The Hill today surveys business trade associations and finds, “Businesses lackluster in support of jobs bill.” Excerpt:
NAM spokeswoman Laura Narvaiz said the group supports the additional infrastructure spending in the jobs package as a way to create jobs and growth. But she said the jobs bill needed to be more “comprehensive.”
“We remain concerned … that the House jobs bill doesn’t go far enough to ensure long-term growth and create lasting high-paying jobs,” Narvaiz said.
The U.S. Chamber opposes the reallocation of remaining TARP funds, while the NFIB objects to the lack of a payroll tax holiday.
