[Excerpt] With unemployment remaining at unacceptable levels and the state of America's infrastructure in serious decline. Congress's top priority should be to produce bipartisan surface transportation legislation that is focused on putting millions of Americans back to work rebuilding our nation's infrastructure. Instead, H.R. 7 goes down a partisan path that will destroy thousands of jobs, undercut our nation's commitment to mass transit, and weaken America's global competitiveness. As a result, the AFL-CIO cannot support this bill in its current form.
