Reid: IPO Bill Is Small Step Forward, Now House Republicans Must Take More Important Step Of Passing The Senate’s Bipartisan Transportation Jobs Bill

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following statement today following Senate passage of a small business capital formation bill:

“Passing this small business bill is a small step towards creating jobs, but now it’s time for House Republicans to take the much more important step of passing the Senate’s bipartisan transportation jobs bill, which nearly three million hard-working Americans rely on for their paychecks. This is not hard – there is a bipartisan bill on the table, all House Republican leaders have to do is bring it to the floor and let it pass with bipartisan support, instead of letting the Tea Party force yet another fight where there does not have to be one.”
