WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is issuing an open letter to Congress and the White House calling for measures designed to increase employment, including greater oil drilling, quick road and bridge construction and temporary corporate tax breaks.

The chamber estimates its proposals could encourage corporations to spend accumulated cash and generate more than 6 million jobs by 2013, and even more in ensuing years.

The chamber is looking to influence job creation proposals just days after a bleak employment report showed no net job growth in August. It also comes four days before President Barack Obama delivers an economic speech to a joint session of Congress.

Chamber President Thomas Donohue released the seven-page letter as the first step in a campaign to put a business imprint on the jobs debate.
