House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Passes American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act Backed by Job Creators

Congressman John Boehner
February 6, 2012

The House Natural Resources Committee has already passed portions of the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act that will remove barriers to American energy production to lower gas prices and help create jobs, and the House Ways & Means Committee will continue work on the bill today.
