Ill. senator: House needs to pass transportation bill

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says thousands of road and bridge construction projects could be in jeopardy if the U.S. House doesn’t approve the federal transportation bill already passed by the Senate.

Durbin spoke to reporters in his Springfield home Sunday about the June 30 deadline for Congress to act.

The State Journal-Register reports that Durbin said the transportation legislation would create and protect millions of jobs nationwide, including almost 68,000 in Illinois.
