Members urged to contact Representatives on H.R. 1140

CLEVELAND, June 23, 2001 -- The BLE and GIA are urging all members to contact their members of Congress to ask that action be taken on H.R. 1140, the Railroad Retirement and Survivors' Improvement Act of 2001, before the House of Representatives begins its August recess.

The House will be out of session for a month-long recess from August 4-September 4; therefore, there is little time left for considering this much-needed piece of legislation. After this recess, there is only a month left before the October 5 target for adjournment until after the first of the year.

Contact information for Representatives is available on the following website:

Members can also contact their Representatives through the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
