Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) today announced two senior staff changes.

Holly Woodruff Lyons has been promoted to Deputy General Counsel for the full Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and Matt Sturges has been appointed Aviation Subcommittee Staff Director.

“Since becoming Chairman, I have relied on the knowledge, talent, and experience of both Holly and Matt to help advance the Committee’s agenda, and their hard work and guidance will continue to be invaluable as they assume their new roles with the Committee,” Shuster said.

Holly Woodruff Lyons served as the Subcommittee on Aviation Republican Staff Director since 2007, and has been a member of the Subcommittee staff since 2002.  She has worked on multiple Federal Aviation Administration reauthorizations, and most recently was the lead House negotiator on the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 and the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme Prohibition Act.  Prior to coming to Capitol Hill, Woodruff Lyons was an attorney at the Federal Aviation Administration and worked in private legal practice.

Matt Sturges joined the Committee as Director of Member Services in January 2013.  In the 112th Congress, Sturges served as Legislative Director for Congressman and Transportation Committee Member Patrick Meehan of Pennsylvania, including advising the Congressman on transportation, energy, labor, and environmental policy.  Sturges also has previous experience working for the House Republican Conference under Chairman Deborah Pryce, was Deputy Director of Government Affairs and chief liaison to the House of Representatives for the Republican National Committee, and was a consultant for an institutional fundraiser.
