It’s Official: Bill Shuster Named Transportation Committee Chair

false

Republicans met today to choose committee chairs, and Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA) has been placed at the head of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. The former chair, John Mica, dropped his request yesterday to stay on as chair despite term limits.

You can read all about Shuster’s record on rail and bike/ped issues in these recent posts.

Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) highlighted Shuster's right-wing cred in his statement on the selection: "In Bill Shuster, House Republicans have selected a strong conservative leader with a record of reform and a proven commitment to strengthening our nation's infrastructure."

Shuster himself just thanked his colleagues for the honor.
