Republican Rep. Christopher Shays vowed today that if re-elected he will vote against House rules unless they include changes recommended by the 9/11 Commission.

At a wide-ranging Norwalk news conference, Shays, who will oppose Westport Democratic First Selectwoman Diane G. Farrell in November’s 4th Congressional District race, also defended his multiple visits to Iraq, including his sixth one last week.

“I think I am helping shape policy and saving lives,” he said, alluding to concerns raised by “my opponent” in the campaign.

Shays, a 17-year congressman whose work on Iraq and the war on terrorism has gained him national attention, again praised the 9/11 Commission’s report on the Sept. 11, 2001, attack.

“I believe strongly in every one of their recommendations,” he said. “They have done a superb job. I am working overtime to make sure their recommendations are implemented.”
