Published by Laura Olson on .

Washington bureau chief Tracie Mauriello reports this morning that U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster could be named chairman of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee as soon as Wednesday.

From her article:

The House Republican Steering Committee has included him on a list of recommended chairmanships. The recommendations are expected to be presented to the full House for ratification Wednesday.

Approval would make Mr. Shuster, of Blair County, the highest ranking Pennsylvania congressman.

Mr. Shuster has been a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for 11 years and chairman of the subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, Energy and Management. He follows in the footsteps of his father, former Congressman Bud Shuster, who led the committee from 1995 to 2001.
