Shuster officially named Transportation Committee chair

By CCJ Staff on
Rep. Bill Shuster

Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) was named the successor to Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.) Wednesday as the chairman of the House’s Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for the 113th Congress. Shuster has been on the committee since 2001 — his first term. Mica, who was facing a term-limit as the committee’s chair, ended his bid to retain the position this week and endorsed Shuster. 

Shuster’s father Bud chaired the committee from 1995 to 2001. The committee has congressional oversight of the U.S. Department of Transportation, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and will be responsible for engineering the next highway bill when the current MAP-21 funding expires in 2014.

I would think that Bill Shuster will take aim at the needs of NYC and NJ in wake of the tragedy from Hurricane Sandy...

That a merry Christmas can become possible for these people, especially for the children who need school supplies and toys for their creative growth.

Congrad's Mr. Shuster.

Al of GOD's most important blessings be to you and your loved ones for this Christmas and into the new year.
