Mayor of Baltimore: American Jobs Act Will Help Us Grow Out of Recession

Says the President’s plan will put people back to work making Baltimore’s infrastructure safer for generations to come


Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says the country needs the American Jobs Act in order to “grow out of this great recession.”  As an older city, Baltimore has tremendous infrastructure needs and its mayor believes the $50 billion investment in rebuilding that is a core component of the Jobs Act will make the streets and schools of her city “safer for generations to come.” Rawlings-Blake also applauds the Jobs Act’s focus on offering relief to small business owners, who she says are the “backbone” of Baltimore's economy.
