WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama said on Monday he would unveil proposals next week aimed at spurring job growth in part through infrastructure improvements.

Obama made the comment as he announced he had picked Princeton economist Alan Krueger as the new chief of the Council of Economic Advisers.

He said next week he would lay out a series of steps that the US Congress can take immediately to put more money in the pockets of middle class families and put construction crews to work.
