Denham: much more needs to be done to create American jobs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Jeff Denham today released the following statement regarding this morning’s employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“While lower unemployment rates are always welcome news, especially as we head into the holidays, we must be realistic about the situation. There is still much more that we can do to create American jobs and House Republicans have demonstrated this for the past year. Just this week, we passed three more bills to create jobs and we continue to work in bi-partisan ways towards pro-growth strategies. Unemployment in the Valley remains well above the national average, and we need to remain focused on getting people back to work by bringing a reliable source of water to the Valley and reducing regulations on small businesses and farms.”
