WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans say President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats should match their focus on bills designed to promote jobs.

In the weekly Republican radio and Internet address, House Republicans list more than a dozen bills that have passed the GOP-controlled House with the goal of improving the economy.

The bills they cite include those changing welfare regulations, offering more job training and education, curtailing patent litigation, scaling back regulations for small-business owners and building the Keystone XL pipeline.

The chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, congressman John Kline of Minnesota, says more legislation is in the works.
