Later in the morning, the President will hold an event to call on Congress to move forward in a bipartisan way to pass a clean extension of the Surface Transportation Bill, which expires at the end of September, and a clean extension of the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization, which expires in mid-September. The President will be joined by Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, AFL-CIO President and member of the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness Richard Trumka, U.S. Chamber of Commerce COO David Chavern, and workers who would be affected if Congress fails to act.
