Southerland Elected Vice Chair of Coast Guard Subcommittee
January 23, 2013

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster announced Tuesday that he has appointed Rep. Steve Southerland, II to serve as vice chairman of the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation for the 113th Congress.  Southerland's new role will enhance his leadership for Florida on Coast Guard, ports, and maritime issues in Congress.


"As a member of the House Transportation Committee hailing from a state with 20 ports, I understand the importance of bolstering Coast Guard readiness and strengthening our coastal economies," said Southerland.  "I appreciate Chairman Shuster's friendship and look forward to expanding my role on these maritime issues so critical to our nation's economic competiveness."


"Over the past two years, Rep. Southerland has consistently demonstrated a commitment to reforming America's vital infrastructure systems without losing his focus on making Washington spend smartly," said Shuster.  "His knowledge and expertise in coastal issues will be a welcome addition to the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee."
