Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) announced the committee leadership he intends to appoint for the 113th Congress.

“We have an extremely talented team of capable, proven leaders with diverse backgrounds that will be instrumental in the Committee’s important work this Congress,” Shuster said. “I look forward to working together to promote competitiveness and economic growth, reform programs, and strengthen our nation’s infrastructure.”

The committee’s vice chairman will be Rep. John J. Duncan Jr. (R-TN). As vice chairman, Duncan will play a critical role in moving forward the committee’s agenda. Duncan will also lead a series of special panels that will be tasked with making recommendations to the full committee.
