List of House, Senate co-sponsors of Railroad Retirement bills

The lists of names on this page are the members of Congress currently supporting the Railroad Retirement & Survivors' Improvement Act of 2001. In the Senate, this legislation is identified as S. 697, and in the House as H.R. 1140.

BLE and GIA members are asked to review these lists. If their member of Congress is not listed, then that individual should be contacted and asked to support S. 697 and/or H.R. 1140.

In early April, members of Congress returned to their home districts for the Easter Recess.

Home office contact numbers for Senators and Representatives can be found in the blue page section of your local telephone book. Members should also be able to find this information on the House and Senate websites.
