Washington, DC – Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) released the following statement on today’s retirement announcement from fellow committee member Howard Coble (R-NC):

“I have worked with Howard Coble since I came to Congress and joined the Transportation Committee 13 years ago.  Since that time, I have known Howard to be a knowledgeable, hard-working member of the Congress and the Committee, and the 6th District of North Carolina has been fortunate to have him as a representative for the last three decades.  Howard is the only former member of the United States Coast Guard serving in Congress, and I have appreciated his dedication and insight on U.S. maritime and transportation issues.  I wish him the very best as he finishes out his term in Congress and in his future retirement.”
