Shuster: Infrastructure Package Not on Fast Track

RR021517 Bill Shuster

Feb. 15, 2017 – House Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Shuster recently delivered a message that’s already becoming clear to the transportation world: A big legislative package to fund infrastructure isn’t going to happen right away. “You’re not going to see an infrastructure [bill] in the next month or two,” Shuster said at a National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners meeting. He did however mention that he met with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. Another tidbit from Shuster: National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn will lead the White House’s infrastructure team. D.J. Gribbin has already been picked as special assistant to the president for infrastructure. Source: Politico’s Morning Transportation Report.
