House Speaker John Boehner gave his weekly legislative briefing to the press along with Representatives John Mica, Doc Hastings, and Steve Stivers. He announced a jobs bill that he said aims to “link job creation, energy production, and infrastructure together,” and would expand U.S. domestic energy production and use the increased federal royalties to pay for infrastructure projects. He said he is hopeful the U.S. House can act on this legislation before the end of 2011.
