    I called Senator Dick Durbins office and the aide seemed rather confussed. I had to explain twice why I was calling. He wanted to know if this was an ammendment to the transpertation bill. He didn't know if would be voted on today or how the senator planned to vote.

    Thank you for calling! Yes, the RESTORE Act amendment is to the transportation bill, and the Senate is planning on voting on the amendment early this afternoon.
