Dear Friend,

Today the House passed an important transportation bill that will provide $284 billion in federal highway, transit and road safety funding through 2009.  The legislation will help correct problems of congestion, driver safety, and inefficient highway projects, while providing for the creation of millions of new U.S. jobs in the transportation sector and related industries. Here are some highlights of the bill: Job Security & Creation Ø     TEA-LU will protect existing and create millions of new U.S. jobs in the transportation sector—an industry integral to America’s economic success.

After serving 32 years in Congress I decided not to run for re-election this year. I will complete this term in Congress, continuing the full schedule we have planned for this year as Chairman of the International Relations Committee.

I have enjoyed a long career of serving you as the U.S. Representative of the sixth congressional district of Illinois. I want to thank all of you who have supported me these many years. Together we have a litany of accomplishments of which we can be proud including protecting the lives of the defenseless pre-born and the ailing elderly, supporting and assisting the mentally challenged, standing for moral family values, rebuilding education, improving infrastructure in our district and our state, protecting our homeland and preserving our freedom.

We have gone through many conflicts together; the Cold War, the Communist takeover in Nicaragua and Granada, Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, removal of Noriega from Panama, genocide in Bosnia, bombing of the World Trade Center, invasion of Afghanistan, invasion of Iraq and the present defense of our nation against insurgents. We all pray for peace while we must remain diligent to the dangers we face as a nation.

My offices will remain available to assist you until December. After that, if you need assistance with a federal problem, I suggest you contact either of your U.S. Senators’ offices until the newly elected U.S. Representative for the sixth district takes office in January 2007.

Thank you for the privilege of serving you.
