Washington, DC – The Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure will hold its first hearing of the 113th Congress next week entitled “The Federal Role in America’s Infrastructure.”

The Full Committee hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, in 2167 Rayburn House Office Building.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue, Building America’s Future Co-Chair and former Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell, and Laborers’ International Union of North America General President Terry O’Sullivan have been invited to testify.

The Committee’s agenda this Congress includes addressing the need for a new Water Resources Development Act, reauthorizing passenger rail safety and reform legislation, and preparing for the next surface transportation reauthorization. The Committee’s first hearing of 2013 will help inform the panel’s work and highlight the federal role in strengthening the nation’s infrastructure.

“Transportation and infrastructure have long been recognized as federal responsibilities shared with the States. Understanding the federal role in financing, building, and maintaining an efficient system of infrastructure is critical to ensuring U.S. economic growth and global competitiveness,” said Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA).
