Mark Pryor statement on Obama jobs bill

Posted By on Tue, Oct 11, 2011 at 6:29 PM

U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor's office issued the following statement tonight:

In order to reach better days, job creation should be the number one priority in Congress. This jobs package, far from perfect, deserves debate and a vigorous amendment process. I see it as an opportunity to insert proposals to fix the fundamental challenges holding our economy back and chart a long-term course to move us forward. Only then can we inspire the confidence and certainty to get banks financing and businesses growing and hiring again.

Readers take over. The bill won't make it tonight.
