WASHINGTON (AP) — Conservatives and the nation's biggest business lobby sparred Wednesday over immigration overhaul, with advocates vowing a renewed effort to get the House to act this year and opponents digging in against anything that shifts the political spotlight from President Barack Obama's troubled health care law.
The U.S. economy will avoid recession in 2013, the chief of America's leading business lobby said Thursday, but won't grow fast enough to make a big dent in the nation's still sizable jobless rate.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, just one week removed from his victorious recall election, told a group of business leaders in Washington on Wednesday his state is now "open for business."
In an election-year decision that divided the Democrats' twin pillars of big labor and environmentalists, the Obama administration Wednesday rejected the proposed route for the Keystone XL oil pipeline that would provide up to 20,000 jobs on a project stretching from Canada to the Texas coast.
The Obama administration is hoping to build on the momentum of recent free-trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama as attention turns to the Trans-Pacific Partnership and trade promotion authority.
A majority of U.S. small businesses fear the economy is on the "wrong track" and do not plan to increase hiring in the coming year, according to a new survey from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Monday.
He said the organization would engage in grassroots lobbying, communications and partnership with unions, similar to what it did to secure a bipartisan bill in the Senate last year.
Later, in a news conference, Donohue said the chamber had received a "very positive response" in the House on immigration.
