President Barack Obama is holding a White House news conference Thursday morning.
It's Obama's first news conference since announcing his $447 billion jobs bill in early September.
Since then, Obama has been traveling the country trying to rally public support for the proposal. He is expected to use Thursday's news conference to urge Congress to pass the measure.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says the Senate will vote on the bill next week. But Republicans oppose a tax increase on million-dollar earners added to the bill by Senate Democrats.
Obama will take questions at 11 a.m. EDT in the East Room.
