    As your Member of Congress, your safety is a top priority of mine, and I want to ensure that you are properly updated and informed on the latest information about the Coronavirus, known as COVID-19. Please be assured that the Congress and Administration, including the White House and all relevant agencies, are coordinating to assess the situation and respond. The United States is taking every necessary step to keep our country safe against the spread of this virus.
  • LaHood Announces 2021 Military Service Academy Nominations

    I am always honored to have the ability to nominate a group of outstanding individuals from the entirety of the 18th District to be considered to attend our great service academies. After learning about their accomplishments and speaking with each individual, I see a group of current leaders that will continue to display core Illinois values while giving back to this great country. Having these courageous young men and women in our district is humbling, and I pray this next chapter brings success and safety to them.
  • Rep. LaHood Introduces Clean Start Legislation to Keep Workers and Customers Safe as Businesses Reopen

    COVID-19 is impacting every American. As stay-at-home orders ease, businesses and workers are prepared to take unprecedented measures to get their livelihoods back on track. Getting folks back to work is essential to reinvigorating our economy, and so is ensuring the safety of workers and customers to prevent additional outbreaks. That's why U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy and I introduced to make certain businesses can take extra precautions to keep our communities safe and get folks back to work.
  • Supporting Illinois Firefighters and First Responders

    COVID-19 and forced shutdowns are creating difficult budgetary decisions for cities across the United States. This is threatening the jobs of first responders and firefighters like those in Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois and Peoria Firefighters Local 50. That's why I called on FEMA to provide greater flexibility to SAFER grantees, so experienced firemen and women can keep their jobs
