James Inhofe, R-Okla., right, speaks during the first meeting of the House and Senate conference on the transportation bill on Capitol Hill in Washington. Congress on Friday, June 29, 2012 emphatically approved legislation preserving jobs on transportation projects from coast to coast and avoiding interest rate increases on new loans to millions of college students, giving lawmakers campaign-season bragging rights on what may be their biggest economic achievement before the November elections.
