 ASSOCIATED BUILDERS AND CONTRACTORS ISSUE STATEMENT
 ON HIGHWAY BILL SIGNING IN DALLAS
 WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- John B. Smith, national president, Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., issued the following statement on the highway bill signing in Dallas:
 The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 signed today into law by President Bush will translate into 2 million additional jobs over the next six years and comes at a time where the construction industry is desperately seeking a stimulus to pull itself from a two-year decline.
 The bill represents a genuine commitment by the Bush administration to address the alarming condition of our nation's infrastructure. Rebuilding the infrastructure remains one of our country's most pressing needs. According to a recent survey of the mayors of major U.S. cities, the deteriorating condition of our roads, bridges and water and sewage systems ranks as their second most pressing concern.
 ABC is a national construction organization representing approximately 17,500 construction and construction-related firms in 77 chapters across the United States and is the only group committed exclusively to merit (open) shop contractors.
