White House wants quick action on jobs proposals

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

According to the White House, President Barack Obama hopes that lawmakers will share his sense of urgency in taking steps to create jobs and help the economy when Congress returns this coming week from its summer break.

Obama plans a prime-time speech to Congress on Thursday night and is expected to propose a mix of tax credits and public works spending.  Spokesman Jay Carney says Obama will offer plans that historically have attracted bipartisan support and will, if passed, "positively affect growth and job creation."
