WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2011 – TOMORROW, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will give remarks and hold a press conference on the American Jobs Act and efforts to strengthen the economy in Iowa. The purpose of the American Jobs Act is to put more people back to work, put more money in the pockets of working Americans, and do so without adding to the deficit. In Iowa, without adding a dime to the deficit, this Act will provide a tax cut for over 60,000 businesses, support the jobs of 4,100 teachers and first responders and immediately provide over 5,000 construction workers a job improving highways and other critical infrastructure. A typical household in Iowa will receive a tax cut of around $1,580.
On Saturday morning, Secretary Vilsack is hosting a White House Business Council Meeting with business, community and agricultural leaders to explore ways federal, state and local officials can work together to improve economic conditions and create jobs.
