Numerous reports out of Washington indicate that U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar will have a tough time getting his transportation funding bill passed this year.

But one new story indicates the bill is on the right path: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi backs it.

"I am a proponent for bringing up a full transportation bill, which is a great jobs bill..." Roll Call newspaper quotes Pelosi as saying.

That may be just what Oberstar needs in light of other opposition.
