Schedule for Transpo Bill Listening Tour Announced

More committee news...

Field hearings don't have the pomp and circumstance of Washington events, but don't expect to testify unless you're invited. Image: ##http://www.timbishop.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=79&parentid=3&sectiontree=3&itemid=1343##Tim Bishop's office##

Yesterday’s field hearing of the House Transportation Committee on high-speed rail in New York City wasn’t officially part of the series of field hearings on the reauthorization. The tentative schedule hits small towns, big cities, and suburbs:

    • February 14th – West Virginia (Ranking Democrat Nick Rahall’s home state)
    • February 17th – Philadelphia area (Republican committee freshmen Patrick Meehan and Lou Barletta are from the area, as is Democratic T&I member Tim Holden)
    • February 18th – Rochester, NY (freshman Republican Tom Reed’s district and not too far for some of Richard Hanna’s constituents)
    • February 19-20 – Columbus, Ohio, Indianapolis, and suburbs of Chicago (within reach of four Republican members’ districts and one Democrat)
    • February 21-23 – Portland, OR; Vancouver, WA; Fresno and Southern California (reaching four Republican districts and two Democrat)

The hearings may be focused on specific topics, which haven’t been announced yet. Witnesses must be invited to speak.
