NSPE-PAC Participates in Event for Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster

Thursday, May 8, 2014

Also on May 8, NSPE’s Government Relations Manager Arielle Eiser participated in a political action committee event with Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA). NSPE’s top legislative issues were discussed, including final passage of the Water Resources Reform Development, which would authorize projects for the Army Corps of Engineers, as well as the pending reauthorization of the nation’s comprehensive surface transportation law. Chairman Shuster is the lead legislator in the House of Representatives on both of these initiatives and has shown a strong commitment to a collaborative bipartisan approach on transportation and infrastructure that has yielded results unmatched by the rest of Congress. Chairman Shuster is also playing a key role in the Highway Trust Fund, which may run out of funding as early as July.
