Chairman Shuster Response to President’s Comments on Infrastructure in State of the Union
“The president’s continued interest in wanting to work together to solve America’s infrastructure issues is a positive step. Whether it be the Water Resources Reform and Development Act or our bipartisan Public-Private Partnership Panel, the Committee has shown that it can solve our nation’s problems in a fiscally responsible manner.
"While I’m willing to work with President Obama on finding a way to fix our nation’s infrastructure, having to choose between infrastructure or the job-creating Keystone pipeline is a shell game that costs the American people further energy independence and job creation. Both are opportunities we should pursue and can achieve.”
