Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the announcement that Chairman Bill Shuster (PA-09) will retire at the end of this term:

“Bill Shuster has fought for the people of Pennsylvania’s ninth district every day he’s been in the House and rose to become an incredibly effective Chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. From shepherding major transportation and aviation legislation through his committee and through Congress to his thoughtful counsel and strong voice on the issues that face our nation, Bill’s fighting spirit and leadership will be missed after 2018. Yet as we look to the legislative agenda this year and work with President Trump to upgrade our nation’s infrastructure and improve the lives of the American people, I know that Bill will continue to be an important leader in our conference to accomplish all the work we need to get done.”
