Chairman Shuster represents the 9th Congressional District of Pennsylvania. He has served on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee since coming to Congress in 2001 and was elevated to Chairman of the Committee at the beginning of the 113th Congress.
Prior to coming to Congress, Chairman Shuster worked on his family’s farm in Bedford County, and gained valuable marketing and management experience with the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Corporation, as well as with Bandag Incorporated where he served as District Manager. He is also an experienced small business owner, having owned and operated an automobile dealership, in East Freedom, Pa.
Since his election in 2001, Chairman Shuster has dedicated his tenure in Congress to transportation. Prior to his role as Chairman of the full Committee, he previously served as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials and as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management. The Chairman has a reputation of being one of the most bipartisan Chairs in the House and he regularly reaches out to NATCA leadership. During the FAA furloughs in April 2013, Chairman Shuster led the fight in the House Republican Conference to end the furloughs and put FAA aviation safety professionals back to work.
