U.S. House Republicans on Wednesday chose Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Hollidaysburg, to chair the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

Shuster, 51, will follow in the footsteps of his father, former Rep. Bud Shuster, who chaired the committee from 1995 to 2001.

“Transportation issues are among the most critical that we face in Congress and as a nation,” Shuster said in a statement.

Shuster said the committee, under his leadership, would “focus on strengthening America's transportation networks to make us more efficient, more competitive and more prosperous.”

Shuster has served on the transportation committee since he became a congressman in 2001.
