Obama Tells Congress To Hurry Up & Pass Highway Bill

Voters should pressure Congress to pass a federal highway bill, according to President Obama. In a speech last night, the president said he's eager to pass a bill in order to get folks working on jobs building and repairing roads and other transportation infrastructure.

The current version of the bill expires Sept. 30, so time is running out. The Hill.com has the story on what's taking so long.
