(OPEN):
HOW CAN WE CREATE JOBS, BOOST THE ECONOMY, AND IMPROVE OUR TRANSPORTATION-SYSTEM?  ACCORDING TO AMERICAN IRON AND STEEL INSTITUTE PRESIDENT AND C-E-O, TOM GIBSON, BY AUTHORIZING A LONG-TERM TRANSPORTATION-BILL--THIS YEAR...

(GIBSON):
"
TO MAINTAIN AMERICA'S DOMINANT ROLE IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY, IT'S ESSENTIAL TO BE ABLE TO MOVE GOODS WITHIN OUR BORDERS EFFICIENTLY.  CURRENTLY, THE U-S RANKS 23RD WORLDWIDE IN INFRASTRUCTURE-QUALITY--AND THAT UNDERMINES OUR COMPETITIVENESS.  PASSING A MULTI-YEAR TRANSPORTATION-BILL THAT'S FUNDED AT LEVELS HIGH ENOUGH TO ADDRESS OUR CURRENT NEEDS WOULD HELP RESTORE OUR INFRASTRUCTURE-SYSTEM, PUT AMERICANS BACK TO WORK, AND STIMULATE THE ECONOMY.  THE STATE OF OUR INFRASTRUCTURE HAS A DIRECT IMPACT ON THE STRENGTH OF THE NATION'S ECONOMY.  CHINA AND OTHER NATIONS ARE INVESTING AT MUCH-HIGHER LEVELS THAN THE U-S--AND WE SIMPLY CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER.  EVERY ONE-BILLION DOLLARS [THAT'S] INVESTED IN FEDERAL HIGHWAY-SPENDING CREATES OVER 30-THOUSAND NEW JOBS.  GIVEN OUR STUBBORN UNEMPLOYMENT-RATE OF OVER NINE-PERCENT, THE CONGRESS AND THE ADMINISTRATION NEED TO JOIN TOGETHER--AND ACT NOW.
