Bunk beds in dorms, yes, but baby cribs? Now that's different, yet it seems there's a crying need for just that kind of accommodation at the Hubert H. Humphrey Job Corps Center in St. Paul.

This Week from Congresswoman Betty McCollum

August 10, 2010 Statements For the Record

Madam Speaker, today the House of Representatives is voting on a jobs bill that will keep Americans working. This is a jobs bill that will keep 161,000 teachers in the classroom rather than in the unemployment line. This is a bill that prevents thousands of first-responders who are protecting our communities today from losing their jobs tomorrow. Passing this jobs bill is not a luxury or an act of political patronage as some Republicans claim.
