President Barack Obama will make a push for more transportation spending on Wednesday.
The White House says Obama will urge Congress to pass a federal highway bill that he says will protect about 1 million jobs.
At issue is the renewal of a transportation spending bill that expires Sept. 30. The House is considering a six-year, $230 billion bill paid entirely with current fuel taxes. The Senate proposal would last only two years and cost $109 billion.
The president will be joined in the Rose Garden by Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and David Chavern, the chief operating officer of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
