U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today released the following statement on the news of Sec. Ray LaHood's retirement.
"The country and the state will miss the leadership and experience that Ray LaHood brought to the Department of Transportation," said Davis. "The way Sec. LaHood was able to work across the aisle to get things done for this country was admirable and his effectiveness and sensibility will be greatly missed in Washington. He was also extremely accessible - just last week I had the opportunity to meet with Sec. LaHood to talk about some of the transportation issues in Illinois.
"I thank Sec. LaHood for his years of service and wish him the best of luck in his retirement."
