The following is the statement of U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA), Chairman of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, on the passing of former Congressman and Chairman of the Committee Jim Oberstar:

“Congress, Minnesota, and the Nation have lost a good man who dedicated his life to public service and our country’s transportation system.  Jim Oberstar was respected and admired for his tireless advocacy for strengthening our infrastructure, first as a staffer, then as a Member, and finally as the Chairman of this Committee.  I believe transportation was truly in his blood, and few possessed his breadth of knowledge and passion for these issues he understood to be so important to America.  I will miss my good friend, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
