House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) released the following statement regarding the outcome of Tuesday’s election:

“Throughout the general election, one of the few issues that provided common ground was the need for investments in America’s transportation network and infrastructure.  With the results of Tuesday’s historic election now coming into focus, we have a unique opportunity to begin this work immediately by embracing innovative ideas and approaches to improving our infrastructure.  In the coming months, for example, Congress must pass an FAA reauthorization bill that modernizes our aging air traffic control system and significantly improves the efficiency of our aviation system.  I look forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump and my Senate and House colleagues to develop a transportation agenda that will benefit all Americans and ensure that our infrastructure is second to none.”
