Senator Durbin in Spring Valley – Senator Durbin in Spring Valley

         Heavy machinery lines Third Street in Spring Valley where a deep rut has been dug into the road.  It’s part of a major sewer project that’s being paid for using federal stimulus money.

          One of the big supporters of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act is U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.  The Democrat made a stop at the project site Tuesday afternoon.

          He thinks it’s projects like this that will help the economy.

          Mayor Cliff Banks says it was money well needed.  He hopes it prevents people in that area from having to deal with flooded basements.

          Before leaving for a tour of the Veteran’s Home in La Salle, Durbin told reporters he supports the recently approved healthcare overhaul and says the reaction he’s been hearing has been good.
